This study compares the energy and global warming performances of the different powertrain technologies in the city fleet: diesel, full electric and hydrogen buses. The analysis for the energy consumptions of the buses and to produce hydrogen in Bolzano uses real world monitored data. Main findings show that compared to the traditional diesel buses, the reduction of the non-renewable primary energy demand is of 43% for electric vehicles.
