Scenarios and prospects for electrification of public road transport


November 16, 2021

Increasing the efficiency of the local public transport system and improving air quality are two strategic objectives of the development policies identified as priorities at a European and national level, and in major metropolitan areas worldwide. On November 16, SDA Bocconi will host a webinar on the research, “Scenarios and perspectives of electrification of public road transport and Total Cost and Revenues of Ownership (TCRO): an innovative benchmark analysis”, discussing its application in Italy. The research was carried out by a team of the Centre for research in Geography, Resources, Environment, Energy and Networks (GREEN) of Bocconi University, coordinated by Oliviero Baccelli with researchers Claudio Brenna, Gabriele Grea and Antonio Sileo and by Enel Foundation, that contributed with Managing Director Carlo Papa and Mirko Armiento. Ignazio Cordella, Enel X’s Global eCity Business Strategy Manager also contributed.

Starting from an analysis of the policy context and the market context, an innovative methodology has been developed to compare different management models and power supply alternatives for public road transport in order to estimate the "Total costs and revenues of ownership" (TCRO) for scenarios to 2021, 2025 and 2030.

The study is part of a research report series that comprises Italy as first case study and then it was extended to several other countries, including Spain, Chile, Brazil, United States, Colombia, Mexico, Australia, Uruguay, Peru and the United Kingdom. The series aims to be a tool for decision-making by local public transport (LPT) companies when choosing the motorization of the bus fleet to be used in an urban context.
