CityMob: promoting electric transport in cities

The city of Strasbourg is firmly on the road to the future – in an electric car. The capital of France’s northern Alsace region has become something of a city-size laboratory for the future of electric transport, as illustrated by the CityMob programme. The initiative doesn’t involve flying cars or spectacular building sites, but a combination of several ingenious tools to support the development of green modes of transport.The CityMob measures establish a clear link between scientific use of data and the optimization of commercial propositions.
MARS, EVITA, NODE and moreThe smart package of measures is part of the CROME cross-border project, which ensures interoperability between vehicles and electric charging stations in the Strasbourg and Kiel border regions of France and Germany. EDF’s R&D teams, working in partnership with the European Institute for Energy Research (EIFER)* , contributed MARS, a study on the impact of projected CO2 emissions by 2030. The package also includes EVITA, an app that locates charging facilities for electric vehicles (in line with the metropolitan area’s strategy) and NODE, a tool that quantifies passenger numbers to improve multimodal solutions. Finally, a comprehensive car-sharing system is expected to best meet the needs of residents.The CityMob measures establish a clear link between scientific use of data and the optimization of commercial propositions. The Strasbourg model, which has proven its worth since it was launched in 2012, could soon be extended elsewhere in Europe. Around 15 commercial services have already committed to the project.
