UITP is proud to announce it has entered intoSOLUTIONSplus, a new project seeking to advanceelectrificationofurban mobility worldwide.
Followinggrowing urbanisationacross the world,electric vehiclesare often dubbed as being the answer to poor urban air quality: they are highlighted as some of the key decarbonisation solutions in theEuropean Green Dealand are supportive of theParis Agreementand theSustainable Development Goals.
Capabilities to develop policies, implement business models and operate e-mobility solutions are a vital step in the transition process towards sustainable mobility. This is exactly where SOLUTIONSplus comes in.
Joining 45 worldwide partners, this EU-funded project brings together cities, industry, research and finance partners toestablish a global platform for shared, public and commercial e-mobility solutions to kick start the transition towards low-carbon urban mobility.SOLUTIONSplus is coordinated by the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI).
… by businesses, start-ups, local and national governments and transport operators byinspiringofficials, operators, industry and businesses throughpeer-to-peer exchangeon innovative e-mobility products and services. Together with UN Environment and the International Energy Agency (IEA), SOLUTIONSplus will also work on ajoint global urban e-mobility programmethat will significantly boost replication and impact of results.
The project will conduct demonstrations in cities to test different types of innovative and integrated e-mobility solutions, will set up trainings and will develop a toolbox for e-mobility solutions. Pilots will be held in Hanoi (Vietnam), Pasig (Philippines), Lalitpur/Kathmandu (Nepal), Kigali (Rwanda), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Quito (Ecuador), Montevideo (Uruguay), Madrid (Spain) and Hamburg (Germany).
