Intermodal Mobility Hubs

The transportation sector is responsible for 28 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, the bulk of which (60 percent) are produced by personal mobility. One option to decrease the environmental impact of personal mobility is the seamless integration of different modes of transport using mobility hubs.

Urban Farming

The global agriculture has a high environmental impact (30 percent of global emissions). Among others, this is mainly the case due to the long supply chains - a reduction of the distances offers an attractive option for a decarbonized food distribution.

Drone Delivery System

Delivery trucks for parcels are a noticeable part of urban traffic that can be reduced by implementing a drone delivery system. As the market for deliveries is significantly and steadily growing, especially due to the increasing options in online shopping, this becomes even more relevant.

Virtual Power Plant

The increasing usage of renewable energy raises the risk of unpredictable energy generation drops or peaks. A virtual power plant reduces these risks by aggregating several small production units.

Use Cases

Use Cases are real-world implemented solutions that give valuable insights and serve as points of reference for their replication.
The information of each Use Case entails a list of achieved benefits, driving factors, financial information, and recommendations for their replications. You can also contact the BABLE members who participated in the implementation and management of the project.
