    1. Last week Stefka Wiese from GreenGasDrive was with us. The startup wants to make GreenCNG available nationwide for public and private fleet customers in the CNG filling station network. It should be made climate neutral, especially from waste biogas. In addition, GreenGasDrive advises on upcoming investment decisions and utilization optimization

    1. The DIGINET-PS research project involves the development and implementation of a connected urban infrastructure test field along a stretch of Straße des 17. Juni between Ernst-Reuter Platz and the Brandenburg Gate, designed to advance and validate automated and autonomous driving and its broad range of individual areas under real-life traffic circumstances. The test infrastructure is intended to provide central, regional and supra-regional companies and R&D institutes with the opportunity to field test automated driving within an authentic urban setting. This will establish Germany’s first pilot project to build a digital test field for automated driving in highly complex traffic situations. DIGINET-PS will contribute to implementing Berlin’s smart city strategy in the area of mobility and will also support the state’s Digital Agenda.

    1. The research project eMobility-Scout deals with the conceptualization, implementation and testing of a cloud-based IT solution for the operation of electric vehicles and for sharing charging infrastructures among different businesses. In doing so, eMobility-Scout is considering the interest shown by many companies and institutions for simple and smart integration of electric vehicles into their fleets. Solutions for diverse areas of application in commercial mobility are being developed and tested, while taking logistical, economic and ecological aspects into account. Experienced project partners and affiliates, as well as renowned end users, are contributing extensive knowledge to the project. The results of the research project for IKT EM III should also gain substantial recognition in the public sphere.

    1. A fully integrated logistics concept to establish environment and climate friendly supply chains in urban districts is going to evolve from the project. Co-creation processes, which are supported by online tools, are being used to develop the concept. The development and testing of sustainable business and deployment models is the goal of Distribut(e) and this will be addressed through the development of a shared e-logistics system in Klausenerplatz and at Mierendorff-Insel. The system will relate to a specific district (Kiez) in Berlin. A digital dialogue platform will be set up for the purpose of ordering local goods and for the booking of cargo bikes. Other low-threshold service offerings will be developed using Urban Design Thinking and will be integrated into the operating model.Focus Areas Integrated shared e-logistics at Mierendorff-Insel and at KlausenerplatzUrban Design Thinking: Formats for the co-creation process for sustainable urban district logisticsEfficiency enhancement in the delivery of goods in the ‘last mile’Mobile and online participation: Promotion of local production chains and activation of local stakeholders such as small to medium sized companies and local residentsIdentification of new sharing and value-in-use conceptsHigher standards in terms of the transparency, sovereignty, security and efficiency of data on the online platform
