Global Mass Transit is organising its sixth annual conference on “Clean Buses in Europe”, on May 11-12, 2023 at the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel in The Netherlands.
The mission of this conference is to discuss the progress and highlight opportunities in the deployment of clean buses, especially zero-emission buses (ZEBs), in the region. It will examine European Commission’s latest initiatives, nationwide programmes, city-level commitments, relevant experiences, best practices, issues with large-scale deployments, lessons learnt and the role of rapidly evolving technology in the area of zero-emission buses and related infrastructure. It will also provide information on formulating urban strategy plans, as well as on procuring, financing, operating and maintaining clean and zero-emission buses.
The conference will bring together policymakers, transit agencies, city government officials, OEMs, bus manufacturers, suppliers of bus components, technology providers, energy providers, charging solution suppliers and battery manufacturers, hydrogen-fuelling infrastructure providers, funding agencies, multilateral development banks, consultants, researchers and academicians. It will cover a range of clean buses and solutions. Examples will be provided for large, medium and small transit agencies.
The conference will have targeted presentations, panel discussions and case studies, with participation from a wide range of international experts, who will provide valuable insights and actionable advice. The agenda will cover the plans of cities for deploying clean and zero-emission buses in Europe. It will also highlight the latest technological developments and solutions to improve the customer experience.
The conference will, moreover, help understand the role governments, public transport authorities, transport operators, manufacturers, and consultants can play in deploying clean buses in a city or region. Additionally, it will provide insights into the offerings of leading manufacturers and suppliers.
There will also be a dedicated session on the experience of leading cities in the deployment of clean buses. This will provide an opportunity to learn how to deploy clean buses and charging/fuelling infrastructure, mobilise funding, and manage stakeholder expectations.
