The mobility sector plays a key role in the transition toward a sustainable development, that represents the goal of the European Green Deal strategy. In contrast to other sectors, mobility seems to be lagging behind in its decarbonization process: it is the only sector that has increased its climate-altering emissions since 1990. But finally, with the new Energy and Climate Plan, and the recent proposal of a new European Law on climate, adequate macro-objectives have been set out in the EU. To reach these ambitious goals, clear tools, available options and systematic planning need to be identified, tested, and spread for replication. The decarbonization of the mobility sector, therefore, requires a deep transformation, destined to open up new competitive scenarios and business opportunities.
The objective of the event is to explore and shed lights on electromobility as a cleaner, alternative urban mobility option, able to lead the green transition of our cities in the vast Mediterranean area. The webinar will be the occasion to present the findings of a foresight analysis on connected electric vehicles: their strengths, vulnerabilities and driving trends for the upcoming future.
Expected results of the session
We will explore how cities are facing the issue deriving from the impact that an increasing number of recharging EVs can have on the energy network and how arising technologies can allow multiple actors to take advantage of energy storage opportunities.
We will discover how things are moving around the MED area: which key players are supporting the uptake of electric mobility solutions in the cities and how their role can be better framed in order to transform alternative fuel into concrete benefits for citizens.
In addition, public and private recharging options, electrification of urban PT, and e-car sharing services for public administration will also be the base for considerations to stimulate an open debate.
