Dear members,

once again I would like to draw your attention to our work on electromobility. We encourage you to answer our consultation on electromobility if you haven't yet done so nor taken part to last week's web conference. Read more in this InfoPolis.

To read the full InfoPolis articles, do not forget to log in to the members area at: www.polisnetwork.eu! When you are logged in as a member, you will have access to a considerably enhanced database of documents, events and news compared to the public website.

New documents available online include information on the electromobility strategy in Berlin, the EC's background paper for the STTP roadmap on electrification and updated information on recommended hotels in Brussels. Contact us if you do not know your login details.

Yours sincerely,
Sylvain Haon
