Clean and energy-efficient vehicles, such as hybrid/electric buses and cars, aim to reduce greenhouse and other pollutant emissions, fuel consumption and fossil fuel dependency.

Exhaust gas treatment systems, alternative drive trains and the use of alternative fuels and energy storage systems can improve the environmental record of vehicles. Besides technical interventions, promotional and procurement initiatives can accelerate the uptake of low-emission vehicles.

Do you work in the field of sustainable mobility? Please share your experience!

Forums: 

I have created a survey intended for individuals and organizations, who are concerned with Sustainable Mobility and Urban Development. The survey seeks to gain key insights into which factors best support change (modal shift) in cities, by better understanding the priorities, strategies and experiences of all who are concerned with this topic.

París COP21 – El papel del sector del transporte en la lucha contra el cambio climático

El próximo mes de diciembre se reunirán en París representantes de gobiernos de todo el mundo en el marco de la 21ª sesión de la Conferencia de las Partes de la Convención Marco de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático (CMNUCC).

Conocida como COP21, la conferencia reviste una importancia crucial para alcanzar finalmente, y por primera vez en más de 20 años de negociaciones en la ONU, un acuerdo universal sobre el clima que sea legalmente vinculante, con el objetivo de mantener el aumento del calentamiento global por debajo de los 2 ºC.

How to systematise decarbonisation in contemporary cities?

Forums: 

Our SUMOSU STATION project –EIP SCC 5575- , which includes its own material infrastructure, proposes a roadmap for a Strategic Integration Plan (SIP) to contemporary cities which merges both their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans and their Action Plans for Sustainable Energy. Up until now, these two key urban planning tools on their own have been unsuccessful at reducing both traffic congestion and CO2 emissions in big metropolis, however, we are convinced that, when combined together in this new approach (SIP), they can solve sustainable mobility problems as well as the power challenges of a quick connection to smart grids. Have you had similar experiences? We are looking forward to reading about them.

Out Goes the Car. In Comes the Auto-mobile.

Forums: 

No doubt the car has come to a pivotal point with the prospect of 'driverless' and sharing cars rather than owning them. What they have in common is the more conscientious and efficient use of resources (materials, energy, time, infrastructure, the environment). In a recent interview Ford's Research & Advanced Engineering VP Ken Washington talked about what he sees as a defining factor.

ELMO: la innovadora red nacional de carga rápida para vehículos eléctricos en Estonia

Español

En 2011 Estonia puso en marcha un ambicioso programa nacional de movilidad eléctrica para promover el uso de los vehículos eléctricos en el país. El programa consistía en ofrecer subvenciones a los ciudadanos que quisieran adquirir estos vehículos, realizar campañas de sensibilización, instaurar un proyecto para compartir vehículos eléctricos y proporcionar este tipo de coches a los trabajadores sociales públicos.

Despliegue de autobuses de emisión cero en ciudades europeas

Español

Las ciudades europeas cada vez sufren más problemas de transporte debido a la contaminación atmosférica, las emisiones de CO2 y los consiguientes efectos sobre la salud, así como la congestión vial. El transporte comunitario depende además en un 95 % de los combustibles fósiles. La diversificación de las fuentes de energía es por tanto esencial para garantizar la seguridad del suministro energético en la Unión Europea.
