Energy Efficiency

In the development of the Eco-City, the strategic objective of the project is to promote environmentally sustainable transport modes and transport design in the urban development to encourage public transport and non-motorized transport modes, and to promote replication of these approaches in the country and region. The global environmental objective of the project is to promote sustainable transport development mode in Tianjin Eco-City, so that they may reduce the greenhouse gas emission in comparison to the ordinary travel patterns. The research objects of the project mainly include: Design a comprehensive public transport plan for Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City so as to achieve the key green transport performance targets; Ensure that green transport account for 90% of the internal travel volume by 2020; Provide an urban transport system which is comprehensive, fully integrated and highly accessible by the communities; meet the strategic demand for other overall land use and transport.

Our consulting team performed the following tasks:

(i)Review and gap analysis: (a) identified transport demand, (b) confirmed service standards and public transport technologies, (c) completed preparation of a comprehensive infrastructure development plan for hierarchical public transport modes and services to SSTEC in 2025, (d) traffic system planning and concept design;
(ii)Prepared detailed public transport network and incremental service delivery plan including short-term implementation of bus services: (a) public transport service design, (b) recommended public transport implementation plan, (c) prepared a short-term bus service implementation package;
(iii)Public transport feasibility study and concept design: (a) assessed existing/expected future conditions in the selected corridor, (b) public transport service and operation plan, (c) developed concept designs for typical elements of the selected public transport mode, (d) prepared concept designs for selected public transport route, (e) cost estimations, (f) prepared updated economic and financial analyses, (g) assessed the travel proportion borne by public transport;
(iv)Institutional settings: (a) reviewed requirements and challenges, (b) defined key functions and institutional options, (c) established initial preferred institutional option, (d) institutional development of public transport service provision.
