Amsterdam’s electric buses may draw power from metro lines

A new study suggests a resourceful stride in Amsterdam’s quest for sustainable public transportation. It reveals that the city’s electric buses could be charged using the existing metro network, thus tackling grid congestion and energy costs concurrently.

The project is collaboration between Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS Institute), and the public transportation operator GVB. It has been running from September 2022 to March 2024. The study has found that connecting bus chargers to the Amsterdam Noord metro station’s grid could harness 17MWh per day of the metro’s braking energy.
