eMobilityCity is a network for integrated electric mobility with the aim to move this issue forward within Thuringia. This is meant to be achieved by developing solutions for battery-charging, IT and consultancy systems as well as vehicles under one roof.
After a successful application for the Central Innovation Programme for medium-sized enterprises (ZIM) the network started working in September 2015 and received a commitment of support for the next three years. Within these three years the network wants to install 300 vehicles and 150 charging points in Erfurt and to integrate specific marketing and operator concepts.
The following partners of the network also support the development of electric mobility in Thuringia: the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, DAKO, EcoLibro GmbH, eLOG Systembetrieb GmbH, EPSa GmbH, Capital of the Land of Thuringia Erfurt, the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt, Fraunhofer IOSB-AST, Friedrich Schiller University Jena, HKW-Elektronik GmbH, IMMS GmbH, Navimatix GmbH, pwp-systems GmbH, SWE Energie GmbH, TAF mobile GmbH and the Ilmenau University of Technology.
The network and its products profit from the results of former researches like SMART CITY LOGISTIK and sMobiliTy. In addition, there will be several initiatives which support companies with the acquisition of electric vehicles. The first two initiatives are called ‘eFlotten-Initiative’ and ‘eMobilitäts-Initiative’. Especially companies that operate at least 5 electric vehicles are beneficiaries of this integrated service. But also interested regional companies will be supported and advised with fleet analysis and mobility analysis as well as with specific proposals of implementation.
