Exploring Pathways to 100% Electric School Bus Adoption
To kick off its conference Electrifying Canada’s School Bus Fleet: Challenges, Lessons Learned and Solutions, the Canadian Electric School Bus Alliance (CESBA) is inviting you to attend the launch of its Pathways for Canadian Electric School Bus Adoption research report on May 30 at 10 am ET.
In view of contributing to Canada’s target of 100% of medium- and heavy-duty vehicle sales being zero-emission vehicles by 2040, this report looks at the feasibility of achieving a fully electric Canadian school bus fleet by 2040 and whether a more ambitious target is feasible.
In a panel discussion moderated by Electric Mobility Canada, experts from Dunsky Energy+Climate and Équiterre will discuss the results of this report, focusing more specifically on the costs, the number of electric school buses (ESBs) and the federal policies that are needed to support a transition towards 100% ESBs by 2040.
The event will take place at the Maison du Développement Durable and will be broadcasted simultaneously via Zoom. The panel will be held in French (translated in English online) and followed by a bilingual question period.
