Optimising existing electric infrastructure and rolling stock in order to reduce costs and energy consumption
ELIPTIC aimed to develop new use concepts and business cases in order to optimise existing electric infrastructure and rolling stock, saving both money and energy. The project aimed to strengthen the role of electric public transport, leading to reduced fossil fuel consumption and improved air quality.
To achieve this goal, ELIPTIC analysed 23 use cases within 11 cities (Barcelona, Bremen, Brussels, Eberswalde, Gdynia, Lanciano, Leipzig, London, Oberhausen, Szeged, Warsaw) and in three thematic pillars. The project aimed to support the uptake and exploitation of results by developing guidelines and tools for upgrading and regenerating electric public transport systems. ELIPTIC also advocated for an electric public transport sector at the political level and helps develop political support for the electrification of public transport across Europe. With a strong focus on end users, ELIPTIC use case analyses focused on three thematic pillars:
ELIPTIC was coordinated by the City of Bremen.
