The goal: A shift from private cars to shared electric mobility Read More
Congestion, pollution and growing urban population in NWE forces us to replace private cars by alternative mobility options. By providing a critical mass of eHUBS (physical cluster of shared electric mobility modes of transport) and make available shared mobility to the end-user, we kickstart the mobility transition. Private car use in cities will decrease. While eHUBS are technically feasible, deployment is hindered because of slow user adaptation, lagging urban planning and legislative/policy hurdles. Critical mass and scalability is key and knowledge transfer is absolutely necessary to remove barriers for local authorities.
Partner cities from 5 countries will realize and promote eHUBS and pave the way for others to do the same. There will be eHUBS on strategic locations, connected to other modes (e.g. public transport), but also small eHUBS in living areas. The eHUBS implementation approach will differ per city to create an overall best practice that can easily be applied in other cities and regions. This will result in an additional 1,477 kg tons CO2 reduction p/y at the project end and 287,022 kg tons CO2 p/y 10 years later (compared to baseline, incl. replication cities).
- Design and deployment/adaptation of 92 eHUBS in 6 pilot cities with in total 2,395 shared LEVs and 672 EVs
- Implementation toolkit for cities
- Active cooperation with 20 “replication cities”
- Community outreach programme to inform and engage users
LONG TERM EFFECTS
By kick starting the mobility transition in 6 pilot cities we will set an example for all of NWE. Other cities can benefit from applying the blueprint and copying best practices. A large-scale uptake will cause a leverage by significantly reducing CO2 emissions in the cities and creating a growing market for commercial shared e-mobility providers.

This seminar is for all project partners and lead partners of projects approved in Call 7. Participants will get to know about useful tips and hints for project implementation.
The EU project eHUBS, co-funded by European Commission’s Interreg North-West Europe Programme, kicked off its activities at a partner meeting on the 10th and 11th of April 2019 in Lille.
