Targeting sustainable mobility In 2015, the vast majority of Parisian buses are still running on diesel, despite the City of Paris having committed to an ambitious Energy Climate Plan. But by 2025, all of the Greater Paris network’s 4,500 buses will be clean, and four out of five of them will be electric. RATP, the Paris transit authority, and EDF have formed a three-year partnership to take up this challenge.
A battery of tests Tests and trials will take place at EDF’s Electric Equipment Laboratory. They will concentrate on different power trains, batteries, charging systems at each mobility stage, and the impact on the electricity grid. The key focus will be user satisfaction, safety and the environment.
