Energy transition out of city centers

Oct 28th 2022





Energy transition out of city centers

Are batteries going to allow long distance operations without compromising passenger or luggage capacity? Is CNG a viable solution in the long term? What about LNG? How long should we expect before hydrogen becomes a feasible (and affordable) technology for coaches?

The framework

Intercity and long-distance bus markets are still based on diesel applications. On the other hand, things are moving fast: gas-powered buses for intercity services are taking a growing share in some markets, while pilots have been established on the way to the future development of hydrogen coaches.

Out of cities, the imperative of the commitment to energy transition goes along with uncertainty about which technological solutions to adopt in order to achieve the goal.
