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.
E-mobility is a topic high on UITP’s agenda, as confirmed by our participation in initiatives such as theASSURED projectand theClean Bus Europe Platform.
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).
