ZeEUS – Zero Emission Urban Bus System
ZeEUS is co-funded by the European Commission under the 7th Research & Innovation Framework Programme, Mobility & Transport Directorate General under grant agreement n° 605485.
ZeEUS, the Zero Emission Urban Bus System, aims to be the main EU activity to extend the fully-electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network. To achieve its mission, ZeEUS is testing innovative electric bus technologies with different charging infrastructure solutions in ten demonstration sites across Europe. Thanks to varied geographical and topographical characteristics, the ZeEUS demonstrations validate economic, environmental and societal viability of the electric solutions. The ZeEUS consortium represent the entire stakeholder spectrum: public transport authorities and operators, bus manufacturers, industry suppliers, energy providers, national and international associations, research centers and consultancies. Moreover, the ZeEUS project closely follows the development of electric bus systems all around the world through the ZeEUS Observatory.
ISEA is project lead for the Muenster demonstration where we together with project partner “Stadtwerke Münster” successfully brought several electric busses into regular operation. The data is gathered and analyzed. Based on extensive cell tests, life-cycle costs of different operation strategies were calculated. This led to optimized electrification strategies of public transport.
