Replication Webinar Series: E-bikes

16/06/2020

Eurocities is hosting a series of replication and scale-up webinars with Sharing Cities. 

Join us for the second webinar about improving urban mobility with e-bike sharing on 30 June 2020, 11:00 - 12:15 CEST

This webinar on e-bike sharing will explore different types of implementation schemes through two case studies from lighthouse cities. Tools for replication, scale-up and implementation in other cities will also be presented. After the presentations, we invite all participants to join the discussion, ask questions and share their experiences. We are looking forward to an engaging exchange!

Why E-bikes?

Sharing Cities tested city-led docked electric bike share schemes (e-bikes) and a rental model. E-bikes are fitted with an electric motor which allows for power assistance while you pedal. They are a key part of a sustainable and holistic mobility solution in cities. E-bikes can be integrated with regular bike share, or as flexible, longer-term rental schemes to encourage modal shift from cars. Private sector companies have been rushing to introduce ‘dockless’ (or free-floating) e-bike/bike sharing schemes into cities. However, these schemes can sometimes be short lived. City-led, docked e-bike schemes can provide a longer-term solution to mobility.

About this event

Since 2016, the lighthouse cities of Lisbon, London and Milan have implemented ten smart city measures in the framework of the project Sharing Cities. Based on this knowledge and technical experience, Sharing Cities is launching a series of short technical webinars to explore the measures one by one: digital social market, e-bikes, building retrofit, sustainable energy management system, smart lampposts, e-mobility, and urban sharing platform. Each measure is also supported by a smart booklet and playbook which go into greater detail on how to replicate and scale-up the solution in your city.

Sharing Cities

The Sharing Cities ‘lighthouse’ project is a testbed for finding better, common approaches to making smart cities a reality. By fostering international collaboration between industry and cities, the project aims to develop affordable, integrated, commercial-scale smart city solutions with high market potential. Sharing Cities is a part of a family of projects that make up the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP SCC01 – Lighthouse Projects).
