South West College are pleased to announce a new Atlantic Area Programme, REPUTE (Renewable Public Transport Enterprise) in partnership with Action Renewables and other partners from France, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and the UK .
REPUTE will create an Atlantic Area framework for encouraging innovation in enterprises promoting the use of renewable energy in public transport. REPUTE builds on the work done in previous transport projects concerning energy, to support interoperability, intermodality and continuity of existing transport networks.
 
The project will establish an annual event, with supporting annual publications, for the transnational regions to engage in collaborative work on the use of renewable energy in public transport to promote interoperability and intermodality, attracting support from representatives in the sector across Europe; it will develop a process for engagement with the different ideas for the use of renewable energy in public transport to promote interoperability and intermodality generated in the Atlantic Area and across Europe; and it will undertake pilot testing in flagship concepts designed to achieve the core priority for Atlantic Area: promoting interoperability and continuity of existing transport networks, and sea/road/rail/air intermodality.
