“Public transport, and its image, could be vastly improved with fleets of ultra-clean and silent buses. Clean, silent service and delivery vehicles could transform the quality of urban life”  Siim Kallas, 18/09/2014,The future of electromobility in Europe.

Security of energy supply as well as reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission is currently high on the European policy agenda. Therefore, in any sector great support is given to strategies aimed at relieving the pressure on the supply side, namely through reduction of energy consumption, increase of energy efficiency, and diversification of the energy mix towards renewables.

The aim of the 5th Florence Urban Transport Forum is to look at energy efficiency in urban public transport, and see what are the obstacles and incentives to gradually phase out of conventionally fuelled vehicles from the urban environment. Following the usual format of the Florence School of Regulation, we aim at offering a platform to senior stakeholders from regulators, politics, operators, municipalities, authorities, associations to discuss with prominent academics and to take stock of topics relevant to urban transport regulation and policies. Four panels will focus on how the resource efficiency goal applies to urban public transport, the impact of technology, the influence of the private operators and their interaction with the public sector that is managing the tendering procedures, and the role of local governance and citizens.  Isabelle Maes (DG MOVE, Clean Transport and Sustainable Urban Mobility) will discuss the topic with relevant stakeholders representing associations ( UITP ), city administrations (Stockholm , Copenhagen , Munich ), operators ( EJRC and Car Postal ) as well as renowkned researchers, such as Claus Seibt (Programme Director Sustainable Transport and Mobility Services at the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy) and Raimondo Orsini (Director of the Sustainable Development Foundation).
