The first online Peer Review in the organization of Cieza, Spain, was held on 01.07.2020 via the Zoom platform during COVID – 19 pandemic situation. In Peer Review participate partners from Hungary, Romania, Austria, France, and Croatia as well as the lead Partner.

During Peer Review, Cieza showed different examples of good practices that are related to the implementation of e-mobility solutions like e-scooters and also utility vehicles. Furthermore, during a discussion about good practice examples all partners ask several questions related to the possibilities and limitations of implementation e-mobility solutions as well as the problems related to the legislation and acceptance of the e-mobility solution in public administration and public as a whole. During the presentation, partners exchanged their experience whit implementing charging stations. All partners agree that one of the challenges is related to the costs of the investment as well as the implementation of such stations in the current public electrical grid. On the other hand, all partners agree that the E-MOB project is a great opportunity for the dissemination of the information related to the possibilities related to the using of electric vehicles.

Later in Peer Review, students from FHV under the leadership of Markus Preissinger present good practice of Vorarlberg. and also give a short history of developing of the e-mobility in Vorarlberg since 2008. Furthermore, FHV was conducted research related to electromobility in Vorarlberg. Vorarlberg is one of the most developed regions in the EU when it comes to electromobility. Result of the research shown that Vorarlberg has different kinds of incentives for using electric cars such as decreasing in tax, support in buying such vehicles, green registration plates, decreasing parking fees, etc.

The next Peer Review will be organized in France in September of 2020. The form of the Peer Review currently is unknown because of the situation related to the COVID – 19.
