EXPERTISE IN ELECTRIC MOBILITY - page 24

Behind the Stuttgart Service Card project is a
complex technical system applying software
solutions. These technical solutions are also
used in fleet management and, especially in
public service fleets, can help identify poten-
tials for the electrification of the vehicle fleet.
The city of Ludwigsburg, for example, after
having analysed its user profile, has now inte-
grated several e-vehicles – from motorcycles
to cars – into the municipal vehicle fleet. The
Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure had
also analysed the fleets of the state authorities
within the ‘LivingLab BW
e
mobil’ project and is
integrating e-vehicles where possible.
To realise comprehensive and future-proof
mobility systems, electric mobility projects
must no longer be limited to certain towns
or cities. This requires the interlinking of mu-
nicipalities as done for example in the EMiS
project within the ‘Electric Mobililty Pilot Re-
gion’. In Göppingen and Schwäbisch Gmünd,
the project examines the potential of electric
mobility for urban development. The goal is to
create a manual that helps communities and
offers recommendations with respect to the
integration of electric mobility into modern ur-
ban planning and traffic concepts.
The Lake Constance district has also iden-
tified the need for linking mobility in this
regard. At the beginning of 2011, a work
group of district representatives from the ci-
ties and towns of Friedrichshafen, Überlingen,
Meckenbeuren, Hagnau and Deggenhausertal
was established. Together with the local utility
company and the Baden-Wuerttemberg Co-
operative State University (DHBW), the work
group focuses on technical, organisational,
administrative and other questions surround-
ing this future-oriented topic, and coordi-
nates individual participant activities. Several
municipalities of the Lake Constance district
cooperate within the BodenseEmobil project.
The goal of this project is to promote electric
mobility in a rural region that is character-
ised by industrial zones and tourism, through
threefold integration (public transport, energy,
communication).
Any comprehensive transition towards sus-
tainable and future-proof mobility starts within
the local communities. Only when practical
solutions and sustainable business models are
found can technological change be expanded
and transferred to the people. With their activi-
ties in different sponsored projects in the wide
area of electric mobility, towns and cities in
Baden-Wuerttemberg are evolving and devel-
oping to become e-mobile pioneers.
With our publication ‘New options for communities – electric mobility as a building
block of future-proof municipal development in Baden-Wuerttemberg’, responsible
officers in the state’s communities are introduced to the topic of sustainable mo-
bility. Practical examples show how electric mobility can be realised in their local
communities for the benefit of their inhabitants. It presents options for activities,
concepts and ideas for communities that support them in initiating and expanding
e-mobility programmes. (Available in German only.)
