Project aims:
Implementation of short-term measures for energy saving in passenger transport

Application area:
Wide-spread application vehicle(s)


The project identifies short-term saving measures and implements them into the passenger fleet. Main foci are:

  • To enhance an energy saving driving style by training and sensitising the personnel
  • To make energy consumption for traction more transparent
  • To develop incentive systems

The introduction of new technologies being a mid- and long-term issue is not covered by the project.
The cost-benefit ratio of the project turned out to be good.
