Shaping the Future of Battery Electric Bus Microgrids

Microgrids are another piece to the puzzle of transitioning to ZEB, but how should we approach them? What is their impact on the overall project? Phil Jonat's presentation will explore the “why” behind microgrids for transit agencies as we transition to battery electric buses

Please note, this session is interactive; anonymous audience participation should be anticipated.

This session will run 25 minutes inclusive of Q&A.

This session is on the Scenic Route - Morning.
