ABSTRACT
Developing energy-saving solutions in vehicle construction and operation has become a priority in the automotive sector. For this reason, zero-emission and low-noise trolleybuses have started to play a significant role in urban public transportation. The paper discusses the methodology and results of energy consumption analysis for trolleybus travel on a determined route. For a given section of the route, energy recovery under braking was calculated.
