Without a thorough transformation in the transport sector, the energy transition will not succeed. On the one hand, emissions caused by mobility must be significantly reduced. On the other hand, the two sectors of transport and energy need to be linked. Lower Saxony, where the dominance of car traffic is more pronounced than in other German regions, has initiated many sustainable mobility projects in recent years. Now it is a matter of spreading the word on new mobility concepts. To contribute to this broader goal, the WenaMoNi project carries out a comprehensive cross-sectoral analysis in the field of sustainable mobility in Lower Saxony and then identifies opportunities and obstacles.
In this project, Ecologic Institute investigates which structures are already working on pushing sustainable mobility in Lower Saxony. The team assesses legal framework conditions and carries out an actor analysis, focusing in particular on those institutions and groups that work on electric mobility and hydrogen – innovations that affect both the transport and the energy sector.
