- Expand technical knowledge on the operation and maintenance of electric buses
- Facilitate the integration of electric buses into transit systems
GSEP’s online technical training on the operation and maintenance of electric buses, held from October 26 to 30, was attended by 271 participants across the world. Participants who succeeded in completing the course’s examinations have been awarded certificates of achievement.
The training was offered by international experts on electric mobility, in collaboration with the Ministry of Energy and Mines of Peru, Enel X and Hydro-Québec. Offered both in Spanish and English, it covered electric transportation technology and its advantages; electric bus operation and maintenance; charging infrastructure installation and operation; safety and performance; as well as learnings from succcessful electric mobility experiences in Latin America.
GSEP believes that transport electrification is a key component of achieving a cleaner energy future. This training is part of a pilot project implemented by GSEP to integrate an electric bus to the transport system in Lima and to compile data that the Peruvian government will use to implement large-scale electrification across the country’s public transit systems.
