Implementing Electromobility in DYN@MO cities for low carbon mobility

While recognising that electric vehicles are not the solution to solve all urban mobility problems, their introduction certainly contributes to the reduction of local emissions of air pollutants and noise. The DYN@MO cities of Aachen, Gdynia, Koprivnica and Palma are strongly committed – each city in its own way and own scale – to using a combination of instruments to speed up the wider uptake of electric vehicles among the city’s fleet and households.

Frontrunner Aachen has set ambitious goals for all transport modes in its long-term e-mobility vision and relevant stakeholders are involved through embedding the topic in its regional Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning SUMP process. In Gdynia, great achievements have been reached by the successful implementation of technical innovations in order to build up a more efficient trolleybus system. The city of Koprivnica has overcome numerous barriers by implementing an e-car charging system, an e-car sharing system and a new e-bus public transport system. The city of Palma has been demonstrating electric vehicles to its citizens by procuring different kinds of e-vehicles within their own fleets and in addition the city has introduced different kinds of incentives in order to create a favourable climate for the early adopters of electric vehicles.

This brochure describes the partner cities’ practical experiences of their implementation of electromobility in the 4 partner cities of the CIVITAS DYN@MO project.
