Abstract [en]

Stockholm is one of the core demonstration cities in the EU-funded project for zero emission urban bus systems (ZeEUS). The city has ambitious environmental plans for sustainable public transportation for the coming decades. Stockholm’s environmental objectives for 2030 are:

  • All fleets to be running on 100 % renewable fuel (already achieving in 2020)
  • Reducing 75 % of particles and NOx based on 2009
  • Reducing 35% of the energy usage per passenger/km in public transport  based on 2007

As it is apparent, Stockholm city council does not call for any particular technology in achieving the abovementioned environmental goals. Today, a large proportion of the bus fleet in Stockholm are running on either biogas or bio-diesel (Olsson, 2015; Olsson et al., 2015). However, achieving the other two set of goals i.e. reducing NOx/PMs and decreasing energy intensity rather require hybridization or electrification of the bus fleet on top of the renewable fuel changeover strategy over the long run. Thus, participation in the ZeEUS project is seen as the first step towards implementation of hybrid/electric vehicles in the city bus operations in real life conditions. According to ZeEUS website: “The demo wishes to prove that this system can be an important factor in the future public transport systems in the EU without big changes in the infrastructure. In the long term, the ZeEUS project will give important contribution to the cities strategic plans regarding electric buses and demo aims to continue operating after the project lifetime for a demo operational span of 8-12 years.” (ZeEUS, 2016)....
