Video and presentations from «How to electrify all urban transport by 2030?» April 2nd 2019

In 2019 Oslo is the European Green Capital, thanks to – among other things – the Norwegian car market being electrified at a record pace. The next ambition for Oslo is to become a zero emission city in 2030 and to electrify all urban transportation – vans, trucks, buses, ferries and heavy contruction machines. In this breakfast seminar we presented inspiring electrification projects, electric vehicle news and outlined the next steps towards a completely emission free transport sector that will help provide healthy, green cities and minimize the urban climate footprint.

Where: Oslo, Kulturhuset
April 2nd 2019, 08:00-10:00

The seminar was streamed live on facebook and is available as a video here.

The seminar was part of a partner meeting in the Interreg project “Baltic Sea Region Electric”, where ZERO is a partner.
