Zingbus partners Sheru to enhance E-Mobility For Intercity Commutes
An intercity bus service provider Zingbus, on Monday signed a strategic partnership with Sheru—a battery management and energy storage solutions provide, to scale e-mobility for intercity commutes.
According to the partnership, Zingbus Zingbus plans to add 2,200 electric buses and 4,000 electric cars to its fleet over the next five years. It will utilise ScaleBat, Sheru’s battery management solution to ensure efficient battery management.
The solution is said to offer advanced features for optimising battery performance, reducing operational costs, and extending battery life, thereby enabling Zingbus to maximise the potential of electric vehicles.
In addition, Zingbus will leverage Sheru’s NetBat platform to monetise idle time by connecting electric vehicles to Sheru’s energy storage network. The cumulative battery capacity of Zingbus’s electric fleet is estimated to be around 1 GWh. By utilising NetBat, Zingbus says it will offer energy storage services during periods of low vehicle utilisation, unlocking new revenue streams and contributing to efficient management of energy infrastructure.
Prashant Kumar, Co-Founder and CEO, Zingbus said, “With their expertise in battery management and energy storage solutions, we are confident that we can drive innovation together and create a greener future for the transportation industry.”
By scaling its electric fleet, Zingbus aims to offset half a million tons of carbon emissions annually, which is equivalent to planting more than 22,000 trees.
Nakul Mehan, CTO, Sheru said, “Highways form 60 per cent of emissions from transportation in India. Zingbus has immense potential to lead sustainability for highways, being the most trusted brand in intercity commuting.”
