Sabrina Medaglia, responsible for the European Projects Department of the Province of Brescia: “For years we have been promoting e-mobility as a real revolution in the field of mobility. This revolution brings together multiple aspects: widespread environmental awareness, smart cities and ICT development, different conception of sustainable mobility and vehicle ownership, and transformation of energy production systems. Within this framework, we are quite active in multiple projects and initiatives at local, regional, national and international levels, such as the e-MOPOLI project, involving our local and regional stakeholders. 

As Province of Brescia, we aggregate and coordinate our municipalities in tenders and calls for funding aimed at the installation of charging spots, promoted by Lombardy Region and by the Ministry of Environment, with the purpose to boost sustainable mobility across our territory. As a member of Lombard Mobility Cluster Association (CLM), Brescia Province’s main objectives in the field of emobility are the development of a charging network supporting the circulation of electric and hybrid plug-in vehicles, and the diffusion of an efficient infrastructure that adequately covers private and public access to recharge. 

Concerning the e-MOPOLI project, that started in June 2018 and of which the Province is the lead partner, we have planned a series of activities with 8 international partners, including the exchange of good practices in the field of electric and alternative fuel mobility and the implementation of an action plan to improve the policy instrument of the Regional Operational Programme (ROP) 2014-2020, in close collaboration with Lombardy Region, the ROP Managing Authority." 

In another European project e-MOTICON, co-financed by Interreg Alpine Space Programme 2014-2020, the Province of  Brescia is the coordinator of the e-HUB pilot action. Sabrina Medaglia continues: “Thanks to our experience and cooperation with international partners, we created a model help-desk which will be used as a concrete tool by our municipalities and stakeholders, to share information and initiatives in the field of e-mobility and charging spots. We are now setting up the virtual tool of the help-desk”
