As part of the activities organised in Lisbon during the European Mobility Week, EMEL presented the FREVUE project and two electric vehicles from its fleet and took part in the EV parade.
More than 40 urban freight stakeholders took part in a study tour on urban freight organised in London on 7 & 8 September 2016 by the two European projects FREVUE and CIVITAS Capital.
The U.S. Huffington Post recently published a series of four articles on the sustainable efforts of the Dutch capital city. Developed in the framework of FREVUE in Amsterdam, the American magazine mentions electric freight and freight consolidation.
EMEL, the Lisbon’s Municipal Mobility and Parking Company (leading FREVUE partner in Lisbon), renewed its operational fleet with 17 electric scooters Silence S02 Model by Scutum. These electric scooters will be used daily to support the parking enforcement activities in Lisbon.
The 5th SUMP Award will be officially launched on Monday 5th September 2016. In order to provide local authorities with information and answers to their questions, a webinar will be held on the launch day (14.00 – 15.00)
Zero Emission of air pollutants at the local level is often the main positive aspect considered when the case for electrification of urban freight traffic is made. The additional advantage of less noise production is often mentioned, but seldom quantified. To investigate this, a spatial analysis has been made.
Every year, the SUMP Award is presented to cities and regions that show excellence in developing and implementing their sustainable urban mobility plans. The award focuses on a different thematic aspect of sustainable urban mobility planning each year.
This year, the thematic will be “Freight in sustainable urban mobility planning”.
