The project "Improvement of ambient air quality through the establishment of environmentally friendly public electric transport in Pernik" includes the purchase of 5 electric buses with charging stations among other things. Through the implementation of the project, emissions of PM10 and NOx from public transport will be reduced by 0.08 t per year. Thus, by improving air quality the project seeks to create more efficient and environmentally friendly public transport with less energy consumption and opportunities for alternative modes of transport; contribution to the achievement of the Specific objective "Reduction of atmospheric air pollution by reducing the amounts of PM10/NOx" under Priority Axis 5 of OPE 2014-2020. The project builds on the project "Integrated urban transport of the town of Pernik" under OP ‘Regional Development’ 2014-2020.
Total Project cost: EUR 3 673 617; Grant: EUR: 3 067 547; Own funding: EUR 606 070; Percentage of EU co-financing: 85.00 %
By design, the project can be considered a good practice since it is in line with the overall decarburization targets in the field of transport. What is more, it has clear key performance indicators, which are often missing in similar projects.
