Electrification of municipal and private fleets is a topic of key importance as cities across Europe are looking to reduce their carbon and pollutant emissions. Municipalities have a range of options to influence and impact this transition.
During the CIVITAS ECCENTRIC project, the cities of Madrid, Stockholm, Munich, and Turku worked on measures to promote electro-mobility among municipal employees, business and private users.
With the project coming to an end, the cities have learned valuable lessons on how to best go about this. This webinar looked into the question of how cities can develop and implement city-wide public charging in collaboration with charging and utility providers, as well as how cities can promote electrification working with their own fleets.
In this webinar, the City of Stockholm presents their work on charging infrastructure and discusses their master plan for developing EV-charging in Stockholm. The City of Turku illustrates how to achieve the electrification of the municipality fleet.
Concluding, the webinar includes discussion on high-level lessons learned and the role cities can take in wide-scale electrification. The speakers also share their recommendations for mobility experts.
