Background:

This webinar will set out the next steps we have in mind to foster the deployment of Clean Buses.  As part of this – we will provide you during this webinar with an overview of what financing options are available at European and national level. Also you will hear first-hand experiences of cities and regions that have deployed and secured financing for clean buses. The timing of this seminar is chosen to increase awareness of our activities ahead of the CIVITAS Forum in Portugal on 27-29 September and DG MOVE expert meetings in the autumn. With this webinar we hope to give you some insights on how to get more clean buses deployed. We hope this will help you to get further involved  & (continue to) participate in  the European Clean Bus deployment Initiative. In future we plan to give you more practical tools and solutions.
