Making connections between sustainable energy, mobility, environment and climate in Bologna

CIVITAS Initiative

The regional council for Emilia Romagna recently hosted a meeting “Energy and sustainability: Environment, Climate and Mobility” in Bologna. Dedicated to making connections between sustainable mobility, energy and environmental protection, the meeting attended by more than 100 people, provided an opportunity to explore the role of sustainable mobility in combating air pollution and climate change.

Situated deep within the Po valley, the Emilia-Romagna region suffers from a very high degree of air pollution. Enhancing electromobility forms a key part of the PRIT 2010-2020, a regional transport tool put forward by the Emilia Romagna region.The meeting represented an opportunity to illustrate the new regional integrated LTP fare system STIMER and the strategy of Emilia Romagna to strategically support electromobility.Speaking at the event, Director General of Mobility and Transport Infrastructure Department in Emilia-Romagna, Paolo Ferrecchi illustrated the new regional integrated LTP fare system STIMER, due to be completed by 2013 in the entire Emilia-Romagna territory.Under the STIMER and MIMOSA framework, the annual integrated bus and train season ticket ‘MI MUOVO’ will eventually become an all encompassing mobility card, linking up train, bus LPT, bike sharing, car sharing, car pooling, taxi, park and ride parking areas and electric recharge device services.Head of Emilia-Romagna Regional Urban Mobility and LPT (buses), Fabio Formentin spoke of working with co-funded European projects, CIVITAS MIMOSA, LIFE-plus - MHYBUS, POWER - ITACA focusing on three specific mobility measures: GIM on Mobility/ITS, MI MUOVO-Bike & Ecodrive.As Regional Councillor for Mobility and Transport in Emilia Romagna, Alfredo Peri spoke of the important role of political support for electromobility. The result: a high diffusion of electric vehicles. Emilia Romagna now boasts 200 of the 400 electric vehicles circulating Italy.All presentations are downloadable fromhere
