A UK consortium led by Wrightbus and including Queen’s University Belfast, Revolve Technologies and Ricardo is to carry out research that aims to further reduce power consumption and CO2 emissions in hybrid diesel-electric buses.

The three-year TERS (Thermal Energy Recovery Systems) project aims to reduce vehicle CO2 emissions by 10 per cent through the use of waste-heat recovery systems while also reducing the average power consumption of air-conditioning systems by half, further improving fuel consumption.
