SusStations – Sustainable Stations - Interreg IVB project A €10m European project with ERDF of €4m Lancashire is Lead Partner Partners in the Netherlands, Germany, France and Northern Ireland Sharing best practice and lessons learnt Think European – act locally Envireo Cluster – sharing ideas to a wider audience Interreg annual events
SusStation Assessment Tool What is a “sustainable station”? How to measure? Aims for holistic sustainability approach Questions in 5 above categories (energy, health etc) Quantified answers for energy & water – Related to EU TSI or NL regulations or industry standards Qualitative answers e.g. health/quality of use – see user manual with examples, as follows Results are from 1-10 (least to most sustainable) with 6 as the benchmark
General data Module with: Name of the station. Assessment of 1or 2 variants. Type of project: in use, new build, refurbishment. Characteristics of the station. m 2 of the domains, number of passengers/day. These figures are used in the calculations and the questionnaire. Assesment Tool sustainability railway stations 6
Questionnaire: example Energy 4 subtheme’s: - energy consumption in general - use of sustainable energy (solar, wind, geothermal) - lighting and transfer: describes type of lamps, use of daylight, type of elavators, etc. - heating and cooling: insulation, demand, efficiency. Assesment Tool sustainability railway stations 7 The other themes work the same way
Results and labeling A Sustainability label: General score. Score per theme. Advice on improvements per variant. Comparison of variants. Instrument that helps the architect in finding sustainable solutions in a broader perspective. Makes it possible for the sponsor to set ambitions. A module gives a overview of the score and advice on improvements Assesment Tool sustainability railway stations 8
Use of the tool In the Netherlands approximately 60 existing stations are assessed by ProRail and NS. In Holland the tool is used in a number of projects, new build and refurbishment, but ProRail and NS are still in a learning mode. Assesment Tool sustainability railway stations 9

Antrim Integrated Bus & Rail Centre Under construction Jan 2012 – mid 2013
Antrim Integrated Bus & Rail Centre Sensitive restoration of historic building “first class” modern facilities Passive sustainable design e.g. insulation, natural ventilation, triple glazing Active sustainable technology – PV panels 15% reduction in energy vis a vis building regs Reclaimed, low carbon materials – standards?
Station Green – Horrem, Cologne Demolition under way, completion end 2013
Station Green – Horrem, Cologne Part of DB EcoProgramm DB’s 1st reduced carbon station Passenger comfort alongside sustainability Comprehensive approach – ecology, economy & sociology Low carbon materials Aim for carbon neutral building operation (but depends on off site measures)
Utrecht Centraal Renewable Energy Construction began Jan 2011, completion on track for June 2012
Utrecht Centraal Renewable Energy PVs to provide 30% of station electricity Also small contribution to ATES for direct heating/cooling energy (station & city hall) Contributory to CU2030 area redevelopment – The definitive design for the station area will be tested against the statutory environmental regulations through an independent Environmental Effect Report
