FROM THE MINUTES 2018
KEY STAKEHOLDERS AND SOME OF THEIR CHALLENGES
- Set ambitious emissions targets
- Legislate and regulate to get there
- Provide necessary funding and support to partners
- Invest in infrastructures (bike, transit, charging facilities)
- Use data and creative solutions to better manage traffic and parking
- Offer incentives for geener choices
- Offer more and better transit options
- Electrify vehicle fleets
- Make the transition to renewable energy
- Prepare the grid for electric vehicles
- Commit to zero-emission
- Develop recyclable materials and sustainable supply chains
- Become a mobility service provider, not just a "car company"
- Rethink consumption and mobility choices
- Demand action from government and business
WALKING THE TALK
Here are some inspiring examples of cities and companies creating new models of collaboration:
Including public utilities
Getting the electrical grid ready for the increase in demand caused by electric vehicles will be a challenge. To test creative solutions, BMW put in place the Chargeforward pilot project, a collaboration with California-based energy company PG&E. This project uses telematics to direct vehicles to charge during nonpeak hours.
Mobilizing businesses and citizens
The city of Dundee, Scotland, developed the Drive Dundee Electric campaign to mobilize the community for electric vehicles. The initiative includes: electrifying the municipal vehicle fleet, supporting electric taxis, installing public charging points, promoting the installation of private charging points, and raising awareness about the benefits of electric vehicles.
Getting the regulation right
The city of Portland’s Smart Autonomous Vehicle Initiative (SAVI) aims to work with stakeholders to implement autonomous vehicles. The goal? Shift to modes other than the private vehicle. Active transportation and public transit come first, and even within the category of electric and autonomous vehicles, priority is given to shared vehicles.
