MOBEGA. ELECTRIC MOBILITY PLAN OF GALICIA
Topic of the practice
Demonstration plan promoting electric vehicle
Good Practice Information
MOBEGA, an electric mobility plan, brings together both public and private resources to encourage the use of electric vehicles in Galicia. Rather than search for an elusive business model, the project is fostering regional R&D. The objectives are:
• To foster cooperation between public and private stakeholders for further development of electric vehicle infrastructures and technologies
• To improve the network of regional infrastructures for electric vehicle recharging
• To disseminate and promote the use of electric vehicles among final users.
At the end of 2012 the government of Galicia (Junta de Galicia) constituted a board of members to develop a regional electro mobility plan to foster an integrated plan for infrastructures and the use of electric vehicles in the region. The board of members also includes the PSA Peugeot-Citröen Group, the Galician Automotive Industries Cluster (CEAGA), EnergyLab, Gas Natural Fenosa, Indra, and BlueMobility Systems. CEAGA drives the demonstration plan MOBEGA directed to promote the use of the electric vehicle in the main Galician cities cooperating with the Regional Government. BlueMobility Systems is the company that builds the infrastructure to recharge electric vehicles and manages a fleet of electric vehicles for rent. The MOBEGA Plan allows users to rent the cars for a reduced price to foster the use of electric vehicles.
Evidence of success
Construction of 7 Multifunctional Electro Stations for recharging (including fast charge -20 min. for 80% of battery) and renting electric vehicles.
28 electric cars for rent at low market price.
70% of users value the experience between 7 and 10 in a 1-10 scale.
48% of vehicles use for urban transport; 52% for interurban and road transport.
