Led by UITP and co-funded by the European Commission, the ZeEUS project aims at extending the fully-electric solution to a wider 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: Barcelona (ES), Bonn (DE), Cagliari (IT), London (UK), Munster (DE), Paris (FR), Plzen (CZ), Randstad (NL), Stockholm (SE) and Warsaw (PL). Thanks to varied geographical and topographical characteristics, the ZeEUS demonstrations validate economic, environmental and societal viability of the e-buses.
The ZeEUS consortium represent the entire stakeholder spectrum: public transport authorities and operators, bus manufacturers, industry suppliers, energy providers, national and international associations, research centres and consultancies.
Moreover, the ZeEUS project closely follows the development of electric bus systems all around the world through the ZeEUS Observatory. Selected Observed and Monitored Demonstrations directly contribute to some of the ZeEUS core activities and strategic outputs.
