ELIPTIC – Electrification of Public Transport in Cities – was a three-year Horizon 2020 research and innovation project, running from 2015 to 2018, and part of the CIVITAS initiative for clean urban transport. The consortium consisted of 33 partners from 8 EU countries representing various sectors such as cities, manufacturers, research institutes, associations and public transport companies.
ELIPTIC evaluated various approaches and technologies for electrifying public transport and demonstrated that the further take-up of electric vehicles can be done in a cost-efficient way by integrating multi-purpose charging into existing public transport infrastructures. ELIPTIC received funding of €5.9 million through which it was able to realise 20 different use cases in the form of both practical operation and feasibility studies.
The goal of the ELIPTIC policy recommendations is to share the insights our use cases have made with regard to the electrification of bus fleets in their cities and how existing electric public transport systems can be used for the charging of other electric vehicles.
