Toronto Transit Commission
The objective of this project is to develop an intelligent electric bus smart charging platform that enables transit authorities to maximize the number of deployed electric buses at respective garage facilities while minimizing electrical service upgrade costs.
The project will result in an energy management system that will optimize energy flows from the electricity grid to TTC’s energy assets including bus depots, vehicle charging infrastructure, battery storage and electric buses. The integrated system will reduce TTC’s overall energy costs.
This project is expected to deliver a system to manage peak demand, reduce GHG emissions and overall infrastructure costs while optimizing electric bus utilization.
The technology uptake from the project can apply to other transportation sector applications where fleet or other vehicles need to cost effectively transition from internal combustion engine vehicles to battery electric vehicles.
