Urban transport is responsible for about a quarter of CO2 emissions from transport. The gradual phasing out of ‘conventionally-fuelled’ vehicles from the urban environment is a major contribution to significant reduction of oil dependence, greenhouse gas emissions and local air and noise pollution. Fully Electric Vehicles (FEV), for public and private transport, can contribute significantly to the lowering of the current pollution levels.
On June 25th ITE hosted the final Management Workshop of the MOBINCITY project in its brand new premises in Valencia. There the MOBINCITY consortium presented the final project status and the results of the system integration and field tests from the three pilot cities Rome, Ljubljana and Valencia to a broad public. About 50 confirmed international guests visited the event. Beneath the presentation of the detailed project results the event was also a great opportunity to meet experts and to explore possible collaborations beyond the FP7 funding of MOBINCITY.
On 10th of February the MOBINCITY consortium had a coordination meeting in Zagreb as a guest of Croatian Telecom. Major topic of this meeting were the upcoming pilot tests in Italy, Slovenia and Spain. Within the last period of the MOBINICTY project now the results will be tested under real conditions.
