  • National plans set the framework (E-Mob implementation plan, ITS-plan,...)

  • Climate and energy fund develops strategie(s) based on the framework

  • E-Mobility Flagships are embedded in the (E-)Mobility strategy of the climate and energy fund

  • E-Mobility Flagships have a clear focus on R&D(and on demonstration of R&D results developed within the project)

Evidence and impact
Evidence and Impact

  • External evaluation by Prognos AG (Berlin)

  • Empirical basis of evaluation

  • Additional interviews highlight background and help with interpretation

Significant increase of trl prognos 2013
Significant increase of TRL(Prognos, 2013)



  • Agglomeration arr. TRL 7/8  50% of 72 (sub)projects

  • App 20% (14) reach TRL9 (marketable)

  • 11% noprogress in TRL, but high starting point

  • Only 3 (sub)projects show discrepancy to goals

  • 2 (sub)projects exceed goals

Scenario for potential of co 2 reduction prognos 2013
Scenario for potential of CO2-reduction(Prognos, 2013)

Scenarios of Co2-emissions in the Austrian Motorized Private Transportation

  • Political intervention can reach a high effect

  • CO2-reduction as effect of substitution of conventional power engines

Model regions of e mobility
Model regions of E-mobility

  • Three pillars:

    • Demonstration of market ready technology

    • Installation of charging stations

    • Testing of business models

Facts about the model regions
Facts about the Model regions

  • € 17.2 m funding volume

  • Number of electro vehicles on the road (8 model regions)

  • Promotion of electro vehicles for private and commercial usage

  • Realising the total potential of GHG-reduction by using only renewable energy

New progr. are implemented…

  • Urban E-mobility

    • € 6m

  • CE Model regions

    • € 1.5m

      … details are not specified yet!

Current progr. are continued…

  • Flagship projects

    • focus on R&D

    • € 4m funding

  • Model regions

    • Market implementation

    • € 1m


  • funding instruments have to be coordinated

  • Smart funding instruments can push the topic

  • R&D and real life tests are essential (mission oriented)

  • E-Mobility is (almost) market ready (TRL up to 8-9)

  • E-Mobility is NOT a 1:1 substitute for existing mobility

  • E-Mobility provides the opportunity to re-invent mobility

  • E-Mobility needs new applications and business models

  • Fleet- and shared use application are promising markets
