The municipality of ‘s-Hertogenbosch would like to scale up the number of electric buses in the city. New chargers have also been installed with the next batch of e-buses. The municipality wondered whether this charging location would be logical and robust when on further upscaling other charging locations come in sight.
For the municipality of ‘s-Hertogenbosch we have mapped out various alternatives for charging e-buses. The alternative ‘charging plans’ are specified on the basis of our ‘three-layer model’: 1) transport demand, 2) spatial planning and 3) the electricity grid. Subsequently, the costs and qualitative implications of the charging plans were mapped, so that the alternatives can be compared.
Insight is given into the costs and advantages and disadvantages of different charging solutions and charging locations, so that substantiated and robust choices can be made regarding the charging locations for e-buses.
