Main aims and specific objectives of the project

The project aims to increase accessibility by fostering the diffusion of e-mobility and stimulating the use of public and private electric car transport as well as freight across the North Sea Region (NSR).

Specific project objectives are:

  • To provide state of the art information which may help policy development in e-mobility in the NSR;
  • To provide insight on gaps and needs in respect of infra-structure, logistics, and preliminary standards for multi charging techniques;
  • To develop a NSR smart grid concept with charging points, hence increasing accessibility in the region;
  • To provide a long-term basis upon which regional and local governments as well as other relevant stakeholders in the NSR may engage on e-mobility, among others by creating physical or virtual e-mobility information centres in each participating region or city.
  • To integrate the urban freight logistics dimension into the e-mobility network promoting better accessibility and cleaner cities by stimulating the use of electric vehicles as a more efficient solution.
