“New online platform on mobility of the future”


A new online platform by German utility association BDEW and business consultancy PwC aims to share experiences with alternative mobility and integrated city concepts, BDEW said in a press release. The website introduces the latest innovative projects in various cities, encouraging traditional energy providers and new competitors to pool ideas for sustainable urban development, the press release said. “Coping with rising traffic volumes is already a major challenge for cities,” BDEW’s head Stefan Kapferer said. Discussing concepts for integrating e-mobility and smart grids fuelled by renewable power could make an important contribution to climate protection, he added.
