Demystifying the operation of electric school buses
** Event in English only **
The number of electric school buses (ESBs) on the road are increasing each year, but many of the technical barriers and myths continue to delay the transition. If you're currently operating a fleet of ESBs or are considering transitioning your fleet, this webinar is for you!
From driving, repairing, charging to powering, join the Canadian Electric School Bus Alliance (CESBA) on March 20, 2023 between 11:00 am and 12:30 pm ET to learn and share about the technical logistics of operating ESB fleets.
Experts from Propulsion Québec, Highland Fleets and Dunsky Energy+Climate will share some of the key aspects to consider when transitioning to ESBs in our Canadian context.
You will learn about:
- The characteristics of electric buses and charging equipments;
- The ranging and efficiency of ESBs in various driving and weather conditions;
- The impacts of ESBs on power supply and the potential of vehicle-to-grid technology

Valérie holds a Bachelor's degree in International Development with a minor in Environmental Studies from the University of Ottawa. Through this education and her travels in developing countries, such as Tanzania where she worked as an intern with a socio-economic development organization, she has developed a keen interest in environmental and climate justice issues.
She is currently awaiting her Master's degree in Environment and Sustainable Development, with a specialization in social issues and governance, at the Université de Montréal. She first joined Équiterre in the fall of 2020 as an intern in sustainable mobility, which led her to focus on the social and environmental implications of transportation in her final master's paper and in her new position as a sustainable mobility advisor.
