This chapter focuses on a solar- and wind-powered charging station for electric buses, which is equipped with a set of backup batteries that serve as energy storage. Additional batteries are used to compensate for the variable and stochastic energy generation of the climate-driven solar and wind sources. The research presented here focuses on analysing the charging station's reliability in terms of covering observed load, its economic performance, impact on the power system and the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (in CO2 equivalent). The results show that such a station can not only minimise electric buses' impact on the environment and ensure satisfactory reliability levels but also be a profitable investment.
