Hanover.The micromobility expo shows how the mobility turnaround can succeed. Urban logistics, sustainability, safe traffic space as well as micromobility and urban development - these are just some of the topics of the upcoming event from 19 to 21 May 2022 in Hannover. In addition to the exhibition programme and the test track of the micromobility expo, industry-specific speakers will offer answers to the challenges of tomorrow's mobility in the conference section. The focus of the conference is on socially and environmentally compatible mobility, taking into account the current challenges of pandemic conditions. The conference formats range from pitch to fishbowl to panel discussion.
The first speakers have confirmed their participation, including Prof. Dr. Stephan Rammler, Scientific Director of micromobility-expo partner IZT - Institute for Futures Studies and Technology Assessment. His topic is the mobility of the future. According to Rammler, it is necessary to combine sustainability, social justice and economic efficiency: "It's about reinventing mobility for the 21st century."
Stephan Boelte, Regional General Manager of Voi Technology, brings in the idea of a "15 Minute City" and explains what contribution micromobility can make to this. Boelte pleads for a strong and coordinated contribution to the transport turnaround in order to provide people with climate-friendly mobility.
Mascha Katharina Brost will speak about light electric vehicles. The project manager of the DLR (German Aerospace Centre) has shown the great potential of Light Electric Vehicles (LEV) for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector with the study "LEV4Climate".
Dr. Daniela Wühr, specialist for mobility behaviour and trend research at the ADAC (Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club), will be talking about e-scooters. Wühr deals with the question of whether e-scooters represent an opportunity for intermodality or are rather seen as a risky mobility trend.
Especially in urban traffic, cargo bikes are increasingly gaining acceptance. One expert in this field is Lars Wichmann, founder and managing director of the cargo bike shop Velogold in Hanover. Wichmann is part of the successful sharing project "HANNAH - Lastenräder für Hannover", an initiative of ADFC (Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrrad-Club) and Velogold, which enables the free loan of cargo bikes at changing locations. The aim of the initiative is to offer 200 cargo bikes in 20 months in the Hannover region, which people can share in different ways.
The Bundesverband eMobilität (BEM) is committed in the long term to converting mobility in Germany to electric mobility with the use of renewable energies. BEM board member Markus Emmert sees micromobility and light vehicles as the foundation for a successful transport transition.
Iona Freise, Head of Cities Germany at TIER Mobility, provides new approaches to counter irresponsible parking of e-scooters with the help of new technologies. Intelligent networking of different modes of transport and public transport services is important for easy access to a more sustainable form of mobility.
"Mobility as a Service and Data Intelligence" is the topic of Robert Sugar, visualisation expert and founder of Urban Hawk Data Intelligence Limited. The British company analyses spatial situational awareness in real-time applications and covers rail, shipping and smart cities across Europe.
