E-course on energy-efficient public transport infrastructure technologies deployment


The Interreg Central Europe project EfficienCE aims at increasing energy efficiency and renewable energy usage in public transport (PT) infrastructures to reach local, regional, and EU energy targets. EfficienCE takes up the need of improving energy-efficiency of PT infrastructures to exploit the untapped potentials in this sector. Therefore, 12 partners including 7 PT authorities/ companies from 7 different Central European countries are working together on strategies for planning, financing, and deploying energy-efficient PT infrastructures and innovative energy saving technologies, and on strengthening the capacity of the PT sector by providing knowledge resources.

In this framework, the project is organising an online course on energy-efficient public transport infrastructure technologies deployment, aiming to enable public transport operators/ companies, as well as practitioners at public administrations, to learn about the concept and practical implications of different technologies. The participants are introduced to the overall topic, given examples of technologies and solutions available and tested in (Central) Europe, and will have access to specific use cases based on the evaluation of pilot actions deployed during the project on the main topics of the EfficienCE project: 1) energy efficiency for depots, 2) multipurpose PT infrastructure use & 3) energy storage in PT infrastructure.

The online course starting on 29 March 2022 and ending on 20 May 2022 is structured into three main components:

  1. State of the art and successful technologies
  2. Best practice examples inside and outside EfficienCE
  3. Use cases based on the EfficienCE pilots

Registrations open!

We kindly invite you to participate in the e-course in the period 29 March – 20 May 2022, and to participate in the kick-off of the first unit on 29 March 2022, 10:00 – 11:00 CET.
