On 29th October, MEISTER will organise and chair the workshop “Sustainable mobility: e-mobility” during the Sustainable Places 2020 conference, which will take place 27-30 October in a digital format. The Horizon 2020 projects GreenCharge, UserChi and eCharge4Drivers, and the University of the Peloponnese will also participate in this session.
The objective of this workshop is to present and discuss different digital tools, services, and approaches to boost smart electric mobility in cities from different European projects. Those will showcase how they are working to cover the EU demands and scale their solutions.
This workshop will present how three major barriers for the deployment of electric vehicles in the EU – the high cost of vehicles, the low level of consumer acceptance, and the lack of recharging stations – can be pulled down. Designing, validating, and promoting new approaches and solutions to make it more attractive for operators to install charging Electric Vehicle Supply Equipments and for potential customers to use this infrastructure.
The MEISTER, UserChi and Green Charge projects are part of the CIVITAS initiative, a network of cities for cities dedicated to cleaner, better transport in Europe and beyond. Since it was launched by the European Commission in 2002, the CIVITAS Initiative has tested and implemented over 800 measures and urban transport solutions as part of demonstration projects in more than 80 Living Lab cities Europe-wide.
Sustainable Places prides itself on being an ideal platform for the dissemination of research, the conduct of workshops, EU project clustering, and networking between stakeholders of all types. SP2020 will be held over four days in a digital event format. Between the opening and closing keynote sessions, parallel technical sessions and project-organized workshops will be held on conference topic areas.
