How can EU regions develop innovative solutions and policies surrounding electric mobility and thereby ensure to be drivers of green growth? What role can flexible public-private partnerships involving SMEs, energy providers, suppliers, retailers and public bodies play?

Those and more questions were addressed last October 19th during the 2nd Regional Stakeholder Meeting conference hosted by EV Energy Partner EUR S.p.A in its facilities.

Experts and key stakeholders at our roundtables included representatives of ENEL S.p.A., GLS Italy, UMPI, Share’ngo, the Sustainable Mobility Research Agency of University Sapienza of Rome, the Mobility Service Agency of the City of Rome and many more.

The conference touched upon the topics of current policy context for electric vehicles at national, regional and local level and the role electric vehicles can play in stimulating green job opportunities, on how to gain knowledge and insights about overcoming regulatory bottlenecks for e-mobility, on developing ways to support national strategies via EU funding in order to foster energy market liberalization in the automobile market.

During the discussions the partners were examining the options on how EV producers innovate and adapt in order to limit GHG emissions through e-mobility, and were exploring the ways of overcoming the greatest electric mobility challenges, including infrastructure and recharging. Lively and interactive discussions with key stakeholders in the field of e-mobility served as a platform to build lasting partnerships for future collaborations.

After the meeting, EV Energy project partners attended the Press conference of the inauguration of Formula E, planned in the EUR neighborhood of Rome in April 2018.  

Interviews during the conference will soon be available on the EV energy web page https://www.interregeurope.eu/evenergy/
