Workshop: The procurement of electric vehicles
This EU workshop took place on 7 - 8 October 2014. All materials including presentations are available to download below.
As part of the Clean Fleets project, a series of four European workshops were organised with the aim of demonstrating how procurement of clean and energy-efficient vehicles is done in practice and to exchange and learn from each other’s experiences.
This European workshop in Rotterdam, hosted by Clean Fleets project partner the City of Rotterdam, took place over as part of the Rotterdam Electric Mobility Conference - REMC14.
Background - Clean vehicles in Rotterdam - Rotterdam's sustainable mobility policy aims to facilitate the economically very important distribution activities of the main port, while reducing the environmental impact of traffic.
The target of the Rotterdam Climate Initiative to half CO₂ emissions by 2025 from 1990 levels requires a modal shift to cleaner mobility options such as public transport, car sharing, and cycling, as well as clean vehicles and clean fuels.
The city supports electric (and plug-in electric) vehicles as the most promising type of vehice solution for a sustainable mobility future with a view to clean use. To accelerate the introduction of battery electric transport modes, Rotterdam has introduced the programme 'Rotterdam Electric', an integrated approach for electric transport.
This programme concerns all initiatives in the field of electric transport, in which Rotterdam strongly seeks cooperation with the market. The programme aims to challenge the market and to boost promising developments for electric mobility concepts.
