Abstract

The Showcase Region for Electric Mobility LivingLab BWe mobil takes place in the two largest cities of Baden-Wuerttemberg in the south-west of Germany. The results of large-scale regional government-funded demonstration projects are described in this paper. Electric mobility works in various use cases and different types of vehicles, but economic feasibility is still a challenge in some use cases. For this reason continuous R&D activities are needed and appropriated legal frameworks help to overcome obstacles and offer incentives.
