The EfficienCE Toolkit is an online repository housing tools and resources that enable planning of energy-efficient public transport infrastructure and was developed as a key deliverable of EfficienCE, an Interreg Central Europe project. All tools and resources used were selected with care by a round of experts within the EfficienCE project consortium.
