Multimodal Mobility Stations
Within the Smarter Together project scope eight multimodal e-mobility stations were built within the project area of Neuaubing-Westkreuz and Freiham. In order to meet different needs the mobility stations connect different offers for individual mobility: rental bikes, e-bikes, e-tricycles (all MVG), e-car sharing (STATTAUTO) as well as charging stations for electric vehicles, supplying 100% green electricity (SWM). A digital information pillar displays all available mobility options in the area – including easy access to information about the offered local services and public transport as well as map
Vehicle Sharing Service in Mülheim
A car-sharing service is set up with a range of different vehicles to be able to cater for a variety of transport requirements in different situations. To completely be able not owning your own car it is necessary that car pools offer this choice of vehicle. An electric vehicle might be suitable for shorter trips in the city but when travelling longer distances with a big family an electric vehicle might not fit the needs and it is therefore important to offer alternatives.
This possibility has been put together by Cambio. Integration of various vehicle sharing alternatives

Mobility Station in Mülheim
Mobility hubs will provide commuters and residents with a location, where you can easily find various kinds of transport, such as trams, trains, buses, taxis, (e-)car-sharing, (e-)bike-sharing and parking lots with online management of parking spaces. Additionally, the mobility station can be used for charging electric vehicles.
There will be a possibility for the urban administration to regulate inner-city traffic by adjusting prices according to demand and capacity. Mobility stations provide access to a range of transport options, improving the flexibility of urban mobility and reducing

4. Replacement of existing lighting with LED lamps:
Biedronka saves 82% on energy costs with Smart Lampposts
By installing Omniflow's Smart IoT Lamppole, Biedronka saved an impressive 82 % of electric energy when compared to normal LED lighting systems or 97% compared to old technology lighting.
The lighting units are managed remotely by an Internet of Things software, are powered by wind and solar energy, and have a built-in energy storage battery to further reduce any reliance on the grid. When batteries are depleted, consumption switches to take energy from the grid.

Standard & Technical Details: 2.5km of piping, 8.2 MW heat and 1.6 MW of electricity biomass plant.
The solution is changing steam pipes to district heating based on water as energy transmitter. The power is supplied via a biomass power plant owned by the municipality. Pipes can be used with any other water based heat production system. The biomass power plant is fueled by the waste of public green spaces.
Distribution Systems Area Data Monitoring in Italy
This pilot project aimed to find new and innovative technological solutions to promote the integration of renewable energy sources (RES) and distributed generation (DG) in smart grid systems. In particular, the purpose was to develop, implement and test in field innovative devices to demonstrate the technical feasibility of increasing the monitoring of the distribution grid and the controllability of RES connected at lower voltage levels. DG and RES do not currently participate in real-time management of the grid and so to enable DG to become active players in the electricity system, it is necessary
New heating network
As part of the HeatNet North West Europe Interreg project, Aberdeen City Council is completing a pilot project in Torry. An existing district heating network within this area currently serves three multi-storey blocks. The pilot will expand this existing network, linking in three municipal buildings. In 2002 Aberdeen City Council formed a separate not for profit company to provide combined heat and power (CHP) schemes in Aberdeen. Carbon emissions from these buildings have reduced by 45% and typical fuel costs to tenants have been reduced by up to 50% over the previous electric

Public bike sharing system in Tartu
As of 2021, the bike sharing system consists of 750 bikes in 69 bike docks across the city and was launched on 8 June 2019. About 2/3 are electric and the remaining are regular bikes. New bikes and bike stations are added annually and the system has already expanded to nearby municipalities as well.
In order to rent a bike, the user must have a valid Tartu bus season ticket, or they must purchase a bike sharing membership. The user must create a bike share account, either online (ratas.tartu.ee) or via the mobile app (Tartu Smart Bike) and connect it to a credit card. As technical support

Geospatial Analysis for EV Infrastructure Planning
Electric Vehicle (EV) utilisation is growing at an extremely rapid rate, as more people become aware of the benefits, the technology becomes more competitive with traditional ICE vehicle, and the designs of the EV's become more fashionable. However, the infrastructure required to support the current - and predicted - forecasts of EV ownership is not in place, and rates of implementation are not high enough; recent reports in the UK suggested up to 40,000 more EV chargepoints (EVCP) a month needed to be installed to support the transition from ICE.
One of the main factors around stalled EVCP
