Promoting Eco-Mobility

There are many ways to cut down emissions in the transport sector. Discover how FEDARENE members are doing it through remarkable projects!

Transport is responsible for a large share of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions and is a major contributor to climate change. It has also proven to be one of the most recalcitrant sectors for decarbonization. Many FEDARENE members are working hard to cut down transport emissions in their regions, but also improve citizens’ quality of life by reducing noise and traffic pollution. In this new publication, you will find out some of the most recent and remarkable projects FEDARENE’s member energy agencies and regions have been working on in this field:

  • AREAM (PT) has conducted a demonstration of three electric buses since December 2017 in Madeira and Porto Santo islands, proving that electric buses are technically feasible, cost-effective and environmentally more favourable in relation to conventional fuelled buses;
  • Northern Småland Energy Agency (SE) is running the REDI project in co-operation with the other energy agencies of Sweden. REDI aims to enhance digitalized meetings in order to cut down travel emissions and develop a more energy-efficient transport system;
  • IRE Liguria (IT) is promoting e-mobility in the Italian region of Liguria through the installation of 22 new e-charging stations and their new call for expressions of interest for new projects to invest in.

All projects are featured in our 2020 Sustainable Regions in Action brochure published in January 2020.
