Showcase Region Electric Mobility Saxony
The Showcase Region Electric Mobility Saxony has been one of eight showcase regions in Germany since 2009. The Federal Government provides financial support for comprehensive demonstration projects revolving around e mobility in Germany.
The following key topics undergo practical testing in the Showcase Region Electric Mobility Saxony: Fleet applications and the establishment of a strategic charging infrastructure; the development of energy storage systems; and electric mass transit.
When it comes to public transportation, Saxony uses one of the largest hybrid bus fleets in all of Germany. So far, the Showcase Region has met the demand for establishing the requisite charging infrastructure in public and semi-public places. Granting non-discriminatory access and billing the charging processes are the key elements of this project. With the construction of a test center for energy storage systems, research has been conducted on cost-optimized manufacturing processes for battery systems since 2011.
