Alternative Power In-Depth Focus 2018
With cities across the world setting ambitious targets to operate emissions-free transport within the next two decades, alternative fuels are changing the way operators and authorities move passengers from A to B. Find out what makes China the world’s e-bus leader, why public procurement needs to go green, and how sustainable BRT has the potential to define efficient and green mass transit.
In this issue:
- HelsingborgsExpressen: the 100 per cent green BRT line
From June 2019, the people of Helsingborg will see a brand new bus line open with the introduction of a new BRT concept. The first of three BRT/BHLS lines to rollout over a 10-year period, Carl Björklund, a Transport Analyst at Skånetrafiken, explains how the line will transform the city bus network into a modern public transport system.
- Achieving sustainable mobility through strategic use of procurement
Ashleigh McLennan, Sustainable Procurement and Economy Officer at ICLEI – the global network of cities, towns and regions committed to building a sustainable future – explains how public procurement can be a strategic tool in the transition to a zero-emissions transport sector, and highlights the frontrunners ICLEI recognises to be accelerating change through their procurement processes.
- Key lessons from China’s e-bus revolution
China, specifically Shenzhen, has made great progress in implementing a zero-emissions fleet. Now, says Paul Bromley,
the rest of the world should use this success, and lessons learnt 100 years ago, as the template to join the electric vehicle revolution.
