  1. 1. Guide to energy and publicly-accessible transport in rural areas
  2. 2. REPUTE RENEWABLE ENERGY IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT ENTERPRISE Introduction Approach Results Conclusions
  3. 3. GUIDE TO ENERGY AND PUBLICLY-ACCESSIBLE TRANSPORT IN RURAL AREAS MOTIVATION The ‘Atlantic Arc Regions’ of Europe all share similar experiences of  geographical difficulties remote populations large distances between centres of population problems keeping up with advances in technology inter-modality issues The REPUTE Guide explores how the regions could learn from each other keep up with the pace of development within larger, more populated, regions provides examples of innovative large-and small-scale transport schemes from different regions introduces the REPUTE pilot projects.

  7. 7. GUIDE TO ENERGY AND PUBLICLY-ACCESSIBLE TRANSPORT IN RURAL AREAS PROBLEM The transport sector is the fastest growing source of GHG emissions. People in rural areas typically travel 50% further than those in urban areas-most by bus or car. SOLUTION Locally generated energy Initiatives to connect people to rural public transport hubs through community- run schemes Shared ownership of transport resources and bespoke on-demand services. This is known as Total Transport. Transfer of best practice from cities DRIVERS FOR CHANGE These include community engagement, fund-raising at a local level, local energy initiatives and policies The introduction of cost-effective, energy-saving, technologies.

  15. 15. REGIONAL MOBILITY CHALLENGES AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS Issues People living in rural areas travel ~50% further than their city counterparts and a large proportion of their total mileage is made by car or bus Lack of access to public transport hubs Lack of integration of different modes of transport Lack of coherent local policy Lack of real-time information Total Transport solutions integrate transport services provided by different agencies and operators, eg combining a local bus service with hospital transport

  21. 21. TALYBONT ZERO ENERGY CARBON CAR SHARE SCHEME (2011-) Talybont is a small rural village in South Wales Talybont on Usk Energy Ltd runs two vehicles: • An electric van powered by the group’s solar panels • A car powered by bio-diesel The vehicles are funded by the Talybont Energy and Sustainable Development Fund. Talybont Energy earns ~30,000 Euro/year from its community hydro-electric scheme The project has twin environmental aims of replacing fossil fuel miles with zero carbon miles and encouraging less cars on the road through car sharing.
  22. 22. ECO TRAVEL NETWORK EV RENTAL, BRECON BEACONS NATIONAL PARK, SOUTH WALES (2012-) The Eco Travel Network runs an EV rental and charging network for tourists to the Brecon Beacons national park. 7 Renault Twizys with 40 charging points installed throughout the national park at cafes, hotels and shops. The Eco Travel Network is run as a not-for-profit organisation. They obtained a 30,000 Euro Start up Grant from the Brecon Beacons National Park Sustainable Development Fund. This was used to cover set up costs and subsidise the first set of vehicles. All costs in future will be covered by members.
  23. 23. CASE STUDY -BIOFUEL Biofuels derived from waste represent a promising alternative to fossil fuels Liquid biofuels (ethanol and biodiesel) already meet around 3% of global transport demand Gaseous biofuels (biomethane or biogas) – second generation biofuels - meet a much smaller demand currently, but they can also be used in road transport applications
  24. 24. GENeco Bio-Bus, Bristol-Bath, UK Bath-Bristol Airport commuter route Biomethane, produced at the Bristol Sewage Works at Avonmouth, converts food waste and human waste into biomethane by the anaerobic digestion route The 40-seater bus has a range of 300 km on a full tank which is equivalent to the waste per year from five people. These buses produce approximately 30% less greenhouse gases than their diesel equivalents and improve the air quality in city centres Lille has over 10 years’ experience of using biofuels in buses. There are ~130 biogas buses currently.

  28. 28. SUMMARY Future transport will use more energy derived from natural resources – solar, wind, tidal, hydro, biomass, etc. Renewable energy sources can be owned, operated and controlled in rural areas through community actions and local partnerships. The energy generated can be used directly or indirectly in local transport Rural public transport hubs need to be built and connected by express services to major destinations Total transport solutions are required for rural communities where pooling of resources and voluntary actions can provide a service Financing mechanisms, such as crowd-funding and local share schemes, can integrate community energy schemes with transport solutions, providing a strong sense of local involvement
