The UK e-Bus Summit on 10 November will showcase best practice examples of electric bus and infrastructure deployment in the UK alongside an introduction to the variety of demonstration projects being undertaken across 12 European cities, including London.

eLIPTIC aims to accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles in the public transport sector by demonstrating the business case for using existing infrastructure assets to support the charging of electric buses and other city EVs such as taxis.
