|Electric mobility has been a topic of discussion for many years, but its wide-scale implementation still presents a range of challenges. Regulatory, legal and policy aspects need to be addressed in order to make the use of electric vehicles more convenient, affordable and user-friendly as compared to conventionally-fuelled ones. In what cases is electrification best deployed? What problems can it help to solve (and which does it not)? How can existing infrastructure be exploited more efficiently to expand the network of charging stations and how can we ensure the clean provision of energy that will be needed to charge large electric fleets?|

cities feel pressure these days to move toward electric mobility, but there are
still many unknowns. While there is no blueprint for installing EV charging infrastructure,
this course will provide some basic information about different types of
charging technologies and guidelines for their implementation. It will also
offer an overview on quantifying the infrastructure needed, business models,
partners and stakeholders, political instruments and financial incentives. [TIDE, 2014]
Practitioners in local administrations across Europe with an interest in electric mobility but limited knowledge of charging technologies, business models and other aspects needed for their successful implementation
vehicles in the logistics sector are a matter for the private sector. But does
this mean there is nothing a city can do to encourage electric delivery vehicles?
This course addresses the question of how cities can work with the private
sector and what role the public sector can/should play in encouraging and
supporting further electrification in the logistics sector. [TIDE, 2014]
Practitioners in local administrations across Europe with limited knowledge or experience in area but who are interested in seeing electric vehicles used for logistics in their cities
| ||Clean Vehicles - electric vehicles for cleaner cities||Many cities strive for a cleaner vehicle fleet in the city. Electric
vehicles (EVs) are one of the favorite options, as they produce zero
exhaust emission. This e-learning course will provide an introduction to
EVs and provide guidance on how to increase the use of EVs in urban
environments. Options to foster EV deployment and examples from cities
around the world are provided. [SOLUTIONS, 2015]
||Practitioners that are in interested in increasing the use of electric vehicles in their cities and want to learn about good practice examples.

Proposed measures, actions and milestones towards the White Paper goal on urban mobility: "Halve the use of ‘conventionally fuelled’ cars in urban transport by 2030; phase them out in cities by 2050. Achieve essentially CO2-free city logistics in major urban centres by 2030."
Relevant for companies, associations, NGOs that are involved with EU policy making related to Urban Mobility.
