Bringing electrification to the heart of the urban bus network.
ZeEUS - Zero Emission Urban Bus System - aimed to extend the fully electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network, fitting within the context of the European Commission’s objective to create a competitive and sustainable transport system.
To achieve its mission, the project tested innovative electric bus technologies with different charging infrastructure solutions in ten demonstration sites across Europe: London (UK), Stockholm (Sweden), Cagliari (Italy), Barcelona (Spain), Warsaw (Poland), Pilsen (Czech Republic), Eindhoven (Netherlands), Bonn (Germany) and Münster (Germany). Thanks to varied geographical and topographical characteristics, the ZeEUS demonstrations validated the economic, environmental and societal viability of the electric solutions.

The ZeEUS Observatory closely followed the evolution of urban bus system electrification around the globe and brings together the widest set of direct experiences with electric urban buses that ran in Europe through the Group of Observed Sites. ZeEUS eBUS Report is available here
The project was funded by the European Commission's Directorate General for Mobility and Transport through the FP7 Programme.
