The overall aim of ELIPTIC was to develop new concepts and business cases to optimise existing electric infrastructure and rolling stock use, saving both money and energy. ELIPTIC advocates electrification of the public transport sector and helps to develop political support for the electrification of public transport across Europe.

With a strong focus on end users, ELIPTIC analysed 20 use cases within the four thematic clusters. The project supported the Europe-wide uptake and exploitation of results by developing strategies and guidelines, decision making support tools (e.g. option generator) and policy recommendations for implementation schemes for upgrading and/or regenerating electric public transport systems.

Partners and other cities have benefited from ELIPTIC's stakeholder involvement and user forum approach. ELIPTIC addresses the challenge of “transforming the use of conventionally fuelled vehicles in urban areas” by focusing on increasing the capacity of electric public transport, reducing the need for individual travel in urban areas and by expanding electric intermodal options (e.g. linking e-cars charging to tram infrastructure) for long-distance commuters.

The project strengthens the role of electric public transport, leading to both a significant reduction in fossil fuel consumption and to an improvement in air quality through reduced local emissions.
