ACTUATE - Advanced Training and Education for Safe Eco-driving of Clean Vehicles

The EU funded ACTUATE project (May 2012 – January 2015), which had the aim to optimize driving performance for reduced energy consumption of new and innovative clean vehicles, has now finished. This website will stay operational and you can download a range of training materials, guidelines, promotional campaign elements and informative material about “Advanced Training and Education for Safe Eco-driving of Clean Vehicles” in the “Outputs” section. There you’ll also find the lessons learnt and final brochures!

All these outputs and results of the project shall help public transport providers to train their own drivers in safe eco-driving of clean vehicles in a tried and tested manner.
For general information on the project and/or questions about ACTUATE, please contact the project coordinator via the “Contact” section.

Kick Off Event in June, Cologne

Eco-driving means optimising driving performance for a safer, more economical and environmentally-friendly driving. The ACTUATE project aims to help optimising the driving performance for vehicles in the public transport sector that are considered clean (such as hybrid buses, trams, trolleybuses with or without supercaps). ACTUATE offically started on 1 May 2012 and runs for 30 months spending...[more]


ACTUATE - Advanced Training and Education for Safe Eco-driving of Clean Vehicles

Intelligent Energy Europe STEER Programme Studies show that eco-driving has the potential to make bus and tram fleets more energy efficient. The ACTUATE project will therefore develop and apply advanced training and education services for eco-driving of clean vehicles in the electric public transport sector. By supporting the introduction of safe eco-driving trainings, ACTUATE further exploits...[more]
