Achieving a shift away from fossil-fuelled transport is a growing priority for cities. Increasing the deployment and uptake of e-mobility solutions will play a key part in achieving a number of global objectives, including the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.
SOLUTIONSplus aims to enable transformational change towards sustainable urban mobility through innovative and integrated electric mobility solutions. To deliver this objective, the project will boost the availability of electric vehicles, foster the efficiency of operations and support the integration of different types of e-mobility in large urban areas and addressing user needs and local conditions in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.
The project SOLUTIONSplus sets up a global platform for shared, public and commercial e-mobility solutions, and to kick start the transition towards low carbon urban mobility. The project encompasses city level demonstrations to test different types of innovative and integrated e-mobility solutions, complemented by a comprehensive toolbox, capacity development and replication activities.
SOLUTIONSplus will help to boost capabilities of authorities, public transport operators and entrepreneurs about innovative urban e-mobility solutions; increase the uptake of e-mobility solutions in the public and private sectors; strengthen collaboration and partnerships between business and government on e-mobility; and will contribute to global sustainability and climate goals by helping cities decarbonise their transport systems.
SOLUTIONSplus works closely with UN Environment and the International Energy Agency (IEA) on a joint global urban e-mobility programme that will significantly boost replication and impact of this Innovation Action. Demonstration actions will be launched in Hanoi (Vietnam), Pasig (Philippines), Lalitpur/Kathmandu (Nepal), Kigali (Rwanda), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Quito (Ecuador), Montevideo (Uruguay), Madrid (Spain) and Hamburg (Germany).
The project runs from March 2020 until March 2022.
