Abstract

The European Project IMOSMID (Integrated MOdel for Sustainable Management of Mobility in Industrial Districts) is strongly focused on energy efficiency and carbon saving issues, showing new technologies and devices (fuel cells, charging points from RE, etc.) which could facilitate the introduction of electrical vehicles not only for the inner cities, but also for metropolitan areas, improving its features through the increase of autonomy and availability of the vehicle. IMOSMID aims at reducing carbon emissions by identification, assessment and exchange of innovative technologies and management plans for sustainable transport, by strongly focusing on energetic aspects as well as taking into account environmental and sanitary aspects. The identification of optimal management models for people mobility in productive areas will serve to reduce individual and private car usage for the home-work commuting with dedicated measures particularly related to carpooling. Keywords: energy efficiency, mobility management, innovative technologies, renewable energy, carbon emissions.
