Development of a sustainable heating solution for the public electric transport cabin

Organisation: Green Liberty Website: Added: March 21, 2023
Project start date: June 01, 2019
Project end date: November 30, 2021


Project partners: Latvia's University of Life Sciences in cooperation with SIA e-Mobility and SIA Lesla Latvia. The aim of the project is to develop an ecologically sustainable heat supply solution for public electric transport using heat accumulators. The new technology will make it possible to supply public electric buses without relying on fossil fuels or increasing battery capacity. Heat energy is to be stored in a heat accumulator and restored by wireless charging during stops.

Financial data

Total investment: 759 969.07 €. EU investment: 526 698.66 € (69,3%).


This solution was intended to improve the heat extraction of the public electric bus' systems and the partner in this project considers it a success, promising to implement it in their electric minibuses. Such a solution can potentially be useful not only in road transport but also in other areas, such as the manufacturing industry.
