Kick-off in Hanover.

Stationary energy storage system consisting of used eCITARO batteries goes into operation.
The life cycle of a drive battery does not necessarily end after having been used in a vehicle. The GUW+ pilot project at Üstra Hannoversche Verkehrsbetriebe AG, to which Daimler Buses is a partner, demonstrates this. In this project, which was announced in 2021, battery systems from Mercedes-Benz eCitaro city buses are given a second life as stationary energy storage units. This innovative energy storage solution was developed and implemented by Mercedes-Benz Energy GmbH. The storage system at Üstra’s rectifier substation, which has now been put into operation in Hanover, provides a shared, simultaneous energy supply for the public transport operator's eCitaro electric buses and light rail.

And Daimler Buses was just as dazzling: we showcased the eCitaro fuel cell, the first ever Mercedes-Benz electric bus with a fuel cell. But there was much more to discover...
