Abstract [en]

It is a current objective in many cities to reduce GHG emissions and energy consumption in their public transit fleets. Specifically, the electrification of bus lines are being considered for their reduction potential and alignment with ’Smart City’ trends. This thesis aims to examine this in the context of the pub-lic bus fleets of Barcelona, Stockholm and Warsaw. Past and present fleet data was compiled, along with future plans in order to form the basis for a Well-to-Wheel analysis for each city’s fleet. The trend suggests that the carbon intensity of the energy mix is a critical component in determining just how effective bus fleet electrifcation is in reducing emissions and consumption. There is also evidence of future emissions being pushed upstream, showing local reductions but lacking in overall reductions. Municipalities often have direct influence over their public transit system, and hopefully the informa-tion presented in this thesis can be used to help them make more informed decisions as to what the results of their plans will be, in order to develop their cities in line with a truly smart and sustainable model.
