Case Study: End-to-End Bus Fleet Electrification for Tootbus London

The Tootbus electrification project illustrates how to design, build and operate a new electric bus fleet.  Tootbus appointed VEV to develop its fleet electrification plan for its London operations at the power-constrained depot in Wandsworth, London.  The goal was to develop a cost-effective, future-proof infrastructure solution to meet Tootbus’ decarbonisation mission while maintaining the resilient and reliable bus service.  Find out how these goals were met with renewable power, charging infrastructure, solar power generation and smart energy management.
