Irizar and Iberdrola collaborate to electrify bus transport [free access]

July 21, 2021

Irizar, a bus manufacturer, and Iberdrola, an energy supplier, have signed a cooperation agreement to collaborate for the electrification of urban bus fleets, development of smart-charging infrastructure, as well as the recycling and reuse of electric bus batteries.

 

The agreement comprises R&D programmes, a joint analysis of urban bus fleet electrification projects, demonstration projects, and bilateral projects for developing new technologies applicable to the acceleration of electrification in the transport sector. The two-year agreement will also consider solutions for the decarbonisation of the manufacturing group’s network of collaborators.

 

The two companies started working together when Iberdrola was commissioned to provide the renewable energy supply at Irizar’s factories.
