Hybrid Buses

21 January 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Steve Johnson will give an overview of diesel-electric hybrid bus development with particular emphasis on the European bus market. He will describe the process leading to Lothian Buses’ introduction of the first hybrid bus fleet in Scotland in 2010 along with his perspective on which emerging technologies are likely to be picked up by operators. While focussing on diesel-electric buses the talk will also cover other alternative low-carbon solutions including CNG, full electric and biodiesel powered buses and their relative merits. The talk will conclude with a vision of public transport for the future.
