Innovation Week
Santiago de Chile

With a team of 15 employees based in Chile during late 2017 and early 2018 (whilst still under the brand Tower Transit Chile), significant efforts were made by our team to share with the Government and the wider bus industry our knowledge of the impacts, benefits and challenges associated with the adoption of low emission technology. With the Government keen to introduce a proportion of fully electric vehicles to Santiago, we hosted a week-long series of events aimed at educating the industry on the challenges and obstacles that the pursuit of low emission technology involves. With over eight years of experience operating the world’s second largest fleet of Hydrogen buses, in addition to several extensive electric vehicle trials, our in-house low emissions expert hosted:

With London’s bus industry initially struggling to make the transition between Diesel Euro IV and V buses in 2010 to diesel hybrids, our role during Innovation Week was to inform the wider industry in Chile, including our competitors, of the challenges to be faced when transitioning from Diesel IV vehicles to fully electric buses. These events, hosted in various establishments for different target audiences proved to be a huge success, attracting hundreds of attendees including the Minister for Energy and his top team. Our emissions expert was even invited to become the Honorary International Professor for the Universidad de Chile Centre of Energy’s new Masters degree in Electromobility.
