Several Structural Fund programmes include specific priorities on innovative mobility patterns and transport systems based on lower or zero CO2 emissions. Alternative fuel and e-mobility represent an excellent opportunity to reduce the carbon footprint of economic activities in urban and extra-urban areas. e-MOPOLI aimed to contribute to an efficient diffusion of e-mobility and alternative fuels mobility with improvement of 9 policy instruments set, 6 of which directly linked to Structural Funds, in Italy, Slovenia, Greece, Belgium, Finland, Norway, Romania and Latvia.
Partners commited to concentrate on several main working areas:
- charging and tolling policies in favour of e-vehicles,
- development of charging infrastructure powered by alternative sources,
- integration of charging infrastructure and charging hubs in spatial planning,
- deployment and purchase of alternative fuel vehicles in public transport, and
- promotion of e-mobility in niche market fleets.
The policy instruments selected by nine partners were improved mainly through new projects and enhanced governance. The regional and interregional learning process actively involved project partners, their institutions and their stakeholders groups. The project, in order to effectively reach its goal, was structured on thr following steps:
- e-MOPOLI methodology,
- Partners’ local and regional territorial context analysis,
- Good Practices selected for exchange of experience and transfer of lesson learnt,
- Nine Regional Action plans,
- Monitoring of 9 Action Plans through e-MOPOLI webtool,
- e-MOPOLI recommendations on business, governance and RIS3 level for Regional and Local Authorities.
Besides reaching e-MOPOLI outputs and results, partnerships transfered them to a wider audience, through carefully planned communication activities, which will include regional and interregional events such as conferences, workshops, dissemination events, Policy learning platform and Programme events.
