HansE - Hamburg Metro Region To Expand E-Mobility

50 new charging points to be set up until 2018. Federal government to support infrastructure project with 1.6 million euro

The aim of the project is to create a coherent network of charging infrastructure for e-cars to promote zero-emission mobility in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region.

Electric Mobility In Urban And Rural Areas

Initially, scientists will determine regional traffic flows initially, to define priority areas for the power supply of electric cars. Also under explorations will be the need for e-car charging points in coming years, i.e. three, five, and ten years. In the implementation phase, stationary storage technologies are being implemented and tested. Thus, the project will face the challenges of the energy revolution – the load-dependent management of electricity networks – and answer them with innovative concepts. Project partners are the Office of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region, the district of Harburg (regional coordination and communication), the Institute for Urban Construction and Transport of RWTH Aachen (scientific management), E.ON Technologies GmbH (construction and operation of charging infrastructure), and hySOLUTIONS GmbH as project manager.

Electrification Of Regional Centres And and Traffic Axes

Norbert Barthle, Secretary of State at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure: “With our Electromobility Act, we have brought additional incentives for electric cars on the way. The task now is to improve the charging infrastructure. The expansion of electric mobility in cities and urban centers is progressing well, but rural areas cannot be neglected. To improve the charging infrastructure in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region by the HansE project is an important step for the electrification of regional centres and traffic axes. On German highways, the Federal Ministry of Transport supports the development of rapid charging stations at rest stops. “

Drivers Of Innovation In The Development Of Electric Mobility

Andreas Rieckhof, Secretary of State at the Department of Economics, Transport and Innovation of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg and chairman of the steering committee of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region, said: “Hamburg Metropolitan Region has the potential to become a driver of innovation in the development of electric mobility. We thank the federal government to have made this project possible by financially supported us in the development of an efficient network of charging infrastructure in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region. HansE is an excellent complement to the chosen path by the Hamburg Senate to advance the necessary expansion of the charging infrastructure and thus to eliminate one of the major obstacles to the implementation of electric mobility.”

Green Mobility Important For Economic Growth

Rainer Rempe, District Administrator of Harburg: “The politicians of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region regard electric mobility as the means of transport of tomorrow, boasting better intermodal networks and environmentally friendly technology. For a prosperous economic development in our region, sustainable mobility services are essential. The region-wide commuting demands an excellent co-ordination of rail traffic with individual forms of mobilty in its present and future forms. The current plans for charging infrastructure for electric cars will help us a lot. “
