Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, I guess a fleet of ULR vehicles would use a depot too, and a ULR vehicle is more energy efficient than the same vehicle on tyres because of rolling resistance.

But I guess my key question is does it make more 'energy sense' to:

(a)burn carbon, generating heat and electricity (when maybe there is no use for heat) to produce electricity and distribute it to trams; or

(b)power a ULR tram look-alike directly with carbon?
