USER-CHI peer learning programme is open – become a Berlin fellow city!

Through the USER-CHI peer learning programme, we are recruiting fellow cities who are willing to learn, exchange and further develop their e-Mobility plans based on the experience and lessons learnt from the USER-CHI demonstrator cities. Opportunities for peer learning with all demonstrator cities will be made public throughout the end of 2021.

We are now recruiting 2 cities to become Berlin fellow cities.

Why become a Berlin fellow city?

  • Do you want to learn about the Berlin model, a successful approach for the deployment of new electric charging points in the city?
  • Do you wish to exchange with other Berlin experts on how to motivate private users to shift to more sustainable and alternative, electric modes of transport?
  • Would you like hands-on experience with Berlin’s incentives for commercial and e-car sharing fleets to become electric?
  • Would you like to explore how you can join forces with housing companies to make electric mobility an appealing alternative for residents, as Berlin is doing?

You will have the chance to discuss this and much more by joining the USER-CHI peer learning programme and becoming a Berlin fellow city!
