Electromobility is a central building block of an environmentally sustainable reshaping of mobility in Germany. Aside from the proliferation of private electric vehicles this calls for the development of »e-mobility« services as well as the integration of these different modes of transport into existing mobility options and strategies.
Until now the exploration of technical framework conditions for electromobility (vehicle technology, battery technology, etc.) was the focus. Concrete implementation of measures to promote »e-mobility« and their integration in existing, regional and local authority plans and planning processes was hardly examined. In addition, the development of different modes of transport options is in its infancy in Germany. The »eMoVe« project monitors the introduction of electromobility from an integrated perspective with concrete implementation options in cities and regions. The aim of the project is the preparation of a comprehensive spread of electromobility through instrumental, conceptual, strategic and functional integration of electromobility into municipal mobility.
- Instrumentally, the integration of electromobility is gaining importance in existing planning processes and procedures. This applies to regional concepts (e.g. networking with rail local public transport or clean air planning) as well as local authority ones (e.g. transport development plan, local transport plan).
- Conceptually, the lines of development of individual mobility services so far are to be combined to form a single source electromobile mobility association. The aim here is to develop structures, business models and processes for an electromobile mobility association.
- Strategically, the integration of electric vehicles in important mobility operator vehicle fleets is to be promoted. The goal of the project is the conception of fleet strategies for the introduction of electric vehicles for reference users.
- Functionally, connecting e-mobility and public transport through common access points will be pursued. The goal is the development of »e-mobility« stations linking to rail and bus stop points.
