On 20 October, the MEISTER project will host the workshop "Testing innovative business models in electro-mobility in cities: experiences in a zero-emission transport system from European and CIVITAS projects MEISTER and GreenCharge" at the CIVITAS Forum 2021.
The event aims at showing innovative business models and solutions for citizens, cities, operators and service providers, which will reduce costs for charging infrastructure deployment and facilitate the large-scale deployment of Electric Vehicles in Europe.
This event will be a unique opportunity to share the results from the three project pilot sites:
Málaga explores and tests the so-called "E-Carsharing in Municipal Fleet". The pilot strengthens the e-mobility aspects in the smart city context and the city Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP), with special focus on collaborative models with suitable shared electric vehicles (EVs).
The first users are 38 employees of the Malaga City Council. More than 78’3 gCO2/km are expected to be saved per use.
Berlin tests two business models. The "E-Carsharing as a Housing Service" provides tenants with e-smart mobility services (parking, charging, sharing). Also, the "Smart Park & Charge" aims together with the Neighbourhood app to supply an intelligent charging infrastructure solution, to increase efficiency, utilisation and ease of use of e-mobility.
Stockholm tests "Delivery of home care services with EVs". The pilot focuses on gathering user experiences from driving and charging as well as the overall benefits and challenges for fleet managers.
While GreenCharge, as guest a project, will present its results of their three pilot sites:
Barcelona pilot focuses particularly on L-category Electric Vehicles (LEVs). The pilot aims to foster the development of new mobility services in the form of an e-scooter sharing fleet.
Bremen pilotfocuses on combining the promotion of e-cars with car sharing, and the use of stationary batteries to balance peak demand from charging stations.
Oslo pilot focuses on providing cost efficient home charging facilities for inhabitants living in blocks of flats with limitations in the local grid.
