ZeEUS, the Zero Emission Urban Bus System, aims to be the main EU activity to extend the fully-electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network. It fits within the context of the European Commission’s objective to create a competitive and sustainable transport system.

    To achieve its mission, ZeEUS is testing innovative electric bus technologies with different charging infrastructure solutions in ten demonstration sites across Europe. Thanks to varied geographical and topographical characteristics, the ZeEUS demonstrations validate economic, environmental and societal viability of the electric solutions.
    The ZeEUS consortium represents the entire stakeholder spectrum: public transport authorities and operators, bus manufacturers, industry suppliers, energy providers, national and international associations, research centres and consultancies.
    Moreover, the ZeEUS project closely follows the development of electric bus systems all around the world through the ZeEUS Observatory. Selected Observed and Monitored Demonstrations directly contribute to some of the ZeEUS core activities and strategic outputs.
    • Extend fully-electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network composed of high-capacity buses
    • Evaluate the economic, environmental and societal feasibility of electric urban bus systems through live operational scenarios across Europe
    • Facilitate the market uptake of electric buses in Europe with dedicated support tools and actions
    • Support decision-makers with guidelines and tools on "if", "how" and "when" to introduce electric buses
    This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement number 605485.
