Transforming urban mobility - launch of DTU International Energy Report 2019
Date and time: October 9th, 2019, 8:30 - 13:00
Place: UN City, Copenhagen
Registration deadline for this event has expired.
As more than two billion people are added to the global population in the coming decades and urban populations continue to grow (70% by 2050), the question arises: how will we move them, and the goods they require, more efficiently and effectively than today?
Cities will require mobility solutions that are sustainable, affordable, secure and inclusive, and integrated with customer-centric infrastructure and services. This transformation rests on the twin pillars of mobility and energy, which both will require radical adaptation to meet demographic and a low carbon economy without increasing congestion and pollution.
The DTU International Energy Report 2019 focuses on sustainable mobility and transport systems in cities, e.g. Mobility in mega cities; Mobility, demand and management; Active transport modes (e.g. cycling); Smart mobility; Freight, logstics and delivery of goods in cities; Integrated energy systems – EVs and flexibility in super lab settings; Alternative fuels; Life circle assessments of different transport modes; and Urban mobility transformation and educational needs.
EIT Urban Mobility and DTU invite you for the launch which is held in connection with the C40 week in Copenhagen and the Live Like Tomorrow program.
The program of the launch will include presentation of the report, international key note speakers from C40 and big cities. And not least workshops and networking where you can discuss mobility solutions for your city.
DTU International Energy Report 2019 – Urban Mobility will be available online before the launch and available in paper at the event.
