CIVITAS Workshop on Electromobility in cities: In cooperation with the CIVITAS thematic group "Clean fuels and vehicles"

16 February 2016 - 17 February 2016 Hotel Hopper, Brüsseler Str. 26, Cologne - Germany

This workshop will provide the latest update on the innovative solutions implemented in the CIVITAS DYN@MO and CIVITAS 2MOVE2 projects (

The Workshop will be in Cologne on 16 and 17 of February in Cologne, at the Hotel Hopper et cetera, Brüsseler Str. 26, Germany. The workshop will start on Tuesday 16th February (14h00) and will end on Wednesday 17th February at 13h00).

On the first day, the workshop will focus on Innovative strategies & co-operation concepts and detail electromobility & planning strategies as well as the role of utiliy companies for effective electromobility concepts, with various presentations from front runners cities on electromobility.

On the second day, participants will analyse public transport tendancies in electromobility in cities. The focus will be on electrifying the fleet, with concrete presentations from front runners' cities in terms of e-buses deployment. In addition, a special session on the 17th will be dedicated to the ELIPTIC and ZeEUS Projects, with presentations of the latest outputs from cities.

ELIPTIC looks at three thematic pillars:

  • Integration of ebuses into existing electric PT infrastructure, upgrading trolleybus networks with battery buses.
  • Upgrading and/or regenerating electric public transport systems (flywheel, reversible substations).
  • Multi-purpose use of electric public transport infrastructure: safe (re)charging of non-public transport vehicles (pedelecs, electric cars/ taxis, utility trucks).

Zero Emission Urban Bus System Project (ZeEUS) aims to:

  • Extend fully-electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network composed of high capacity buses
  • Evaluate the economic, environmental and societal feasibility of electric urban bus systems through live operational scenarios across Europe
  • Facilitate the market uptake of electric buses in Europe with dedicated support tools and actions
  • Support decision-makers with guidelines and tools on "if", "how" and "when" to introduce electric buses
