2013 - 2017


ZeEUS, the 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, ZeEUS 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 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 available here

The project was funded by the European Commssion's Directorate General for Mobility and Transport thought the FP7 Programme. It ran from November 2013 to April 2017.
