Reducing environmental impact

About Clean Mobility

Smart mobility innovations can make a major contribution towards reducing the impact of transport on the environment, particularly in terms of reducing fuel consumption and emissions. Transport currently accounts for almost a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide and making mobility more sustainable is a key policy objective of governments, EU and international organisations.

Deployment of intelligent transport solutions can help reduce the carbon footprint and emissions by helping transport users and providers make smarter decisions. To achieve this, systems and services need to be made more efficient and attractive through greater interoperability and better information. It is from this angle that ERTICO approaches its work in the area of Clean Mobility. Innovative technologies, connectivity and automation can drive the decarbonisation of transport, improve the use of cleaner technologies for better air quality and tackle congestion.

ERTICO works with and supports its Partners to develop greener services and products, assess the impact on the environment, and work with other stakeholders to facilitate effective deployment of these solutions. ERTICO works on the development of electro-mobility and associated services such as interoperable electric vehicle charging.


Our Clean Mobility roadmap for 2030

ERTICO’s roadmap for 2030 regarding Clean Mobility is marked by essential milestones. Through the Innovation Platforms and projects run under this focus area, ERTICO is working to support the achievement of these milestones and the vision of widespread zero-emmision mobility in both urban and non-urban areas.

Current objectives in the area of Clean Mobility

Develop a common approach to the evaluation of ITS deployment as a tool for emissions reduction
ERTICO is working on developing methodologies and tools for assessing the CO2 impacts of different smart mobility applications, in order to assist policy and investment decisions. We seek to achieve consensus on measurement, assessment and evaluation techniques to allow results from different deployments to be more easily benchmarked.

Contribute to smart mobility solutions being recognised as a tool for reducing emissions
ERTICO is committed to supporting the development, testing and measurement of smart mobility solutions that contribute to emissions reduction, in particular CO2. We analyse and publicise the benefits, success conditions and lessons learnt from trials and deployments of smart mobility applications through studies and papers.

Achieve interoperability of electro-mobility
ERTICO’s Innovation Platform eMI3 works to create a standard for EV charging and service. We recognise the importance of having a de facto standard and strive of establishing the eMI3 as the de facto standard for EV charging. Through eMI3, ERTICO is working on defining clear pan-European interoperability rules and promoting that public authorities procurement for EV charging stations take eMI3 standards into account.

Contribute to creating an ICT network with seamless and interoperable electro-mobility services
Developing and testing solutions for seamless services for EV users is of outmost importance for the uptake of electric vehicles. ERTICO is working to develop a “hyper network” for electro-mobility, including a pan-European roaming framework. We recognise the importance of integrating electro-mobility into Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and work toward this goal as well as for fostering the uptake of smart electro-mobility solutions in cities.
