Green from door to door: the Green Mobility Chain is being forged. Under the leadership of Saxony-Anhalt’s public transport authority Nahverkehrsservice Sachsen-Anhalt GmbH (NASA), eight innovative companies have come together to turn the vision of climate friendly door-to-door transportation into reality in every city, its environs and regional surroundings via a Green Mobility Chain encompassing: electric vehicles, energy, information technology as well as the intermodal networking of public transport and car sharing.
The guiding principal is the attainment of more energy efficient, lower emission and affordable mobility in cities and their surroundings in which the aspects of home, work and leisure intersect. Besides electromobility, public transportation will play a key role.
The project is a part of the Electromobility Model Regions programme. It also pins great importance on the joint Initiative of the states of Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia for the application of an Electromobility Showcase Mitteldeutschland (Central Germany). The lead partner of the Green Mobility Chain is NASA. The software companies HaCon and TAF mobile are responsible for the technical implementation. The Green Mobility Chain is demonstrated in the region by the Mittelthüringen (central Thuringia) transport association and Stadtwerke Halle (public utilities company) in Halle/Saale. Research looking into the integration of electromobility and living is being undertaken by ibh bauwerke and Thüringer Innovationszentrum Mobilität in Erfurt as well as by the Fraunhofer-Institut für Werkstoffmechanik IWM (Fraunhofer Institute for Material Mechanics) in Halle/Saale. The project is being coordinated by the IT consultancy of the mobility management company BLIC GmbH.
The project is also funded and supported by the Ministry for Regional Development and Transport (MLV — Ministerium für Landesentwicklung und Verkehr) and the Ministry of Economics and Science (MMW — Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft) in Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia’s Ministry of Building, Regional Development and Transport (TMBLV — Thüringer Ministerium für Bau, Landesentwicklung und Verkehr).
