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? Join us at our webinar to understand more and discuss with the speakers on 9 December 2021 from 10:00 to 13:00!
The joint event of the Interreg Central Europe EfficienCE and Alpine Space e-SMART projects 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 open to different users. The University of Gdansk presents experiences and plans of PKT Gdynia how to make their 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. The webinar 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.
