Businesses and municipalities have come together through the E-Mobility Works project to push for greater electric vehicle take up in Europe. The EU-funded project will help municipalities to develop e-mobility action plans, and work with businesses to integrate electric mobility into their corporate strategies. As well as boosting the number of electric vehicles on the streets, the project also hopes to improve the provision of electric charging facilities across the continent.

Municipalities from Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Romania, Estonia, Finland and Greece are taking part in the project. Each country held kick-off meetings to introduce the project to relevant stakeholders, with many providing the public the chance to test out e-bicycles and electric vehicles, as well as engage in the discussion on electric mobility.

A study tour to Berlin (Germany) was held for project partners, attended by around 30 participants. Attendees looked at electric charging facilities and relevant e-mobility infrastructure in the German capital, which is renowned for its forward thinking electric mobility policies. The project runs from March 2014 to August 2016, and is funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe programmeof the European Union.
