Multimodal Operations Track Breakout: Battery Electric Bus – Part 2
December 1, 2021 | 3:00 – 4:00 PM ET
Resiliency for Battery Electric Buses: Transit agencies across the country are beginning to transition to battery electric buses in order to reduce their emissions. This presentation will explore resiliency planning for electric buses and how it differs from other vehicle fuel-types, including diesel, CNG, and hydrogen fuel cell. The presentation will also summarize the reliability of electricity grids across the country and how this may change with more frequent climate change events. Based on the experience of Denver RTD and interviews with other transit agencies, this presentation will review the various resiliency strategies that are being planned and implemented for electric bus fleets. These resiliency solutions include strategic fleet mixes, backup generators, microgrids, and partnerships with utilities, among others. This presentation is intended to be a helpful starting point for agencies to plan for a resilient zero-emission bus fleet.
