Cardiff University has expertise in a range of evaluation and research methods. Cardiff University personnel are currently working on relevant projects: on the development of smart grid scenarios for the UK (which includes modelling electric vehicles integration); on mixed‐method field experiments to change energy behaviours across UK universities; and on several European projects to foster sustainable transport and electric vehicles adoption.

Câmara Municipal de Lisboa

http://www.cm-lisboa.pt

Câmara de Lisboa is the executive body of City of Lisbon.
In December 2008, the Lisbon municipality approved the Lisbon Energy and Environmental Strategy with very clear targets regarding energy, water and materials. In line with the National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency, the Lisbon targets aim to achieve an energy consumption reduction of 8.9%, achievable through energy management in buildings and transport by 2013.

At a national level, Lisbon is part of the ambitious National Program for Electric Mobility (MOBI.E) launched in 2008 with the aim of setting up a nation‐wide intelligent recharging network with 500 charging points. In this framework, Lisbon has developed a long‐term strategy envisioning a city with high environmental standards and where electric mobility plays a major role. In the same spirit, the municipality wants to lead by example and increase the share of electric vehicles in its municipal fleet, which is aligned with the goals of the eBRIDGE project.

Movilidad Urbana Sostenible S.L.

http://www.movus.es

Movus was founded with the goal of bringing new solutions to the urban mobility in order to help achieve more sustainable mobility. Located in Valencia, Spain, Movus focuses on the research and development of new mobility solutions. The present market offers few solutions, and usually with insufficient information, lack of technology and appropriate applications. This is the case of some modern systems such as bike‐sharing, car‐pooling, car‐sharing, electric vehicles, and on-demand public transportat.

The implementation of these strategies needs a deep knowledge of the problem to be able to propose and implement coherent and effective new solutions using new technologies and methodologies of management.The priorities of the company are the new approaches to mobility, which can generate alternatives to the private car, in order to make a shift towards a more environmental, social and economic sustainable mobility.

 

CEAGA-Galicia Cluster of Automotive Companies

http://www.ceaga.com

The CEAGA Foundation is an association, which brings together the entire automotive industry in Galicia, a region in the northwest of Spain. It was first established in November 2006 in order to implement the "Strategic Plan for the Galician Automotive Sector" (PESA).

This Foundation is a natural extension of the Galician Automotive Companies Cluster, created in 1997 by initiative of 37 automotive components manufacturers, with the aim of developing cooperative projects to improve their competitiveness.

Since it was first established, the number of members has more than doubled in size: from an initial figure of 37 companies to the 91 companies (including the PSA Peugeot Citroën centre in Vigo and the Galician Automotive Technological Centre) which currently form part of CEAGA. The 91 companies of the cluster had a turnover in 2011 of 7,000 million EUR, representing 12% of Galician GDP, and employing 19,300 people in the industry.

The Government of the Balearic Islands participates in the eBRIDGE project through two General Directorates:
1. The General Directorate of Industry and Energy with competences in the fields of energy saving and efficiency. The directorate works in a close cooperation with the national IDAE (Institute for Diversification and Saving of Energy), a public entity under the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism on the Development Action Plan 2008‐2012 (PAE4 +) Strategy Savings and Efficiency in Spain.

Some current regional projects being developed under this cooperation agreement are urban mobility plans, the modernization of the fleet and new charging stations and the promotion of efficient driving measures for passenger and industrial vehicles. These three lines of work are directly related to energy efficiency in the transportation sector.

2. The General Coordination of the Government is responsible for monitoring programs and projects developed by the Autonomous Community. In April 2011, it drafted the Plan of Action of the Electric Vehicle Development in the Balearic Islands.

Berlino

Berlino, capitale della Germania, è una metropoli con 3,3 milioni di abitanti. Città in continua trasformazione, è terreno fertile per la ricerca e per l’innovazione. Una fitta rete di trasporti, pochi possessori d’auto e un sistema di car sharing con oltre 3.500 veicoli rappresentano l’ideale punto di partenza di nuovi concetti di mobilità.

Comuni austriaci

A differenza della tendenza globale, il car sharing in Austria è rimasto statico negli ultimi 15 anni. L’introduzione della mobilità elettrica da un lato e l’ingresso di nuovi operatori dall’altro hanno rivitalizzato il settore.

Vigo

Vigo è una grande città situata nella provincia di Pontevedra, nella costa nord ovest della Spagna. Come città portuale, Vigo gioca un ruolo strategico per il turismo regionale e per le solide infrastrutture di trasporto che ne fanno un punto nevralgico della Galizia e del nord del vicino Portogallo.

Valencia - Palma

L'area metropolitana di Valencia, con 1.700.000 abitanti, è il terzo maggior agglomerato urbano in Spagna. Negli utlimi anni la regione ha fatto notevoli investimenti per migliorare il trasporto urbano con il compito di promuovere l’uso di modalità sostenibili di trasporto.

Milano

Milano, nell’Italia settentrionale, è la seconda città d’Italia per dimensione e capoluogo della Lombardia. Si estende per 182 km2 e conta 1.350.000 abitanti. Nel 2015 ospita EXPO, evento per il quale si prevedono circa 20 milioni di visitatori nel corso dell’anno. Ha perciò pianificato un rafforzamento del sistema di trasporto urbano e introdotto una zona a traffico limitato e a pagamento per gli automobilisti, la cosidetta Area C.

Lisbona

Lisbona è la capitale del Portogallo, con una popolazione di 547.773 abitanti. La città si trova sulla riva destra del fiume Tagus, nel cuore del Paese, essendo il suo maggior centro economico e politico, cosmopolita e dinamico, come risultato di centinaia di spostamenti quotidiani registrati dalla sua popolazione fluttuante e residente.

Carmarthenshire

Carmarthenshire è una delle 22 divisioni amministrative (Contee) del Galles. È la terza Contea gallese per dimensioni e la quarta per popolazione (183.000 abitanti).
