New results in InterGreen Nodes in the Transnational Summary Report on Regional Needs for Implementing Green Solutions

We are pleased to announce further progress in InterGreen-Nodes!

The work package WP2 deals with the spatial issues of nodes and deals, among other things, with the spatial planning part of the integration of a green last mile.
By means of questionnaire actions, the regional preconditions of greening nodes in the partner regions were analysed in terms of spatial planning, transport infrastructure and use of renewable energies as well as spatial needs and challenges within the nodes.
The results of the analysis of regional spatial preconditions and spatial needs were combined in a transnational summary report on spatial/regional needs for the implementation of green solutions. They are the basis for the development of the planned regional action plans, which will be finalised this summer.

InterGreen-Nodes aims to develop environmentally friendly, intermodal last-mile freight transport in urban areas. The project delivers highly innovative solutions, which will be demonstrated in a practical and tangible way and disseminated throughout the CENTRAL EUROPE program region. But not only on a practical level. Flanking strategic measures on spatial planning and political level ensure a strategic basis.

We share these and further information around the topic of Green-Solutions in the Scandria Corridor with you.

STF adopts report on recommendations for public authorities for electric recharging infrastructure

 

The Sustainable Transport Forum (STF), a formal expert group advising the European Commission on the implementation of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive, has unanimously adopted a Report entitled:

'Recommendations for public authorities for procuring, awarding concessions, licences and/or granting support for electric recharging infrastructure for passenger cars and vans'.

The STF detailed recommendations report aims to provide practical guidelines for public authorities intending to procure recharging infrastructure, or to award concessions for their roll-out and/or operation, possibly linked to the granting of government support. By providing an overview of innovative best practice by frontrunners, the STF aims to develop a set of minimum recommendations for public authorities seeking to support the deployment of recharging infrastructure.

The Recommendations analyse the three main steps for public authorities to consider when planning the deployment of recharging infrastructure:

defining the deployment approach;
organising the tender procedure;
developing specific tender requirements.

A summary handbook outlining the main findings, recommendations and examples included in the detailed STF report will be published on the dedicated MOVE webpage.
