Driver Trainings in Leipzig (DE) off to a promising start

The ACTUATE partners LAB and LVB (Leipzig, Germany) have kicked-off their first training sessions for more energy-efficient and safe driving of their hybrid bus fleet. Just like in Salzburg, the partners from Leipzig have observed some promising results regarding the reduction of energy consumption.

On average a five percent reduction of Diesel fuel consumption was observed, which is in line with the expected and desired outcome. In order to simulate real-world conditions, the practical part of the training takes place on existing network routes including all scheduled stops. Overall, the trainings have been receiving very positive feedback from the participating drivers.
