Two of the main goals of the BSR electric project are trans-national learning and knowledge sharing, which is why there will be numerous events that we host directly or where the project will present its lastest findings. They will be across the different partner countries, and posted regularly. Moreover, you will find pictures and documents from the events here as well.
In 2019, Oslo is the European Green Capital, thanks to - among other things - the Norwegian car market being electrified at a record pace. The next ambition for Oslo is to become a zero emission city in 2030 and to electrify all urban transportation: vans, trucks, buses, ferries and heavy contruction machines.
The forth BSR-electric project partner meeting will be held in Oslo.
The development and implementation of environmentally friendly, emission-free, quieter and more efficient transport solutions for urban transport is a social trend. Herein, electric vehicles play a prominent role. In addition to the positive effects on the urban environment, electric ferries can be economical and attractive solutions as well. E-ferries have several advantages, such as the mostly already existing technology and infrastructure, short travel distances, as well as synergies with tourism solutions. Nevertheless, there are challenges for local authorities, transport companies and society in finding approaches for successful and sustainable implementation.
When we hear about electric mobility, the first thing that comes to our mind are electric cars and electric bikes. Rarely, we find that people also refer to such technical innovations as electric ferries, electric trucks or electric scooters when talking about e-mobility.
Our modern cities need to change. With more and more people living in and visiting the city centers the whole transportation system needs to adapt. This can be done in many different ways, for instance waste handling and heavy transports can be done during the night, and small, light weight parcels can be distributed via different kinds of bikes and scooters. What is clear is that not everything can be squeezed into the same template and format – diversity is key for the future of city logistics. A common enabler is the development and usage of E-vehicles of different kinds.
Now when more and more E-buses are being delivered to customers replacing mainly diesel-driven buses, we need to start thinking about the next step. Are we satisfied with just replacing the old technology with new more environmentally friendly technology. Or does this mean that we can also start doing things smarter and different, more satisfying for the passengers?
Invitation to workshop on e-vehicles and infrastructure for freight and goods transport “Breaking the barriers to a climate-friendly goods and freight transport business”
The third project partner meeting in the BSR-electric will be held in Hoeje-Taastrup. As part of the partner meeting, a capacity building seminar will take place on Wednesday 25th October between 1pm -5 pm. In addition to project partners, the seminar is open for local, national or regional participants working in the field of e-mobility , not least with goods/cargo transport or city logistic.
After a successful kick-off meeting in Hamburg, the BSR electric team is planning the second get together in Turku with all project partners and, for the capacity building seminar, also interested regional organisations and people to further work on fostering e-mobility in urban areas in the Baltic Region.
