€95K urban public transport energy efficiency competition launched in Berlin
Date:7/3/2014

ssions in the European Union originate from transport, with 84 per cent of that coming from road transport alone. More than 10 per cent of all CO2 emissions in the EU come from road traffic in urban areas.

BVG, Berlin's main public transport company, moves over 900 million customers per year with its U-Bahn underground railway, tram, bus and ferry networks. Added together, the BVG's vehicles circle the globe around 5.800 times a year, the equivalent of 18 circumnavigations of the earth every day.

Potential emission reductions could come from:

    Improving the efficiency of vehicles through changes in design, materials or technology

    Increasing energy efficiency by synergies of different technologies

    Promoting non-fuel technologies

    Improving operating practices of vehicles
