Event Details

E-mobility is taking the urban freight market by storm! Ten years ago, it was unthinkable to most in the industry that freight vehicles would be electrified any time soon. What with such large batteries needed, large distances that needed to be covered by the vehicles (even in urban areas), and such constant us e, it did not seem possible. Roll on 2021… there are several electric vehicles available: from electric bin lorries, vans and trucks, and even autonomous freight pods. This is not to mention smaller electric vehicles, delivery robots, electric barges and (electric) urban air mobility for freight. But when will they be widespread, what charging solutions do we need, and do these electric solutions cover all urban freight transport needs?

With our upcoming event, we will discuss with experts about challenges to scale & developments in e-urban freight. What solutions are there for urban freight transport electrification, and what stage of development are they at? What role for different actors, and how can we support promising solutions to scale? And… can our electricity grids handle all of this?

Join the discussion on e-urban freight! The event is part of the Nordic Edge Expo 2021.

EIT Urban Mobility Innovation Hub North will co-facilitate and co-host this event.

The event will be run at this year’s Nordic Edge Expo and is the third event in the series Nordic+ Mobility webinars and runs jointly with EIT Urban Mobility, Innovation Norway, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Copenhagen, ITS Norway and EIT Climate KIC.

Doctor Anna Clark from Innovation Hub North will be a key speaker on Wednesday 22 September for the “On the Move“ Programme.
