We are excited to release our Electric Bus Technology Transport Research Project.
The report provides an overview of current electric bus technology and makes recommendations of the best way forward for New Zealand.
Electric buses are already becoming the bus of choice for a number of cities and public transport providers worldwide. They can deliver benefits in terms of energy efficiency, environmental impact, passenger comfort, and integration with renewable energy sources.
Given the high proportion of New Zealand patronage delivered by bus, developments in electric bus technology provide an exciting opportunity to significantly improve the environmental performance of New Zealand’s public transport systems, and contribute to the clean, green vision for New Zealand.
