SOLUTIONS Webinars

City logistics

Date: This event has now passed
Presenter: Laetitia Dablanc, Director of Research at IFSTTAR (French Institute of science and technology)

The way that goods are transported within a city and delivered to their final destination has a direct impact on traffic congestion, pollution and noise. This interactive webinar will present solutions to these main challenges for city logistics, focusing on improving the overall efficiency of goods deliveries in cities. Further discussion will be related to consideration for labour, safety issues and enhancing the quality of urban transport services for the clients and the economy.

Electric vehicles for cleaner cities

Date: This event has now passed
Presenter: Oliver Lah and Hanna Hüging, Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy

Many cities strive for a cleaner vehicle fleet, whether the aim is to improve the municipal fleet (including public transport vehicles) or to encourage residents to choose alternatively fuelled or electric vehicles over conventionally fuelled vehicles. This interactive webinar will provide an introduction to electric vehicles (EVs) as well as guidance on how to increase the use of EVs in urban environments. Options on fostering EV deployment and examples from cities around the world will be discussed.

Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans

DateThis event has now passed
Presenter: Tim Durant, Consultant at Rupprecht Consult

The concept of sustainable urban mobility planning goes beyond traditional transport planning, emphasising the involvement of citizens and stakeholders, policy coordination between sectors and authority levels, and between neighbouring authorities. This interactive webinar offers an overview of the SUMP concept, with further group discussion focused on case examples and transferability to a variety of local context conditions.

Sustainable public transport

DateThis event has now passed
Presenter: Gustavo Jimenez Vera, Planning and Operation of Transport, EMBARQ Mexico

While there are many ways to improve and extend sustainable public transport in cities throughout the world, this webinar will explore two of them: bus rapid transit (BRT) and clean vehicles. Corresponding technology, cost-efficiency issues and relevant examples will be discussed. Methods for identifying a city’s long-term public transport needs and developing feasible measures to meet these needs will also be introduced.

Light electric vehicles for cleaner cities

DateThis event has now passed
Presenter: Annick Roetynck, Light Electric Vehicle Policy Manager at AVERE (The European Association for Electromobility)

Today, many trips that are carried out using conventional cars could be done by light electric vehicles (LEVs). This would make urban transport much more sustainable. Emissions would “evaporate”, congestion would be reduced, transport would become safer, quieter and cheaper and public health would improve. Overall, replacement of car trips by LEV trips would make our cities much more liveable.

This interactive webinar will provide you with a wealth of information on LEVs and on how to promote their uptake and use. In the webinar you will receive answers to the following questions:

  • What are LEVs?
  • What can LEVs do for (urban) transport?
  • How to integrate LEVs into urban transport?
  • How to stimulate market uptake?
  • What are the main hurdles?
  • Are there best practice examples?
