ZEB Committee #3 2024: Smart Energy Solutions for Transit Decarbonization

CUTRIC’s Zero Emission Bus (ZEB) Committee is a national forum for CUTRIC’s members to share up-to-date information and data related to ZEB procurements, deployments, predictive and empirical data and funding and financing options. It will ensure that Canadian transit agencies have access to the highest-quality transit-led ZEB data and ZEB procurement and deployment knowledge across Canada and the United States. This Committee reports to CUTRIC’s Board of Directors and is chaired by Erin Cooke of Winnipeg Transit.

The ZEB Committee will help Canada achieve 5,000 ZEBs by 2026 by supporting knowledge and experience sharing related to ZEB procurements and deployments.

The ZEB Committee will provide regular feedback and insight for policy leadership, as well as guidance to the federal Canada Infrastructure Bank, Federation of Canadian Municipalities, Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Canada, Ministry of Industry, Science and Innovation, Ministry of Infrastructure and Communities, Ministry of Natural Resources Canada, and Ministry of Transportation.

This session examines the pivotal role of digital and smart mobility solutions in advancing transit decarbonization. Exploring the integration of software technologies, we’ll showcase cutting-edge approaches in charging network design and power demand management, e.g. through automated charging systems and the utilization of sophisticated performance analytics. Additionally, we aim to highlight the cost savings potential in energy and operational costs achievable with optimized energy management systems and digital tools for real-time operational tracking. This ZEB session is essential for transit authorities aiming to enhance efficiency and sustainability in their operations.
