SOLUTIONS

The overall mission of SOLUTIONS is to support the uptake of innovative sustainable urban mobility solutions in Europe and other regions in the world, in particular in Asia, Latin America and the Mediterranean. The project addresses urban mobility solutions around six thematic clusters: public transport, transport infrastructure, city logistics, integrated planning/SUMP, network and mobility management and clean vehicles. This course addresses the field of clean vehicles and focuses on electric vehicles in particular.

SOLUTIONS

Many cities strive for a cleaner vehicle fleet in the city. Electric vehicles (EVs) are one of the favorite options, as they produce zero exhaust emission. This e-learning course will provide an introduction to EVs and provide guidance on how to increase the use of EVs in urban environments. Options to foster EV deployment and examples from cities around the world are provided.

SOLUTIONS

This course consists of 7 units. It offers an overview of the SUMP concept and its benefits, describes the ever-growing importance of SUMPs around the world, identifies some of the challenges of integrating individual innovative mobility measures into the larger context of an SUMP and offers suggestions to overcome those challenges. By the end of the course, you will have gained comprehensive and structured knowledge about the procedural elements of the SUMP cycle.

El crecimiento rápido, no planificado y descoordinado de las ciudades ha puesto seriamente en peligro los sistemas de transporte existentes y ha incrementado significativamente el desafío de crear futuros sistemas de transporte, especialmente en los países en desarrollo. Es en los países en desarrollo, principalmente en las áreas urbanas, donde el mayor crecimiento del parque automotor se ha visto en los últimos años y se espera para los años venideros. Los impactos ambientales y sociales de estas tendencias son significativos ya que están directamente relacionados con la calidad de vida y la productividad urbana. Estos impactos incluyen congestión, consumo energético, contaminación del aire, carencias de seguridad y accidentes de tráfico. Por ende, las cuestiones de transporte urbano son de suma importancia para apoyar las exigencias de movilidad en las ciudades de rápido crecimiento y necesitan nuevas aproximaciones. Sin embargo, el transporte urbano es un asunto más político que técnico. Los aspectos técnicos son relativamente simples. Las decisiones difíciles están relacionadas con la ciudad que queremos y la manera como queremos vivir en ella. “¿Quién se va a beneficiar de los modelos adoptados? ¿Nos atrevemos a crear un modelo diferente al de las denominadas ciudades del mundo avanzado? ¿Nos atrevemos a crear un sistema de transporte que le dé prioridad a los pobres en lugar de a la minoría propietaria de automóvil particular? ¿Estamos tratando de encontrar la forma más eficiente y económica de mover a la población de la ciudad de la manera más limpia y cómoda? ¿O simplemente estamos tratando de minimizar los atascos del tráfico de las clases altas? Estas preguntas son formuladas por Enrique Peñalosa, ex-alcalde de Bogotá (Colombia), quién introdujo una serie de medidas de transporte sostenible en su ciudad. Este curso de Movilidad Urbana Sostenible en Países en Desarrollo está diseñado para proveer respuestas a las preguntas mencionadas así como soluciones y aproximaciones alternativas en planeación de transporte urbano que apunten a un sistema de transporte más sostenible en las ciudades de países en desarrollo.

The Transport White paper also contains one goal about high-speed rail: "By 2050, complete a European high-speed rail network. Triple the length of the existing high-speed rail network by 2030 and maintain a dense railway network in all Member States. By 2050 the majority of medium-distance passenger transport should go by rail." This package provides a summary of the related stakeholder-driven TRANSFORuM roadmap.

Summary of the stakeholder-driven roadmap towards the White Paper goal on Long-distance Freight: "Thirty per cent of road freight over 300 km should shift to other modes such as rail or waterborne transport by 2030, and more than 50 % by 2050, facilitated by efficient and green freight corridors. To meet this goal will also require appropriate infrastructure to be developed."

Proposed measures, actions and milestones towards the White Paper goal on urban mobility: "Halve the use of ‘conventionally fuelled’ cars in urban transport by 2030; phase them out in cities by 2050. Achieve essentially CO2-free city logistics in major urban centres by 2030."

TIDE: Cross-cutting themes

The TIDE project addresses a range of innovative measures in transport (pricing measures, non-motorised transport, data and traffic management, electric mobility, public transport organisation). This course addresses how innovations in each of these areas fit into the larger picture of sustainable urban mobility planning in your town, city or region.

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.
