Battery Electric Bus Deployment Considerations in Developing Countries

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


Electrifying the transportation sector holds many promises and there are numerous strategies for doing so, including the deployment of battery electric buses (BEBs). BEBs can improve air quality (particularly in urban areas), may help curb greenhouse gas emissions, and can have positive impacts on public health and the quality of life for city inhabitants. This fact sheet steps through the six essential BEB considerations: 1) implementation planning, 2) technology selection, 3) economic impacts, 4) charging infrastructure, 5) operational, and 6) maintenance.
