Integrating charging infrastructure and public transport planning

Full electric and hybrid electric busses are currently being tested in many European cities. Few examples, however, exists of large-scale introduction of such busses. To be able to move from smaller demonstration projects to large-scale applications, the planning of charging infrastructure needs to be integrated into the public transport planning. This is required in order to fully take advantage of electric busses while having a cost efficient deployment of charging infrastructure.

This project encourages and facilitates the introduction of rechargeable vehicles in public transport by contributing to the development of integrated planning methods for the public transport system and its charging infrastructure. Networks and timetables should be planned in a way that provides an effective usage of the charging infrastructure and also enables usage of electric power for as long distances as possible or in priority areas. The project demonstrates how integrated planning of charging infrastructure, networks and timetables can be done, and the effects of integrated planning are evaluated.
