CIVITAS ECCENTRIC Webinar: How cities can promote electrification and electric mobility


Smart Mobility

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 electromobility 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 will look into the question of how cities can develop and implement a city wide public charging in collaboration with charging and utility providers, as well as how cities can promote electrification working with their own fleets.

The City of Stockholm will present their work on charging infrastructure and discuss their master plan for developing EV-charging in Stockholm. The City of Turku will illustrate how to work with electrification of the municipality fleet. Concluding, we will discuss high level lessons learned, the role cities can take in wide-scale electrification and we will share recommendations for mobility experts.
