Emission-free rail transport with overhead line and battery: BEMU project presents final report
BEMU stands for Battery Electrical Multiple Unit. From 2016 to 2023, the BEMU research consortium, comprised of Alstom Transportation Germany GmbH and the Technical University of Berlin, worked on converting a conventional electric multiple unit train into a battery multiple unit train and testing it in everyday operation.
BMDV funds 13 new e-vehicles for Pankow district office in Berlin
Daniela Kluckert, Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV), has presented a funding notification in the amount of 225,737.10 euros to Pankow’s District Mayor Dr Cordelia Koch.

17 electric-powered articulated buses for Berlin: E-MetroBus project presents results
In the E-MetroBus project, the Berlin public transport company Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG), together with the Technical University of Berlin and the Reiner Lemoine Institute, have integrated 17 articulated buses with battery-electric drive into their fleet.
Innovative charging technology for the transport transition: ‘eMobiGrid’ project relies on local direct current grids
The spread of electric mobility poses new challenges for infrastructure: stations for recharging vehicle batteries must be optimally integrated into the existing local stationary energy grid. An overarching charging concept is needed for different types of vehicles.
