Priorities within the funding programme “Erneuerbar Mobil” (“Renewable Mobility”) are, on the one hand, field tests in the application areas of automobiles and economic traffic, both of which exhibit high potential for effectively reducing CO2-emissions. On the other hand, the programme prioritises plans of coupling energy needs of vehicles with the use of renewable energies and focuses on research concerning the development of energy system services. Both areas also take aspects of urban planning into consideration. Another target area is the support of market introduction of electric vehicles according to environmental support measures.

VDI/VDE-IT functions as responsible partner in configuration/design of tenders and projects, implementation of the funding measure as well as concomitant activities such as public relations.
