How can we increase the share of renewables in the transport sector, and what role can public transport play in this? That's our topic at the #EURegionsWeek. Join us at this cool online EfficienCE workshop, Oct. 12, 14:30-16:00!
In contrast to the decrease in CO2 emissions in other sectors, transport emissions have remained nearly constant or have even increased. It is widely known that a systemic transformation of the transport sector is needed by introducing policies and mechanisms that: reduce traffic, increase the share of environmentally-friendly modes of transport and improve vehicle technology. Public transport has a key role to play here by making trips more efficient and by supporting the electrification of vehicles and use of alternative fuels. However, the question how public transport can actively contribute to increasing the share of renewable energy in electric public transport operations is not widely discussed.
In this session, we will present responses to this question based on planning strategies and pilot results of the Interreg CE EfficienCE project, and provide policy recommendations.
The event is moderated by Dr. Wolfgang Backhaus (Leader Collective & Intelligent Mobility Team, Rupprecht Consult).
