Insights into SORT – Standardized On-Road Test Cycles

The SORT project ('Standardised On-Road Test cycles'), an initiative of the UITP Bus Committee, first aimed at providing the bus sector with a standardised means of comparing the energy consumption of different buses. To meet the changing needs of the sector, SORT has recently expanded its scope to include electric buses. The newly branded ‘E-SORT’ has the aim to measure, in an accurate and reproducible way, the traction energy consumption and to obtain information on the Zero Emissions range of a bus.
This methodology allows bus operators to access comparative data regarding traction energy consumption (either fuel, gas or electricity) and information on the optimal daily range for electric buses. The test protocol applies to two types of buses: full electric buses and hybrid buses that can be externally re-charged (plug-in hybrid electric bus).
This session will look into the methodology developed by the SORT initiative.

Oscar Sbert Lozano, Consultant, Barcelona, Spain 

Case studies & workshops: from diesel to clean vehicles (electric, gas, hybrid)

The lion’s share of public transport buses in the world today are diesel buses. Yet cities are setting ambitious environmental targets for mobility and many operators and authorities are shifting towards zero emission vehicles. The change of technology towards electric, gas or hybrid propulsion also implies new ways of procuring: from traditional vehicle procurement towards an entire energy system procurement which includes the bus and the related infrastructure for gas (compressors…) or electric provision.
This session will combine best practice in procurement of clean buses and applied workshops.

Case studies on clean vehicles:

  • Electric buses in Nottingham by Steve Cornes, Principal Project Officer at Nottingham City Council, United Kingdom
  • Gas propulsion in Paris by François Vauxion, Bus fleet Purchase rolling stock Manager and Innovation Delegate at RATP, France and Philippe Jouette, Expert in Fuel and Depollution, RATP, France
  • Clean diesel /Hybrid propulsion in London by Arriva (tbc)
