This yearly regional energy conferences arranged by the Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden was 2014 arranged in the city of Alvesta. All 120 participants got their copy of the Best Practice report elaborated by the Mobile Together. One of our projector partners was represented by Tim Lux who gave a presentation of the ride sharing concept in the session for Energy Efficient Transports.
The distributed Best Practise Report resulted in many questions and interesting discussions. Several municipalities in our region showed interest in testing ride sharing. This event also resulted in list potential partners in future ride sharing projects.
Welcome speech by Ulf Hansson , MD at Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden
Discussion about ride sharing whit representative from Oskarshamn Municipality
When the study trip visited de Drom last week, we got a chance to see the citizen´s office, where the inhabitants of Kröpelin can get help with the ride-sharing system. We also got some information on how ride-sharing has developed in Tingsryd and Bützow. Last but not least, those interested could try riding a pedelec.
Thursday and Friday this week the final partner meeting took place in Rostock, Germany. The first day was a joint study trip hosted by the projects Elmos, that is focusing on electrical mobility, and Mobile Together. On the trip we learned more about pedelec stations and ride-sharing. The pictures below show our visit at our ride-sharing partner de Drom and the rural pedelec station in Klein Strömkendorf.
The last day of our final event was hosted by our partner Pferdemarktquartier. After the formal meeting was done, with quite a few interesting discussions on our experiences, an exciting and varied program rounded up the get-together. At first there was oil and mustard tasting. After that a visit to a restored church with solar cells and finally a walking tour in a beautiful forest with some historical relics.
The ride-sharing initiatives have been evaluated and the implementing partners have come up with strategies for implementing ride-sharing in new areas. Interested? Please take a look at our results in the final report, choose Reports from the menu on the left.
If you know Swedish and are curious of how ride-sharing has worked in five Swedish villages, check out the brand new report.
