This week, we'll describe SEPTA's efforts to improve regional air quality by reducing criteria air pollutant emissions from its combustion engine vehicles. The result is an increasingly decentralized region where many older, transit-oriented communities have become less economically competitive.
The energy storage device would capture, store, and reuse electricity generated from braking trains, improving energy efficiency and reducing demand along this important corridor.
But advancing an agenda of economic prosperity, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship in an era of budgetary constraints and limited resources requires proactive planning and creative approaches for implementation.
DOT press release, "Clean Fuels Grant recipients were awarded competitively based on the project's ability to help communities achieve or maintain the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ozone and carbon monoxide while supporting emerging clean fuel and advanced propulsion technologies for transit buses.
Between andSEPTA reduced its energy consumption at the building by more than 2 million kilowatt hours, a single-year efficiency gain of 9.
