Paper in journal Energy Policy: On the road to fossil-free public transport

The f3 project Fuel options for public bus fleets in Sweden finished last year and  KTH researchers Maria Xylia and Semida Silveira have now published a paper with the results from the project. The paper is published in the highly-ranked journal of Energy Policy (Elsevier).

Some findings that the authors highlight in the paper are:

  • The penetration of renewables in Swedish public bus fleets reached ca. 60% in 2014.
  • Public bus emissions per vehicle-km have decreased by 43% between 2007 and 2014.

  • Efforts are needed to improve energy efficiency in bus transport.

  • Electricity is likely to receive increased attention according to expert survey.
