01: Electromobility – from vision to reality

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

Electromobility currently raises a variety of hopes: increase of energy efficiency and security of energy supply, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the establishment of a new green car industry, just to name a few. For electromobility to happen, a fundamental change of the transport and energy system including its infrastructure will be required. For the market introduction of electromobility an efficient management of change seems to be necessary, based on a common vision of public authorities and industry. Benchmarking of political visions and implementation strategies are at the core of this workshop in order to pave the ground to make electromobility happen.
