Challenges and Opportunities for Green Transport: Clean Urban Freight Solutions

A specialist seminar organized by the Research and Transfer Centre “Applications of Life Sciences”, Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, in the frame of the INTERREG IVB North Sea Region Project E-Mobility NSR, kindly supported by the German Electric Mobility Association, Northern German chapter.

Date: Thursday, 22 May 2014
Time: 09:30 - 16:00
Venue: Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften Hamburg (HAW Hamburg)
Address: Berliner Tor 21 (Aula), 20097 Hamburg

The urban freight sector is seen as key initial market for electric vehicles. Zero-emissions electric lorries are generally used in Europe on scheduled, regular delivery routes suited to electric vehicles’ limited range. The vehicles are charged at the depot, which reduces dependency on the public charging infrastructure. Compared to diesel vehicles, electric goods vehicles are also highly energy-efficient in slow, stop-start urban traffic and on short journeys. Yet despite their suitability for urban freight transport and the environmental benefits they offer, electric vehicles so far account for fewer than one in a thousand registered heavy goods vehicles in Germany.

The specialist seminar ‘Clean Urban Freight Solutions’ will cover issues ranging from the European political motivations behind innovative, low-emissions freight to the challenges of and driving forces behind electric haulage solutions in Europe, in Germany and in Hamburg. Solutions developed by businesses and research institutes and examples of best practice from major European cities will offer an insight into the potential offered by electric heavy goods vehicles.
