Berlin, 25.3.2019 – Electric mobility is of great importance to two thirds of municipal authorities in Germany, over 80 per cent are active, and another ten per cent are planning activities. These are the results of the latest survey of 540 German municipalities with a minimum of 5,000 residents.
The survey is a continuation of earlier city surveys by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure from 2011 and 2014, and captures the activities of municipalities in the area of electric mobility. The latest survey from the winter of 2017/2018 is the most comprehensive to date. It was coordinated by NOW GmbH and carried out by the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI in the framework of the accompanying research. The survey results are available in a publication and will assist in identifying important areas of action and determining needs in order to further develop electric mobility.
The BMVI’s accompanying research to the programme brings together and evaluates the project results from the three funding areas: Vehicle procurement, electric mobility concepts and R&D projects. Most recently “Funding electric mobility by anchoring it in municipal mobility strategies” (03/2019) was published in the framework of the “Networked mobility” accompanying research.
