The project aims to enhance the use of electric vehicles in city transport systems such as public sector fleets, public transport and bike sharing in order to reduce CO2 emissions and pollution. The partnership of public authorities, business, academia and NGOs explores the potential of e-bikes, e-buses, e-ferries and other e-vehicles. The project guides municipalities and transport planners and operators as well as public and private fleet managers in integrating e-mobility into urban transport strategies.

Transnational pilot actions in Hamburg, Rostock, Tartu, Riga, Helsinki, Turku, Hoje Taastrup, Gdansk and Oslo outline how different e-mobility solutions can be implemented in practice. Various theme-specific capacity building actions improve knowledge whereas facilitated exchanges enhance the target’s group capacity for informed decision-making.

In the project, IBS leads WP4 Capacity building: Fostering knowledge and experience exchange on e-mobility solutions in BSR cities and regions where its task will be developing the methodological framework for and organizing capacity building seminars together with other partners in various partner locations. IBS is also coordinating the implementation of assessment of policies on multiple levels of decision-making, prevailing technologies and future plans as well as existing and planned infrastructure. This activity will result in nine regional status-quo assessments from Finland, Estonia, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Latvia and Norway and potential analyses, each of which covers all BSR electric themes for the specific region.
