Main Goal: Going beyond zero emissions
Vertical integration of urban infrastructures is extremely helpful to increase their efficiency. Facing challenges holistically allows taking the most from the invested resources. While urban mobility faces challenges such as: the dependency on fossil fuels, a growing car park and unsustainable pollution and noise, the urban energy system need to deal with a growing energy consumption and the difficulty of integrating renewable energy sources. There is a way to improve mobility while solving many of the problems of the energy system. For that, it is necessary to create a mechanism for the development of sustainable energy models through e-mobility solutions as an innovative product for the development of smart cities. Technology is ready but needs to be demonstrated in real environments. Public and private investments need to be triggered and for that, it is essential to build trust relationships. The biggest players in the market need to collaborate with the smallest ones, thus fostering resources and knowledge exchange to jointly achieve the full potential of the solutions to be developed.
The intelligent Mobility vision of the initiatives is a framework to move towards a new e-mobility ecosystem: sustainable, environmentally friendly and concerned about citizen's health.
In line with it, the initiative intends to work holistically around three innovation areas:
- Intelligent Power - towards zero emissions, spearheaded by electric vehicles;
- Intelligent Integration - Towards vertical integration of urban infrastructure through the development of new mobility and energy services;
- Intelligent Driving - towards zero fatalities and connected cars, spearheaded by autonomous drive technology.
The IMET initiative will be presented at the WEBINAR about the Sustainable Urban Mobility Action Cluster, which will take place on 21st Sept. from 16:30-18:00.
Moreover, the initiative will participate at the SUM AC meeting held on 11th October 2017 and at the Marketplace Breakfast discussion that will take place in advance of the EIP-SCC General Assembly scheduled for 12th October 2017.
Status and Forward Plans
The initiative has been recently started, an Action Plan will be available soon.
