In order to reach climate targets and combat congestion and local air pollution, a shift is needed towards smart and sustainable mobility. Although numerous countries, regions and cities are actively engaged in this topic, they all have their own characteristics and challenges when it comes to sustainable transport. Therefore, every strategy and policy aimed at achieving zero emission transport is different.
On behalf of the Zero Emission Vehicles Policy Lab, APPM conducted an international comparison between three global frontrunners in electric transport: The Netherlands, California and Shenzhen. The report focuses on three types of transport, namely passenger cars, freight and logistics and ports. It highlights the similarities and differences between their policies and provides in-depth information on their ambitions and approach towards electric transport. Although all three frontrunners are successful in the field of electric transport, they can learn a lot from each other’s policies.
The presentation that was given during the digital mission ‘Smart & e-Mobility’ elaborates more on these lessons learned. The presentation can be downloaded here. The final report with the international comparison of the three frontrunners can be downloaded here.
