E-MOB - Integrated measures to improve electric mobility in European regions:
Electromobility has great potential to improve our environment. Cars, trains and airplanes account for a quarter of global energy consumption and roughly the same proportion of emissions. This is a heavy burden - but also a unique opportunity to limit our impact on the climate. The nine partners in the E-MOB project represent 8 European regions at different stages of the development of electric mobility, but all share the view that electric mobility represents the future of mobility: a clean, quiet, advanced technology.
E-MOB stands for integrated measures to improve electromobility in European regions and aims to improve electromobility solutions in regional passenger transport systems through coordinated policy learning and planning. As an ambitious goal, the partners aim to influence a total of more than EUR 26 million in structural and other funds through eight policy instruments to be revised in a series of peer reviews and learning conferences. Actors with regional relevance will be involved throughout the process and will be involved in the overall interregional learning and action plan process. This coordinated intra-regional learning will help to plan and implement concrete measures and projects in the field of electromobility and bring tangible results to the participating regions.
The policy instrument relevant for Vorarlberg is the Electric Mobility Strategy Vorarlberg, which will be revised from 2020. The Research Centre Energy therefore works closely with the Department of Energy and Climate Protection of the State of Vorarlberg.
The project with a total budget of 1.535.195 € is supported by the EU within the framework of Interreg Europe with 1.304.916 €. The share of the funding for the FH Vorarlberg amounts to € 191.001.
The project duration is planned for the period 08/2019 to 07/2023.
