TIDE: Electric mobility

Many cities are feeling pressure these days to move toward electric mobility, but there are still many unknowns. While there is no blueprint for installing EV charging infrastructure, this course will provide some basic information about different types of charging technologies and guidelines for their. It will also offer an overview on quantifying the infrastructure needed, business models, partners and stakeholders, political instruments and financial incentives.

TIDE: Electric mobility

Electric vehicles in the logistics sector are a matter for the private sector. But does this mean there is nothing a city can do to encourage electric delivery vehicles? This course addresses the question of how cities can work with the private sector and what role the public sector can/should play in encouraging and supporting further electrification in the logistics sector.

CIVITAS

The Bus system is a key element of every public transport network all over the world. By choosing a cleaner bus option local decision makers can contribute to the decarbonisation of the urban transport and improvement of the air quality in their cities. In order to reduce emissions from buses it is possible to act on the improvement of the vehicle technology, act on powertrain or consider alternative fuels to be used to propel the vehicle. The webinar presented and discussed the new CIVITAS Policy Note “Smart choices for cities - Clean buses for your city” as well as the report “Clean Buses - Experiences with Fuel and Technology Options” released by the European project Clean Fleets. Apart for presenting technology and fuel options, the webinar highlighted some practical city experiences in running and operating clean buses: together with the cities participating in the Clean Fleets project, also the CIVITAS demonstrative city Gdynia presented its experience in the trolleybus system. The webinar addressed in particular the following questions: (1) Why do municipalities need to consider cleaner options for buses? (2) What are the options available and which energy source/technology should be chosen? (3) What are the costs, emissions and other advantages/disadvantages of the different options? (4) Short term, medium term and long-term investment decisions

GEF-SUTP Training Modules on Sustainable Urban Transport Planning (2013)

The Government of India (GoI) initiated the Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP) with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), UNDP, and the World Bank. The objective of the SUTP is to facilitate the provision of urban transport infrastructure and services in a manner that is consistent with the objectives of the National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP), which is a shift towards public transport and other sustainable modes of travel. One major component of this project involves building capacity amongst practitioners in the field of urban transport in order to strengthen policy making, decision-making, project implementation and management, operations and project evaluation skills at the central, state and city levels. The capacity building component of GEF - SUTP aims to establish the needed capacity for regular skill development of practitioners, public officials, other public functionaries, and urban professionals in the field of urban transport to be able to find solutions to these problems and apply the skills to planning. Accordingly, a set of 10 subject modules, each for a group of topics on subjects associated with sustainable urban transport planning, were developed by EMBARQ India, GIZ-SUTP and UMTC. These 10 modules are structured in such a way so as to provide the necessary background together with case studies and relevant learning’s for India that will provide a base to build capacity amongst the practitioners, city officials, etc.
