Electromobility solutions for cities and regions

Objective

The overall goal of the proposed project is to promote more sustainable transport through the development of electromobility solutions for cities and regions (ELMOS). The projects aims at delivering concepts for a better exchange of electromobility knowledge at regional and EU level, concepts for new business models and for cross-border field tests which should lead to an improved standardisation in electromobility technology and to new insights in applied science. The project therefore, contributes to enhance the regional capacities for a fostering of the sustainable transport-related economy.

Electric vehicles are regarded as one of the cleanest solutions for urban mobility. Due to daily congested roads in and around agglomerations with highly polluting stop-and-go traffic, electromobility with zero-emissions in cities will bring large and quick gains in greenhouse gas reduction and alleviation of air and noise pollution. Moreover, innovative green vehicle concepts will lead to new and sustainable mobility forms in urban mobility. Some already see a new electric mobility age to come up.

However, a fast uptake of electromobility depends on appropriate regional infrastructures, a shift in user patterns, and intelligent vehicle-use concepts embedded in the urban transport environment. The market potential is considered to be enormous.

The working scheme is designed to achieve these objectives: High-level expert round tables and international networks will gather additional expertise. Two EU-mentoring regions are involved from the start. From the sectors ICT, automotive and renewable energy, four ma-ture and two less RDCs in geographically linked regions participate. Their intended set-up of joint concepts for electromobility cross-border testing has never been done so far. As con-crete outcomes, concepts for smart specialisation, a joint agenda for future RTDI and train-ing tools will be developed and exciting dissemination actions undertaken.

Given the complexity of the electromobile technology deployment EU-wide triple helix ap-proach is a prerequisite and the support by a «Regions of Knowledge» project is thus, re-garded as a great chance.
