A sustainable transport solution for a Slovenia town
Matjaž Knez, Ali Naci Celik, Tariq Muneer, 2014, original scientific article

Abstract: Authorities in Slovenia and other EU member states are confronted with problems of city transportation. Fossil-fuel-based transport poses two chief problems—local and global pollution, and dwindling supplies and ever-increasing costs. An elegant solution is to gradually replace the present automobile fleet with electric vehicles (EVs). This article explores the economics and practical viability of the provision of solar electricity for the charging of EVs by installation of economical available Photovoltaic modules. A steep decline in the module, inverter and installation costs is reported herein. Present estimates indicate that for the prevailing solar climate of Celje—a medium-sized Slovenian town—the cost would be only 2 euros and 11 cents per kWh of generated solar electricity.
Keywords: electric vehicles, energy sustainability, Slovenia, solar photovoltaic, sustainable transport, urban transportation

Solar energised transport solution and customer preferences and opinions about alternative fuel vehicles
Matjaž Knez, Marjan Sternad, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: Authorities in Slovenia and other EU member states are confronted with problems of city transportation. Fossil-fuel based transport poses two chief problems - local and global pollution, and dwindling supplies and ever increasing costs. An elegant solution is to gradually replace the present automobile fleet with low emission vehicles. This article first explores the economics and practical viability of the provision of solar electricity for the charging of electric vehicles by installation of economical available PV modules and secondly the customer preferences and opinions about alternative low emission vehicles. Present estimates indicate that for the prevailing solar climate of Celje - a medium-sized Slovenian town - the cost would be only 2.11 EUR cents/kWh of generated solar electricity. Other results have also revealed that the most relevant factor for purchasing low emission vehicle is total vehicle price.

Supplying restaurants in a closed city centre with sustainable transport methods
Matic Gole, 2013, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Supply of goods in the city centres can be quite a task, especially if we want that it's based on a lot of modern technologies and point of view's, such as environment, safety regulations and so on. In our thesis, we went through the theoretical part, which was the basis for the solution for supplying city centre of Ljubljana. We discovered that Ljubljana has a lot of vehicles entering a pedestrian area, so we made a proposition of investment into a sustainable transport methods such as electrical or solar driven vehicles. If we include a good timetable into the equation, this means that from this, all stakeholders can benefit and there can be substantial improvements from all mentioned point of view's.

Improving city transport with the objective to reduce CO2 emissions
Marjan Sternad, Matjaž Knez, Bojan Rosi, 2010, original scientific article

Abstract: In the past few years traffic volume is increasing. As a consequence, negative external traffic effects are increasing too, in particular CO2 emissions, which result in global warming and climate changes. CO2 emissions, a by-product of vehicles are much higher in cities due to traffic density. According to European standards, Celje is not a large city; however its traffic poses a great problem that the city authorities will soon be confronted with. This paper focuses on the city centre of Celje, where traffic flow was measured and CO2 emissions calculated. Using alternative solutions the aim was to present impacts on the environment in the municipality of Celje in an event of changed traffic regimes. In order to reach the guidelines of sustainable transport development in the municipality of Celje, in the future, different measures for reducing negative external effects of city transport will have to be put into force, for only this way the quality of city life can be improved and compatibility of environmental, economic and social objectives provided.
