What a refreshing shower of technical details the eBussed Tech webinar 2 was! Uniting two angles to e-buses, the webinar included a forward-looking and solutions providing a presentation of a newly launched e-bus and in-depth information on research results of a grid operation during e-bus charging.
Erik Henneken, e-Mobility Manager in the Utrecht-based company Tribus, presented the circumstances urban areas are facing. There are several ways to tackle the problem, such as offering the passengers’ bicycles a ride along the recently launched e-bus Movitas. According to Mr Henneken, the bus has several advantages, such as stainless-steel chassis, modular structure, and high accessibility.
