EC PROJECTS MOLECULES


environmentally friendly and sustainable Smart Connected Electromobility systems.”


THE MOLECULES PILOTS In Grand Paris, MOPeasy (electric car sharing operator based in Grand Paris and partner in MOLECULES) have developed the car-sharing brand “monautopartage.fr” and have launched their service in Neuilly-sur-Seine jointly with Sodetrel, and in Marne-la-Vallée. This local solution is complementary with public transport: RATP and SNCF, but also with global solution like Autolib. The service is target- ing companies and medium size cities, and is based on an innovative electric car-sharing scheme: the key management system is integrated in the charging point, the service oper- ates autonomously and is available also in areas not covered by the telephone network. Multimodality is at the centre of the Berlin pilot where


the local car-sharing operator DriveNow is engaged in the project. DriveNow provides flexible car sharing services for people who occasionally want to enjoy the flexibility of a pri- vate car without owning it. The car can be picked up and left at any public parking lot in a predefined business area. Being station-independent this form of car sharing fosters urban multimodal mobility. MOLECULES Berlin will introduce multimodal and electro-mobility specific services such as a multimodal trip planner indicating time, costs and CO2


foot-


prints of different mobility modes and route options. This will be combined with reservation and booking of DriveNow e-cars, monitoring of the trip and the battery status and rout- ing services to the available charging station nearby. A new mobility service with e-motorbikes is being


launched in Barcelona in June: Motit, 100 per cent elec- tric motorbike sharing. In the early stage, GoingGreen will enable seven service areas in downtown Barcelona. In these


THE PROJECT The MOLECULES consortium comprises 10 partners from five different European countries and is formed by experts in the field of mobility and transport, and stakeholders from the public and private sector. MOLECULES is one of the four pilots launched


by the European Commission in 2012 which are looking at integrated electromobility services, these are ICT4EVEU, MOBI.Europe, and smartCEM. A dedicated LinkedIn group was created for


networking http://www.linkedin.com/groups/ Smart-Connected-ElectroMobility-pilots-4414567/about A special Interest Session on the activities in the four


pilots (SIS 09) Smarter traveling with electromobility / ICT for electromobility will take place at the ITS Congress in Dublin on Wednesday 5 June from 09:00-10:30 in the Wicklow Meeting Room 4.

FACING THE CHALLENGES Accessibility for all and efficient transit solutions are urban environmental challenges that have to be met whilst taking air quality and environmental protection into considera- tion at the same time. These three city-regions have taken on the challenge and are delivering top-notch mobility solu- tions. “Multimodality is an important element of the urban transportation strategy of Berlin to reduce the parking pres- sure in the inner city, to reduce the environmental impacts of motorized urban transport, to reduce the consumption of mineral oil and greenhouse gas emissions” says Hermann Blümel, head of Principle Affairs of Transport Policy at Berlin Senate Department for Urban Development. “New mobile communication devices offer a comfortable access to multimodal information services, which were not avail- able up to now. Thus, multimodality will reach a new quality and will become a successful offer within the competition of urban transport options.”

Motit electric motorbikes have an exclusive design created especially for sharing services in Barcelona. Each vehicle is equipped with a 7” screen with navigator system incorporated


areas users will be able to pick up and drop off their bikes wherever they want. Bikes can be booked via web or smart- phone or tablet, users can rent the scooter (and free helmet) by time or a distance. The bike is 100 per cent electric and it has a navigator that will guide you to your destination.
