As city centre air quality targets tighten, more and more bus operators are looking towards low carbon transport to ensure these targets are met.
Over recent years, bus manufacturers have introduced new ranges of hybrid and full electric vehicles to match the increase in demand from clients. Today Optare, BYD, Volvo and Yutong electric buses can be found operating across cities in the UK and Europe.
The installation of charging infrastructure for these vehicles requires in depth planning and a specialist team. A typical project will require involvement from the following parties: network operator, civils contractor, project consultant, HV & LV electrical works, traffic management, hardware supplier, energy provider, bus operator, electrical engineer and end client.
