Key Findings of German Showcase Region for Electric Mobility: E-Mobility Works! Economic Feasibility and Legal Frameworks as Main Challenges

Publication Year: 2016

Author(s): Ruprecht M


The Showcase Region for Electric Mobility Living Lab BWe mobil takes place in the two largest cities of Baden-Wuerttemberg in the south-west of Germany. The results of large-scale regional government-funded demonstration projects are described in this paper. Electric mobility works in various use cases and different types of vehicles, but economic feasibility is still a challenge in some use cases. For this reason continuous R&D activities are needed and appropriated legal frameworks help to overcome obstacles and offer incentives. Thus continuous research and development activities concerning EVs are needed to achieve cost reduction. Consequently in addition to the LivingLab BWe mobil, research is also being done in the context of the leading-edge Cluster Electric Mobility South-West, which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
