Each semester, around the time of the semiannual steering committee, the PROMETEUS team wants to present the host of the meeting. We want to start off this series with Transport Malta, our project lead partner.
Transport Malta is a Maltese government agency created to promote and develop the transport sector in Malta by means of proper regulation. The Malta National Electromobility Platform is a joint initiative between the Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects and Transport Malta.
The launching of the Malta National Electromobility Platform (MNEP) is a cornerstone in the Government’s policy on the electrification of transport. Representation in the MNEP cuts across almost all sectors of the economy. The MNEP is committed to promote a change in culture of how we look at mobility and transportation in general. This ranges from instilling the concept of eco-driving to planning one’s journey from point of departure to point of destination. Electromobility represents the concept of using electric power train technologies, in-vehicle information, and communication technologies and connected infrastructures to enable the electric propulsion of vehicles and fleets. Malta’s objective is to be a net beneficiary and receiver of this technology. On a per capita basis, it is also in the interest of the automotive industry to facilitate market uptake of this technology in Malta.
