e-Mobility Smart Grid For Passengers and Last Mile Freight Transport in the Alpine Space

Engaging with public and private stakeholders - The first Transnational Living Lab

e-SMART project partners implemented on 23rd September the first “Transnational Living Lab”, to support the development of e-mobility in public transports and in the last mile. They also created an innovative toolkit test in Alpine regions for Italy and in other European countries.

The Transnational Living Lab is a work-table to co-create new methodologies of interaction between Public Administration and private sectors to foster e-mobility. The Transnational table, met the first time under the coordination of Bruno Grandjéan by Pole Vehicul du Futur, had the duty to synthesize the outcomes from the national tables, which had grasped the peculiarities and the local needs in supporting the e-mobility. The Transnational Living Lab scope is feed them into a common methodological framework.

Apart from short presentations on technical issues about the project, a great attention was given to the results of national tables and to the best practices, as well as the remarks of the stakeholders, from Public Administration, energy and mobility suppliers. They all expressed their strong involvement to take part in technical tables of the project.

Many participants attended the meeting, coming from five nations.

Applying a territory's perspective to the promotion of e-mobility - The second Transnational Living Lab

On the 16th of February 2021, the e-SMART partnership organized the second Transnational Living Lab under the title "The promotion of e-mobility in local public transport and last-mile-logistic from a territory's perspective". The main objective of the transnational living labs is to exchange on common challenges regarding regulation, implementation and policies of eletrified Local Public Transport (LPT) and Last-Mile Logstics (LML). The Living Labs are attended by stakeholders familiar with the project, but also new interested actors and external experts willing to give insights into their respective fields of action.

During this online meeting the 98 participants including e-SMART partners from different Alpine countries discovered what the e-SMART project has learned so far concerning the challenges for e-mobility in the fields of Last Mile Logistics and Local Public Transport.

The topics of the project were first adressed through a series of speeches from experts, and then after a quick online poll were discussed in smaller dedicated breakout sessions. The expert inputs were delivered by Martin Rheintaler, on a recent market study conducted in the city of Klagenfurt on joint electric charging infrastructure for LPT and LML. It was Christoph Möhring from the private form P3 Group who complemented his input from a private sector's perspective. Both presentations are available below.
