15.30           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.
