About the Event
Back by popular demand, the 2nd Annual Canadian Zero Emission Bus (ZEB) Technologies & Transit Operations Conference in 2022, promises to be even bigger and better than before.
The need for change in Canada is real. As human beings, we emit 1.5 per cent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Our transportation needs – the cars and trucks we drive – make up 30 per cent of our greenhouse gas emissions, and yet, we’re driving and buying more cars than ever. All of this offsets environmental advances we have made in other areas, like the cancellation of coal-fired electricity in Ontario or the incentivization of electric buses in Quebec.
If Canada is going to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, fulfilling our COP26 ‘Route Zero’ pledge to sell only zero-emission cars and vans by 2040 won’t suffice. Deep cuts and behavioural changes across society are the only way out.
To get to zero emissions, transit agencies need to reframe how they organize routes to enable recharging – buses need to recharge regularly, and they’ll often do it right on the road, with overhead chargers.
This conference will focus on the newest technology for zero emissions buses, including battery electric buses (BEBs), renewable natural gas (RNGs) buses, electric school buses, hydrogen fuel cell electric buses, electrified autonomous transit and policy solutions and alternative thinking on zero-emissions transit systems. It's a one-stop-shop for all things related to low carbon mass mobility in Canada.
If you're a transit agency, transit operator, manufacturer , consulting agency or utility agency, you don't want to miss this conference that will cover everything related to Zero Emission Buses!
