The project partners want to develop, research and implement sustainable electromobility-based mobility concepts in a comprehensive feasibility study. The models for mobility, infrastructure and transport development therefore take in account two-wheelers, four-wheeled vehicles, commercial vehicles as well as electric busses for public transport.
An »electromobility world of experience«, developed jointly by research, industry and local authorities will facilitate early user acceptance through explanation and demonstration. Ten consortia from research and development, local authorities as well as industry have joined together with a total project volume of approx. 5.8 million euro.
The research project focusses on three priorities: the »Interface project« deals with the effects of electromobility on the energy grid, on the regional traffic situation and on urban infrastructures. A transferable procedure model taking the example of the Aachen region will thereby be developed, checked against the integrated research findings from the sister project of the BMWi »Smart Wheels«. In the »Two-wheeler« project, it is planned to establish a leasing system with up to 100 so-called pedelecs, and to implement the operation of battery changing systems on a rolling basis. The »User vehicle« project includes seven small electric transporters into field trial.
