Anouk Hol

Aerodynamics and Energy Specialist VDL Enabling Transport Solutions BV

Anouk Hol (28) joined VDL in 2015 after finishing her master in mechanical engineering at the University of Twente (NL). Currently she is the team lead of the Energy- and thermal management team. VDL presented its first e-bus in 2013 at the UITP Geneva. After that full scale implementation of electric busses happened very fast. Today VDL sold and exploit more >800 e-buses and their e-buses drove already approximately 50 million kilometers. To keep up with the rapidly growing market, VDL is investing a lot in model development of the bus and its components. These models are used to map the energy flows in the vehicle and estimate the range of their buses. Furthermore the models are used to help selecting components, suppliers, development of new control strategies and to do vehicle energy management to improve the bus driving range.
