NEUE WEGE - Ways of sustainable mobility in Lower Saxony - Expert workshops in September and November

In two thematically linked digital workshops, the ways of sustainable mobility in Lower Saxony will be discussed in the context of the project "New Ways" on behalf of the Lower Saxony Ministry for Environment, Energy, Construction and Climate Protection.

The first specialist workshop on 23.9.2020 from 10:00 to 14:45 (programme linked) focuses on the central field of action of creating a demand-oriented and network-oriented charging infrastructure for electric mobility. In order to address the complex field of action of creating charging infrastructure as comprehensively as possible, experts from the energy industry, the automotive industry, the housing industry and local authorities will outline practical challenges. The 3connect project will be presented and discussed as an example in the specialist workshop.

In an introductory presentation, the Minister for the Environment, Energy, Construction and Climate Protection Olaf Lies and the Head of the National Control Centre Charging Infrastructure Dipl.-Geogr. Johannes Pallasch, MBA (NOW GmbH) will give an 'assessment of the current situation' regarding sector coupling and charging infrastructure in Germany and Lower Saxony.

Registrations for the workshop I are possible here.


The second workshop on 5.11.2020 from 10:00 to 14:45 (programme linked) will deal with the central field of action of the integration of hydrogen in the overall energy system and thus also in the transport sector.

In his open letter to Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier, Environment Minister Lies emphasizes: "Due to its location and energy infrastructure, Lower Saxony can make a significant contribution to establishing itself as a strong building block (...) for hydrogen technologies and applications. With the recently adopted hydrogen strategy, the Federal Government is also sending a clear signal to establish hydrogen as an alternative energy carrier, to further develop the transport and distribution infrastructure and to actively support the necessary transformation processes.

In the second part of this workshop, approaches and challenges for the use of hydrogen on the road, rail and in public transport will be highlighted in short impulses from practice. The interactive part of the event will provide time for an intensive exchange and discussion with the audience.

Registration for Workshop II is possible here.
