ELIPTIC webinar series

Braking energy recovery technologies are an opportunity to increase the energy efficiency in public transport systems like metro, light rail/tram or trolleybus networks and will be presented during this first webinar of the ELIPTIC project (link is external). Different technologies in this field are part of the work in the use cases of Pillar B “Innovative energy storage systems to increase operational efficiency” of the ELIPTIC project. After a short introduction into the work of the ELIPTIC project and the objectives and use cases related to the webinar’s topic, the presenters from the public transport companies STIB (Brussels, Belgium) and PKT (Gdynia, Poland) will show braking energy recovery technologies for metro (and how to transfer the approach to light rail) and trolleybus systems. They will explain their development background from the European projects Ticket to Kyoto (NWE Interreg) and CIVITAS-DYN@MO, and show experiences with their systems in operation as well as results in terms of increased operational efficiency through these systems. Furthermore, they will present how their current braking energy recovery approaches and technologies will be developed further in the ELIPTIC use cases.

TIDE: Non-motorised transport

Even if the route from home to destination is safe and comfortable for cycling, if the bike parking is insufficient or unsafe, people will be discouraged from cycling for transportation. This course will look at different types of bike parking and what types are appropriate for different locations. It will also address the value to businesses and to employers of providing bike parking for their customers and employees.

CIVITAS thematic course

The delivery of goods makes up a significant share of traffic in European cities and is a major contributor to deteriorating air quality, rising carbon emissions and congestion. CIVITAS cities encourage the use of cleaner freight vehicles and are developing solutions to better coordinate freight logistics. More efficient freight deliveries can reduce congestion, lower emissions and free up space for sustainable modes.

CIVITAS

By making better use of data, urban traffic and transport can be improved and made more efficient and sustainable, and cities can become more liveable and attractive. There is evidence from different countries showing that the provision of open data delivers benefits: to travellers and users by improving their journey experience and saving them time, and to transport organizations and authorities by enabling them to operate more efficiently while demonstrating openness and transparency to those who - directly or indirectly - fund them. To encourage cities and (public transport) companies to open their data more than they do now and to show how this works in practice, in this webinar some stories were shared. In the webinar some nice and diverse examples were shown of how data can be translated into useful information that can then be used to enable certain services and measures. Claudio Mantero (from Horarios do Funchal) showed the example of sharing public transport data and displaying departure times in Funchal (Madeira) and Tommaso Bonino (from Bologna, SRW - Reti e Mobilità) showed the example of what can be done with cycling data (plan locations of 1,000 bicycle shelters!) and public transport data. Aviad Heilbrun (from the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo) and Torbjørn Barslett (from Ruter As in Oslo) presented how they collect and present open data (technical platform) and what is done with it. In Tel Aviv-Yafo two hackathons were organized (in 2014 and 2016) and this helped in building a community around open data and generating a lot of ideas on what to do with the data.

SUTP Webinar

Number plate restrictions are an easy, low-cost, short-term measure that has been adopted in various cities around the world with the aim to reduce congestion and air pollution. However, their medium and long-term impacts have been widely debated. The webinar focused on the rationale of plate restrictions, the types of restrictions that have been adopted, and the difficulty to know the actual effects of these measures. Carlosfelipe Pardo (Despacio) provided insights on the experience of Bogotá and other cities worldwide.

CH4LLENGE

Monitoring and evaluation activities deliver data about the progress of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) development process and the impact of policy measures. This course explores how to determine the context for monitoring and evaluation and develop a Monitoring and Evaluation Plan. It looks at selecting indicators and targets and provides insights into evaluating planning processes using, for example, the SUMP Self-Assessment Scheme. By the end of this course, you will have gained comprehensive knowledge about how to establish clear and effective monitoring and evaluation procedures.

CH4LLENGE

Development of effective measures to tackle identified transport and mobility objectives is vital for successful sustainable urban mobility planning. Yet there are a range of challenges to well-informed development of packages of measures. Cities can limit themselves to pre-conceived solutions, may focus on supply-side rather than demand-side polices, and can be unaware of the potential of novel solutions. This course explores measure selection in SUMP process, examining how measures and measure packages can be identified and critically evaluated as a response to objectives, problems, and as part of a process of moving towards more sustainable mobility practices.

CH4LLENGE

Involving stakeholders and the public is a precondition for sustainable urban mobility and supports the development of a more effective, efficient and accepted Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). This course gives an overview about the relevance of participation in SUMP preparation and provides insights into managing participatory transport planning, identifying stakeholders and working with interested parties, the public and the media. It explores how to select appropriate involvement formats and looks at the practical work of conducting a participation process. By the end of this course, you will have gained comprehensive knowledge about how to successfully engage citizens and stakeholders in SUMP development.

CH4LLENGE

Institutional cooperation comprises collaboration and joint working within and across organisations in order to develop and implement a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). Institutional relationships are various and thus cooperation must be understood as occurring within networks of organisations. Such cooperation may require the sharing of objectives, knowledge, resources, powers or consent between several actors. This course intends to explain how to build a pragmatic cooperation with actors and how to identify ideas, principles and policies that help to deliver a SUMP that is accepted and effective in practical and financial terms.
