Urban Electric Mobility Initiative
|Name of initiative||Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI)|
|Secretariat||Urban Electric Mobilit Initiative (UEMI), Oliver Lah, Oliver.firstname.lastname@example.org; phone: +49 30 2887458-16|
|Organisational structure||The secretariat of the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative was established to facilitate the operation of the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative. The UEMI secretariat develops partnerships with local authorities, industry, SMEs, knowledge and network partners to implement innovative urban electric mobility solutions. The UEMI partnership currently consists of over 150 partners collaborating on implementation-oriented projects.|
|Name of lead organisation||UN-Habitat|
|Type of lead organisation||International organisation|
|Location/Nationality of lead organisation||Kenya|
|Description||The Action Platform: Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI) was initiated by UN-Habitat and the SOLUTIONS project and launched at the UN Climate Summit in September 2014 in New York. The UEMI aims to contribute significantly to the overall goal of limiting the increase in global mean temperature to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by decreasing urban CO2 emissions globally. As one of the Action Areas of the UN Climate Summit the UEMI aims to phase out conventionally fuelled vehicles in cities and integrate electric mobility into a wider concept of sustainable urban transport.|
|Objectives|| Industry leaders (car and battery manufacturers, energy producers, distributors, renewables) pledge that in pursing the goal of sustainable development, with particular reference to transport and mobility, they will strive to increase the global market share of electric vehicles in cities to reach at least 30% by 2030.
Government and City representatives pledge that in pursuing the goal of sustainable urbanisation, they will strive towards a goal of: By 2030 Electric Vehicles will form 30% of the fleet of light duty vehicles (LDV), plying in their cities.
Multilateral Development Banks: Will Pledge to increase their investments in infrastructure to support cities in attaining the goal of 30% of the LDV fleet being comprised of Electric Vehicles.
|Activities|| The UEMI is working with local authorities, industry, SMEs, knowledge and network partners to implement innovative urban electric mobility solutions in the context of the New Urban Agenda. As part of urban implementation actions, the UEMI team assesses the opportunities for e-mobility concepts in their wider sustainable transport strategy.
Urban Mobility Living Labs The UEMI is an active partnership focusing on local action that can demonstrate the validity of e-mobility vehicle and service concepts, considering a wider urban mobility transformation pathway. As part of this effort the UEMI and its partners implement demonstration actions in Urban Mobility Living Labs in which e-mobility innovations are co-developed.
Capacity building and implementation support The UEMI resource center aims to bridge the gap between urban energy and transport and boosting sustainable transport and urban e-mobility. The UEMI pools expertise, facilitates exchange and initiates implementation-oriented actions. Public and private sector actors can seek support from the UEMI partnership on vehicle and service development and integration, local and national policy and planning as well as funding and financing.
|One or two success stories achieved||The UEMI has initiated several pilot project with support of the Urban Pathways project (www.urban-pathways.org) and is now working in ten demonstration actions in the context of the SOLUTIONSplus project (http://www.solutionsplus.eu) that aim to provide transformative e-mobility concepts, covering the areas of vehicles, operations and integration.|
Monitoring and Impacts
|Function of initiative||Implementation, Technical dialogue, Political dialogue|
|Activity of initiative||Goal setting (ex-ante), Knowledge dissemination and exchange, Awareness raising and outreach|
|Goals|| By 2030 Electric Vehicles will form 30% of the fleet of light duty vehicles (LDV), plying in their cities.
UEMI aims to help phasing out the use of conventionally fuelled vehicles in cities and increase the share of electric vehicles in individual mobility (2-3 wheelers and light duty vehicles) in urban areas to at least 30% by 2030. The UEMI aims to boost the share of electric vehicles in urban transport and integrate electric mobility into a wider concept of sustainable urban transport that achieves a 30% reduction of GHG emissions in urban areas by 2030.

|How will goals be achieved|
|Have you changed or strenghtened your goals|
|Progress towards the goals|| The initiative is working on the development of a pipeline of project concepts that can be taken further towards implementation. It will also work on capacity building and the development of a toolkit on sustainable urban mobility in 2016.
A new series of trainings, webinars and e-learning courses and a call for partner cities will be launched in late-2016 together with the urban mobility SOLUTIONS network.
