The research group City – Mobility – Energy
analyses areas where societal systems and sys-
tems of the built environment meet and overlap.
It examines the potential of sustainable urban
mobility concepts based on an integrated analysis
of the user perspective, and their interfaces with
urban structures, transportation and energy
models. Within several consortium projects and
together with municipal partners and companies
in the Stuttgart Region, practical and innovative
approaches are applied for evaluating e-mobility,
to see if the targets of urban development and
climate protection are being met. Cities are
encountering a growing number of technical
innovations whose potential for contributing to
municipal targets can hardly be guessed at this
point. System analyses can help identify the
interrelations between users and the benefits
from such innovations.
In the implementation of efficient urban man-
agement, empirical, sociological and spatial
methods are applied to develop strategies and
recommendations for sustainable urban devel-
opment. The range of methodologies involves
quantitative and qualitative methods from empirical
social research combined with spatial planning
methods on the municipal or regional level.
These include ‘stated preference and discrete
choice’ approaches and various workshop meth-
ods and pooling geographical information sys-
tems analyses.
