Electric mobility for sustainable tourism
The transport sector is responsible for 28.3% of total CO2 emissions in the European Union. Ambitious emission reduction targets established by the European Commission involves the achievement of a Europe with zero climate impact by 2050 and a push to find new solutions to limit the negative effects of the transport sector on the environment.
With the development of a collective consciousness that is more sensitive to environmental issues interest in electric mobility has grown in recent years but several barriers still exist. The MOBSTER project (Electric mobility for sustainable tourism) considers the tools that are already in use in the e-mobility field and applies them in an innovative may in order to encourage the spread of electric mobility and promote sustainable tourism in cross-border areas of Italy and Switzerland.
Thanks to the involvement of Italian and Swiss partners from South Tyrol, the Province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola and Canton Ticino, the initiative promotes the creation and consolidation of cross-border networks between businesses and other players operating in the electric mobility sector, in order to improve touristic enjoyment and encourage more sustainable lifestyles.
