After the Green-eBus project, an ADEME-labeled project for the transformation of a diesel city bus to a battery-powered electric motor propulsion, Greenmot goes on with its research and design work for an intercity bus retrofit kit in which the engine will be converted from diesel to electric generated by a hydrogen fuel cell. This energy is perfectly suited to the needs of medium-distance journeys, particularly regional or interregional.

The company will thus offer transformation kits with autonomy varying from 300 to 500km of autonomy depending on the use case. The kits will be installed in series from 2024, intended for professional customers.

Greenmot is a France-based test centre and design office for all types of motorised vehicles, from automobiles to special military vehicles.

Greenmot at the Zero Emission Bus Conference

The context being ideal, Greenmot participates and sponsors the Zero Emission Bus Conference, a 2 days of technical conferences on November 17 and 18, 2021. This important sector event, organized by Element Energy and Hydrogen Europe will be held at the Maison de la Chimie in Paris. Laurent Chognard, business developer, will participate in the Conference ” Drivetrain performance: unlocking the benefits of new ZEBs, retrofit and second-hand in European markets ” alongside other players in the sector to present user costs (TCO) and performance comparisons

More broadly, ZEB 2021 will feature manufacturers of passenger transport vehicles, political decision-makers and European operators who will outline their ambitions to support the transition to a zero-emission society.
