Sustainable travel - the capital region builds on electromobility

Electromobility is booming and the capital region is far ahead in a national comparison when it comes to the conversion to clean drives.

The number of newly registered e-cars in Berlin-Brandenburg has increased rapidly in 2020/21, which is not least due to attractive funding opportunities from the federal and state governments. In the first two months of 2021, e-cars accounted for around a quarter of new registrations. In addition, the capital region has the largest publicly accessible charging infrastructure in Germany.

eMO, the Berlin agency for electromobility

 As a state agency and part of the Berlin Partner business development agency, eMO supports the ramp-up of electromobility and the piloting and dissemination of sustainable mobility solutions. In close cooperation with the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Operations, eMO is the central point of contact for companies and organisations implementing activities and projects in the context of the transport transition within the capital region. eMO networks with suitable cooperation partners in Berlin and Brandenburg, acts as an interface to the Berlin administration and helps with implementation issues.

Value creation and quality of life

From the perspective of economic development, eMO supports the mobility transition in the capital region and helps to implement best practice solutions in a sustainable manner. eMO acts as a driver, networker and competence provider in order to identify, pilot and evaluate innovation potentials and finally bring them into implementation. Mobility is not only becoming a factor in creating value for individual companies, it is also becoming cleaner, safer, and more sustainable overall.
