The project ECORailS - Energy efficiency and environmental criteria in the awarding of regional rail transport vehicles and services - targets on the development of a decision support for Public Transport Administrations (PTA's) issuing energy efficient and environmental friendly awarding:
- Main output will be a manual for PTA's for including energy-efficiency criteria in their awarding procedures.
- Elaboration of a set of environmental criteria for services, rolling stock, and infrastructure management, basing on results of previous technology projects
- Definition of text modules useable by PTA's to be used in EU member states
- Test of the guidelines in four regional sites (Berlin, Øresund, Brescia, Timisoara)
The ECORailS consortium consists of ten political or research organisations/institutions and 4 PTA's from six countries (Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Sweden).
