The University of Brussels, the scientific partner of the department of Environment of Flanders, has been collecting data from the nine partner regions regarding natural, physical and geographical characteristics, demographic, energy, economic and mobility indicators. After collecting the necessary information from each region, a descriptive cross-regional analysis was appropriate to identify those properties that make a region unique and might form an indicator for effectiveness of past or future policy instruments regarding the uptake of electric vehicles.

The European benchmark was given every time to situate the regions’ performances within a broader context, representing an idea of the average value.The conclusions of the Regional context analysis will create deeper insights in which policy instruments will or will not work in any of the regions. The Regional context analysis will therefore play a key role in developing the Action plans of every region.  

The final draft of the analysis will be presented to the partners during the international partner meeting in Slovenia.
