1. Energy efficiency in buildings and infrastructure

T2K partners identified the need to focus on energy efficiency as a key priority for reducing energy consumption in buildings and for reducing related GHG emissions. Public transport buildings and infrastructure in use today are often outdated and were designed before energy efficiency was a key concern. The Ticket to Kyoto project focused on simple ways of improving the energy use by implementing smart actions that deliver great energy savings and a large carbon reduction.

This chapter gives an overview of the possible energy-saving measures that can be implemented in metro and light-rail stations, office buildings, depots and in transport-related infrastructure. Each measure was evaluated in terms of its suitability for transport companies.
