Even though e-mobility diffusion is increasing in Alpine Space (AS) countries, with 66.583 publicly accessible Electric Charging Stations (E-CS) and 594.042 e-vehicles registered in 2018, in order to ease a wider diffusion of e-mobility and its innovative modalities, Public Administrations (PA) should address e-mobility applied to Local Public Transport (LPT) and to City/Last-Mile Freight Logistic (LML) in synergy with private e-mobility and energy integration. Key barriers are represented by the lack of coordination among public and private actors, lack of a participatory approach based on smart territory, an extended smart city logic, and lack of energy and mobility networks integration in the deployment of e-mobility in LPT&LML. Moreover, PA’s competences on energy and smart grid functionalities and digitalization topics should be increased. e-SMART, built on e-MOTICON results, will activate cooperation among PAs and e-mobility and energy operators through LIVING LAB. It will lead, through a ROAD MAP for AS decision makers, to a common approach in development of e-mobility services in LPT & in LML and in planning of adequate E-CS network for entire AS. It will design and test a set of transnational operational instruments for public and private technicians to plan e-mobility infrastructure and services in passengers and freight transports in the framework of smart grid and smart territories: a TOOLKIT. PAs and private sector will benefit from cooperation with research centres & e-mobility users through transnational Living Lab, based on quadruple helix approach. They will collaborate on a common definition of the Road map and on testing appropriate innovative measures of e-mobility applied to LPT&LML, overcoming local approaches. Cooperation model of Living lab will be replicable in all AS countries, Road Map and Toolkit will guide a common transnational approach and method for national, regional and local PA Energy and Mobility Strategic Plans improvement.
