International conference on electrified public transport

21-22 May 2014, Gothenburg, Sweden

E-Mobility partner Lindholmen Science Park welcomes you to the international conference Electrified Public Transport, held directly at the site of Lindholmen Science Park, Gothenburg, Sweden on May 21-22, 2014. The organizers bring together representatives from public transport authorities (PTAs), traffic operators, manufacturers and the academia to exchange general knowledge regarding the potential of electrification of public transport; share best practice/experiences from real cases where electric buses and/or ferries have been implemented; discuss expectations and raise common issues/hurdles - how can PTAs navigate during this technology shift; and connect representatives and stakeholders from European cities that either have experience from the field or plan to adopt the new technology. An accompanying exhibition showcases city projects, manufactures and new research.

Participation in the conference is free of charge. The E-mobility NSR project has been co-financed by Region Västra Götaland.
