Electric Mobility

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 fleet?


SOLUTIONSplus Course 1 - Electric mobility: More than just electrifying cars

Description Target audience
The first course of the SOLUTIONSplus global learning programme on electric mobility aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to electric mobility planning and implementation in local contexts.

The course is primarily designed for city and regional authorities, but can provide a solid knowledge base for any stakeholder involved or interested in electric mobility. 

Charging infrastructure for electric vehicles: What kind? Where? How?

Description Target audience
Many 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.

How to encourage increased electric mobility in the logistics sector

Description Target audience
Electric 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

Description Target audience
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.

Condensed roadmap for the Transport White Paper on Urban Mobility
Description Target audience
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.
