ABOUT THE ZEB CONFERENCE
Accelerating the adoption of battery & fuel cell electric transport buses
WHAT’S NEXT IN CLEAN TRANSIT
After the success of the 2016 London conference, the Zero Emission Bus conference will return for a second edition in Cologne on 27 th and 28 th November 2018. The conference is organised with the support of the mayor office. The Mayor of Cologne, Ms Reker will open the conference.
The Zero Emission Bus conference brings together 300 policy makers, bus operators and industry experts to drive forward the realisation of zero emission public transport for Europe.
National and regional policy makers are under increasing pressure to provide clean solutions for the transport sector to improve air quality across Europe’s cities and regions. The Zero Emission Bus (ZEB) conference aims to provide these solutions and inform policy makers of the different options available to them from the battery and fuel cell electric bus industries. Participants are invited to join the exchange of ideas on these innovative technologies, and how barriers to their effective roll out can be overcome.
The ZEB conference is also an open invitation to operators, industry players and investors alike to participate in a new wave of zero emissions technology for public transport and get involved in ongoing and future European initiatives.Register For Updates View Agenda
