Join us for another webinar from our series on smart city solutions on Tuesday 20 October from 11:00 to 12:15:
Sharing Cities’ Smart City Solutions – Webinar series: E-mobility
The series will present the smart cities measures that have been implemented in lighthouse cities of Lisbon, London and Milan as part of the Sharing Cities project.
This webinar on e-mobility will explore different schemes of electric vehicles sharing and the implementation of e-logistics. Then, some tools for replication, scale-up and implementation in other cities will be presented.
What does e-mobility cover?
- Electric vehicles (EV) sharing schemes: it is a model of car rental thanks to which people can rent an electric car for short periods of time. They are often managed by mobility sharing service providers. From the municipalities’ perspective, EV sharing is an instrument which provides the local community with an alternative mobility service for their daily or occasional commuting, reducing the number of private vehicles in the city.
- E-logistics: cities are hubs for the global goods distribution networks and an estimated one half of all road freight mobility takes place in cities. The road congestion and pollution this entails are expected to grow because of the increase of delivery via e-commerce. Electric logistics (e-logistics) is a way to cope with this issue. E-logistics is an electric fleet of vehicles that transport goods within cities. This can be made up of electric cars or vans, autonomous vehicles or electric cargo bikes.
After the presentations, we invite all participants to join the discussion, ask questions and share their experiences. We are looking forward to an engaging exchange!
The webinar will be accessible online; practical details on how to join the webinar will be sent in due time to all members that registered for the event.
