Energy and Mobility in the Smart District


A district is a city in miniature. It is an excellent place to test trends such as e-mobility, the sharing economy, digitalization and the networking of supply structures and actors.

This web session focuses on mobility in smart districts. Find out which mobility projects have already been successfully implemented in neighbourhoods: How do actors best network? How is mobility linked to urban or district structures? How is the charging infrastructure organised? How does the infrastructure provider transform mobility from a lighthouse project into a standard process? And what roles do data and platforms play?

In our session, you will get to know players from large district developers and energy providers to the Open District Hub and the Fiware Foundation and gain interesting insights from concrete project examples.

Please note: This event will be held in German only.
