All public busses on the island will run on renewable energy by the summer 2012.
Samso Energy Academy is working with Samsø Municipality and Midttrafik on changeing the public diesel busses on the island to run on either electricity or gas.
The public tender on the new renewable energy busses is nearing completion, but there is missing a few pieces in the final Puzzle before we have new carbon neutral busses.
Samsø Energy Academy together with Samso Municipality and Midttrafik have applied for a public grant to cover the added costs in the change to carbon neutral busses in the Traffic Authority’s pool for trials of energy efficient transport solutions.
Samso will be told in December if we get the grant, just before the task is sent out to tender.
Samso Energy Academy estimates that the chances are good.
With the “fossil-free busses” in place summer 2012. Samso has taken the first concrete step towards our goal of becoming a 100% fossil free island in 2030.
