Future Oriented Mobility: Integrative Concepts for the Alpine Space
29 September 2009 - University of Applied Sciences, Kempten

The future energy supply is facing great challenges. On the one hand climate change is steadily proceeding, on the other hand raw materials are becoming scarce - and much more expensive in the long term. Nowadays 98% of road transport in the EU depends on fossil fuels. Within the EU Alpine Space Project CO2NeuTrAlp - CO2-Neutral Transport for the Alpine Space ( it shall be demonstrated, that environmentally friendly mobility by means of renewable resources from the region is feasible without endangering the environment.

The international CO2NeuTrAlp Kick-Off Conference offers a central platform for the discus-sion of the first project results and the potential of renewable energies for alternative propul-sion technologies. Both technological and organisational concepts for sustainable mobility - foremost but not only - in the Alpine Space will be presented and debated. A vehicle fleet with electric or biogenous powered passenger cars, trucks, buses, pedelecs and tractors will be made available for demonstration purposes. Apart from the project partners from France, Italy, Slovenia, Austria and Germany, about 200 international guests are expected, including decision-makers from local authorities, regions and companies, mobility experts, scientists as well as a broad range of public experts.


The International Project CO2NeuTrAlp
Within the scope of the project 15 partners are testing innovative propulsion technologies for transport in the Alpine Space based on renewable energies. In doing so, it shall be made sure that the use of biofuels and electric energy conform to transparent sustainability re-quirements.

Using the example of the Allgäu region, the project will look at the integration of electric mo-bility can be integrated in the transport system of the whole Alpine Space. Next to the opera-tion of vehicles and charging stations under the specific conditions of the Alpine Space, the pilot project looks at new business concepts, tariff and incentive systems and services, such as e. g. vehicle renting systems for tourists.

CO2NeuTrAlp is funded under the European Territorial Cooperation Programme for the Al-pine Space. The German project partners B.A.U.M. Consult GmbH and AllgäuNetz GmbH & Co. KG are co-funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Public Health and the City of Sonthofen.
