The transport sector in Europe is over 90% fossil fuel dependent. It is crucial that we look to alternative sources in order to decarbonise our transport systems and increase energy independence. The widescale adoption of electric and alternative fuel vehicles in urban areas presents unique challenges including charging infrastructure and the need for load-balancing solutions. Because of the importance of clean air in our cities and the technical and spatial requirements needed to transition to cleaner fuels, Energy and Mobility is one of the EIT Urban Mobility’s key challenge areas.
The Energy and Mobility open Innovation Community Day is the first step in building this wider network focused on delivering cleaner forms of power for urban transport.
This session will include an opening by the EIT Urban Mobility, followed by city speakers who will give their insights on working with EIT Urban Mobility, thought leaders will speak on key innovations in sustainable logistics and will be followed by private sector innovation pitches.
