The 3rd ELIPTIC webinar took place on 9 April 2018


Experiences from European cities in using electric public transport infrastructure for the charging of other e-vehicles

In the 3rd and final ELIPTIC webinar, which took place on 9 April 2018 from 11:00 to 12:30 CET, we presented some of the lessons learnt within the project. After a short introduction into the work of the ELIPTIC project and the use cases related to the webinar’s topic (Henning Günter, Rupprecht Consult), the presenters showed different aspects related to the multi-purpose use of electric public transport infrastructure. This included direct insights from two ELIPTIC cities covering both technical aspects in the provision of metro infrastructure for the charging of TfL’s service vehicles (David Talbot, TfL) and planning aspects that need to be taken into consideration when using Barcelona’s metro and tram network for the charging of e-cars (Oscar Puigdollers, B:SM). A final presentation gave insight into the findings looking at e-mobility from an energy law perspective highlighting legal and regulatory challenges that were encountered within the project (Hartwig von Bredow, von Bredow Valentin Herz).  

ELIPTIC’s use cases have shown how existing electric public transport infrastructure (trolleybus, metro and tram sub-stations) could be used as charging infrastructure for other electric vehicles such as e-buses, pedelecs, e-cars/ taxis, e-vans and e-utility trucks. For the safe operation of this multi-purpose infrastructure, different approaches were made use of taking into account infrastructure and vehicle types as well as local context conditions, such as energy capacities of the grid, the institutional set-up and regulatory frameworks.
