REZIPE FINAL CONFERENCE 2013
The EU-project REZIPE was summing up the project work and in the context of the final conference with international speakers in Klagenfurt on Lake Wörthersee it gave an outlook on the future of e-mobility.
In 2010 the EU-project REZIPE was set up within the ETC-Central Europe Programme, with the Department of Environmental Protection of the City of Klagenfurt as Lead Partner and eight project partners from 5 countries. With the pilot activities in six demonstrator regions more than 150,000 kilometres were driven by electric vehicles, resulting in more than 15 tons reduction in CO2 emissions. These results were presented at the FINAL CONFERENCE on the 11th September 2013 in Klagenfurt on Lake Wörthersee in the presence of 120 conference participants. Nine speakers from the REZIPE consortium presented their findings and experiences. Additionally, speakers from London, Baden-Württemberg and the Region of Carinthia reported on activities on their regional level and in the transnational URBACT EVUE-project.
Further in a panel discussion joint experiences were reflected and possible ways into an electric future in Europe were discussed.
Many initiatives were implemented within REZIPE – charging spots were set up, PV-power stations were installed, people were provided with EV of any kind and from different producers and workshops for specific target groups were offered. On the scientific level, feasibility studies and SWOT-analyses on the acceptance and practicability of e-mobility were realized and evaluated. The results of these four years of project work will be integrated in the ZERO EMISSION PLATFORM, an online platform which will be available for interested companies, research institutes, unions, European regions and municipalities in the future, to use the findings from REZIPE. In addition, the REZIPE website (www.rezipe.eu) offers several useful tools such as the charging spot locator and a product database with the available EV.
The conclusion of all conference participants across the borders was that people are interested in e-mobility, providing that there are attractive incentives and frameworks for using electric vehicles.
