Busworld is the bi-annual conference and exhibition for people and organizations involved in public bus transportation. This year it was moved to Brussels Expo and more than 40.000 people found their way to it.
It is quite clear that electrification of bus transportation is a big thing although also other drive train technologies, like CNG & fuel cell, were promoted. City busses is expected to be the first area where the electrification will have a break through and despite the challenges seen in a number of projects over the last few years, the technologies continues to evolve and prices are going down, so the real commercial break-through is probably not far away.
The 2'nd fully charged live show will be at the Silverstone race track on June 6-8.
We'll be there - and looking forward to it. Check out the program here>>>
