ABB E-mobility is pioneering a zero-emission future by offering a wide portfolio of smart, safe, and reliable EV charging solutions for the electrification of electric car, bus, and truck fleets. With a decade of experience and more than 1,500 employees around the world, ABB E-mobility has delivered over one million EV chargers across more than 85 countries, including over 50,000 DC fast chargers.

For bus fleet operators looking to go electric, bp pulse handles all aspects of charge management, from the site design of charging depots to optimizing energy costs to the maintenance of charging infrastructure.

The company is “de-risking” fleet electrification through two core services: its intelligent, cloud-based charge management software, Omega, which optimizes the cost of EV charging, fleet uptime, and other factors; and the holistic Charging-as-a-Service support model that dramatically reduces upfront capital expenditures.

The Lightning eMotors Mobile DC fast charger addresses electric bus adoption challenges by providing portable, quickly deployable charging. The unit can be charged offsite and set up in high traffic areas that don’t support DC fast charging, like national parks, transit bus centers, or sports venues. It can also be used as a towed range extender, providing power on long-haul coach tours. And of course, it’s an ideal out-of-charge rescue device.

Make the transition to electric buses easier with Optibus' EV management software. Using algorithms and artificial intelligence, Optibus supports agencies, cities, and operators in planning, scheduling, and operating electric routes.

Their EV solution quickly explores multiple scenarios, improves the predictability of timetables and schedules, and optimizes electricity costs and charging times and locations, while accounting for road conditions, traffic, weather, and more.

As transit agencies move to fully-electric bus fleets, large-scale charging infrastructure will play a vital role in achieving transportation electrification goals. Proterra offers a decade of charging installation experience as well as custom EV charging solutions delivering a comprehensive set of products to scale zero emission fleets.

Proterra’s fleet-scale charging solution is highly configurable offering maximum flexibility at a minimal footprint that can support up to 24 vehicles simultaneously, and up to 48 sequentially.\

The EPA’s $5B Clean Bus grants require school e-buses ordered between October 2022 to April 2023, have eligible infrastructure installed by October 2024. But the timeline for infrastructure permits often takes two years, and the investment may not be feasible for contractors on leased properties.

e-Boost solves the dilemma with a sustainably powered, off-grid, mobile charging solution. Pioneer e-Boost’s mobility can help districts better understand range, routes, and weather factors without leaving students stranded by a “bricked” e-Bus.
