Smart public transportation helps achieve zero emissions

Public transportation that runs on clean energy is how smart cities can reap the benefits of decarbonization

The need to decarbonize, the smart way

Most of the energy consumed in cities today comes from fossil fuel combustion, which is used for heating and cooling buildings, to power appliances, and for transportation. However, technologies backed by renewables are available today for the smart electrification of cities — and their public transportation systems. Intelligent transportation systems for smart cities are a key stepping stone to decarbonization and sustainability.

Smart transportation for zero carbon cities

The electrification of mobility has brought many technologies with it: energy storage systems such as batteries, networked smart charging stations, multifunctional urban furniture that can also “fill up” e-vehicles, and digital management platforms to run all these elements in an integrated way. Cities that invest in this type of smart infrastructure will have the capability to become sustainable — and also cleaner, more efficient and more beautiful places to live.

Zero-emissions mobility for sustainable cities

Enel X is firmly committed to developing and building smart city transportation solutions for municipalities that want to transition to renewables, cut air pollution, and work towards zero carbon goals. There are several smart city transportation examples showing how Enel X has helped European and Latin American cities electrify their public bus fleets and build the digitalized infrastructure to run them. As explained in a recent World Economic Forum (WEF) report, beating climate change will take an integrated approach —  and intelligent transportation systems for smart cities is a key part of that strategy.
