Boosting clean e-mobility
21 October, 9.00 – 10.30
As the electrification in transport is taking off in cities and regions, we need to facilitate this development with a sustainable, long-term vision. The success of e-mobility depends on multiple factors, including the generation and provision of clean energy, wider user-acceptance and large-scale deployment of green transport. This online workshop will showcase concrete use cases and examples on how to overcome the common challenge in the electrification of urban transport through cooperation and networking of the European cities and regions, as per example of the projects Clean Mobile Energy, eCharge4Drivers, ASSURED and SOLUTIONSPlus.
