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.
