TROLLEY Summer University "ebus - the smart way!", 23 to 26 October 2012, Leipzig, Germany

The TROLLEY Summer University “ebus - the smart way!” took place in Leipzig from 23 to 26 October. During the Summer University, young researchers and professionals presented their research results and TROLLEY partners showed their project results. The Summer University offered these young researchers and professionals the possibility of discussing research and project results in the field of electric bus systems in an international environment. The TROLLEY Summer University started with the 3rd International Trolleybus Conference and the TROLLEY Transferability Conference in Leipzig, giving comprehensive input to all participants for further discussions in a more informal atmosphere. Please find all presentations of the Summer University in the following. Furthermore, video recordings of the sessions on energy storage systems and diesel bus to trolleybus conversion can be seen
