ACTUATE Project (EU)
As studies show, safe eco-driving has the potential to make bus and tram fleets more energy-efficient. The ACTUATE-project will therefore develop and apply advanced training and education services for safe ecodriving of clean vehicles in the electric public transport sector.
By supporting the introduction of safe eco-driving trainings, ACTUATE further exploits the additional energy-saving potential of clean vehicles such as trams, hybrid buses, trolleybuses or e-buses which will further promote their take-up. ACTUATE´s trainings will complement existing eco-driving forces that primarily focus on diesel-engine vehicles.
The project lays a particular focus on the drivers as they are the pivotal element for better driving performance and energy saving. Encouragement campaigns will ensure that the drivers apply the instructions provided in the trainings also in the long term.
