Multipurpose usage of public transport infrastructure
Time: 10 - 13
How can different vehicle types and actors use public transport charging infrastructure efficiently? How can green and locally produced energy be fed into the grid? How can this be planned for? And what can we learn from current innovative research projects about this fascinating topic? The event will dive deep into planning, implementation and research related with piloting and testing solutions for multimodal and multifunctional charging bus stations and their integration with the existing urban transport network.
The Municipality and University of Maribor and Piedmont Region will speak about their local and regional approaches to planning, while the public transport operator Turin (GTT) presents its pathway towards implementing a multifunctional network. The University of Gdansk presents experiences how to make a trolleybus grid green, and TU Delft shows simulation results for multipurpose use of the trolleybus network in Arnhem including an outlook on integration of local renewable energy production. The event is completed with a presentation by the e-lobster project by University of Birmingham on how to use traction power supplies to charge electric vehicles.
The event is a joint effort of the Interreg EfficienCE and e-SMART projects. Climate Alliance is part of the e-SMART consortium. The project is promoting e-Mobility Smart Grid solutions for passengers and the last mile freight transport in the Alpine Space.
