Abstract

The European project Ticket to Kyoto (T2K, 2010-2014) is aimed to mobilise public transport companies and their stakeholders to take action against climate change, reducing CO2 emissions in public transport.This study is part of the action plan: Investing in infrastructures to reduce CO2 emissions. The purpose of this report is to present the Multi-Criteria decision analysis of technological solutions, principally: Supercapacitors, Flywheels and Reversible Substations, aiming at recovering metro braking energy for the STIB in Brussels.
By comparing methods and sharing analyses the partners can initiate new investments to decrease the CO2 emissions of their infrastructures. The results of each partner will be useful for all partners and for the public transport sector as a whole. After the experimentation phase, the ex-post studies will help to decide which investments will be put into practice on a wider scale.
