UITP is pleased to announce the launch of the Katowice partnership for e-mobility. The Declaration on E-mobility has been presented on 4 December at the COP24 and is one of the initiatives UITP has joined to advance public transport to help fight climate change.
The objective of the Partnership is to support the development of the e-mobility sector and the exchange of experience and scientific cooperation at the global and local level. A dedicated e-mobility trust fund launched in cooperation with the World Bank will help implement this initiative.
38 countries from 5 continents, international organisations, representing over 1,500 companies and 1,200 companies have already joined the partnership.
UITP has been very active to foster partnerships in the context of the COP24 and also partnered up with the World Bank to deliver a major position paper on ‘electric mobility and development’. This global study is dedicated to the technological and market developments of both private and public electric vehicles, and showcases examples of fleet deployment from around the world, including insights from several UITP members. The study has been presented on 4 December.
