LowCVP Sustainable Urban Mobility Challenge 2012

First published in Cleantech magazine Issue 5, 2012

With over half of the world’s growing population living in urban environments, city transport is an increasingly acute challenge for city dwellers and governments alike. Cities suffer a particular problem in the form of air pollution. The LowCVP, however, set out to identify potential technology solutions to the low carbon challenge.

The LowCVP’s 2012 Technology Challenge, based around low carbon urban mobility ideas, aimed to accelerate the market introduction of new and innovative products and technologies, and to identify the most promising new ideas. It also aimed to provide an opportunity to emergent supply chain companies and technology developers, to promote themselves and add credibility to their low carbon urban mobility solutions.

At the 5th European Summit of Regions and Cities, taking place today and tomorrow in Copenhagen, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso pointed out that the economic, environmental, social and demographic challenges facing the world are problems focused in cities and exacerbated by the financial crisis.
