Abstract

In 2009, the Stuttgart Region of Baden-Württemberg in Germany was awarded funding from the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development (BMVBS) as one of eight “E-Mobility Pilot Regions” and started to implement several projects—from 2 wheelers to buses, including the development of full electrical vehicles (e.g. Vito E-Cell). Meanwhile, Stuttgart Region’s LivingLab BWe mobil in April 2012 became one of four national “E-Mobility showcase regions” for 3 years, and is also hosting the “Leading Edge Cluster Electric Mobility South-West”. The LivingLab BWe mobil started 40 projects in and around the Stuttgart Region where the scale and scope is even broader than in the Pilot Region activities, including field tests of e-mobility business models. The more than 100 partners from business, science and public authorities are testing electric mobility in actual practice. In their activities the projects concentrate on the Stuttgart Region (Württemberg) and the city of Karlsruhe (Baden), and promote the visibility of their work right up to the international level. The project aims to put around 2000 electric vehicles on the road by 2015, and to install more than 1000 charging points. This paper highlights three select case studies on the projects Get eReady, Car2Go full electric and Stuttgart Services.
