Advanced Energy Seeks SOI for Hybrid School Bus Pilot Fleet.

Raleigh, NC-based Advanced Energy recently announced it is seeking statements of interest (SOI) to begin the production of a 20-vehicle hybrid electric school bus (HESB) pilot fleet.

According to Advanced Energy, the HESB project aims to commercialize HESBs in the school bus market in order to help cut fuel consumption and lower operation and maintenance costs for school districts requiring emission and fuel consumption reductions.

"Hybrid electric buses ultimately can help the [U.S.] meet increasingly strict air emissions standards of the future, provide a healthier environment for our citizens and reduce our dependency on foreign energy," said Advanced Energy vice president John Morrison. "Adapting hybrid technology to school buses, however, requires market intervention, which is what this project aims to do."
