From Husum to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, from Bottrop to Cottbus: Providing information on the prospects and everyday applicability of CO2-free mobility, the Electric Mobility Roadshow of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) stopped off in over 20 towns and municipalities across Germany.

Electric, clean and quiet – citizens are learning about the contribution electric mobility can make to climate protection, air pollution control, noise protection and new transport concepts, irrespective of whether they are battery-, hydrogen- or fuel cell-operated. For private individuals, business people and municipal representatives, information is available on funding opportunities for vehicles and charging infrastructure. People have been able to experience dynamic, clean driving in test drives at numerous event locations, supported by local initiatives.

In several locations staff members from NOW GmbH National Organisation Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology presented the Electric Mobility starter set information pack to local authority representatives. The set comprises practical recommendations for action for establishing and developing electric mobility and is an expression of appreciation to committed municipalities.

Anne Laudien, Communication Manager at NOW GmbH, tour organisers, was delighted at the success of the Germany tour: “We are experiencing an ever-growing interest in electric mobility: both in regard to very practical questions about the type of charging plug, but also in terms of dealing with important questions about the overall ecobalance. All over Germany there is a shift in thinking to find the first projects or already substantiated experiences.”
