The two-day long virtual partner meeting was followed by a Transnational Webinar titled "Planning for energy-efficient metro stations" on 18 May 2021. >> Read more HERE. (The link includes the presentations and the recording of the webinar as well.)
A key part of the Interreg EfficienCE project is the pilot application of novel energy saving technologies in public transport infrastructures, being "first-of-its-kind" in Central Europe ranging from renewable energy integration intro metro stations (Vienna) and trolley depots (Gdynia) to upgrade a substation for multipurpose use of existing public transport infrastructure (Maribor). The solutions will be shown through virtual site visits.
Are you currently in the process of developing a pilot measure for energy efficient PT infrastructure or adopting innovative technologies? If yes, apply now for the site visits!
The City of Gdynia and the trolleybus operator PKT have completed two EU projects by implementing and testing an innovative solution, a mobile charging station for electric cars, powered by the trolleybus network. Within the Interreg EfficienCE project an energy storage inverter has been designed and constructed by PKT, which is a device for processing excess braking energy and traction power.
The Municipality of Maribor commissioned experts from the University of Ljubljana to prepare a study about the best economic and technical solutions for the electrification of bus line no. 6 in Maribor to achieve sustainable goals and improve air quality in the city. >> Read more HERE.
