PROMOTER enables EU to achieve its climate neutrality and re-power, by pursuing innovative decarbonised mobility, thus contributing to a greener territorial quality.
To contribute this change, it promotes green energy hub-production at local level supporting sustainable transport.
As prices for clean energy and storage technologies continue to fluctuate and regions explore ways to reduce emissions and dependency from fossil fuel and currently from foreign sources, integrating higher shares of renewable energies is becoming more urgent and complex.
While the watchword of the pandemic was “distancing”, “proximity” thus imposes itself in the aftermath; energy management linked with mobility management, increasing role of energy sustainable local communities (engaged in both production & consumption), hub digital infrastructure to monitor and guide energy performance production and consumption trends, can all play their role.
In order to get away from a logic of emergency, foster balanced diversification and reduce emissions and diseconomies, the project contributes to them by connecting together a "most appropriate use of public and/or private assets for hubs ", “energy generation from sustainable sources” (solar, hydrogen, wind, biomass, geothermal and others) and its related distribution patterns, with “urban and peri-urban mobility” thus effectively addressing the “proximity” social inclusion.
The approach to improve the energy governance to feed green mobility issue, within the policies addressed by the partners, is to:
A. identify their “drivers and barriers” to the issue being pursued
B. document and share Good Practices and policy experiences regarding: technology, financial, normative & regulatory aspects, organisational management, community empowerment
C. promote policy solutions capable of improving the delivery of regional development policies and making them more effective and sustainable.
