polisMOBILITY Conference

"polisMOBILITY is the leading sector-spanning dialogue platform for the urban transport transition. It provides a central forum for decision makers from various industries and sectors and brings together the private economy and the public sector into a dialogue in order to promote holistic planning and action in relation to the key themes of "transition in drive systems and energy in urban areas", the "municipal mobility transition", and "local public transport & mobility services".

How can we design mobility to create the human-scale, sustainable city of tomorrow?

Focus and key issues of polisMOBILITY 2024

Urban drive system and energy transition

In order to master the transport transition, we face the challenge of converting drive systems to climate-neutral technologies. The success of the drive system transition is in turn dependent upon the conversion of our energy systems. In the urban space, this transition, for example, relating to the expansion of charging infrastructure, becomes an urban planning task that moves along the field of tension of public and private interests.

In the case of the drive system and energy transition, the conference in 2024 will focus on the following questions:

  • How can we be successful at the intersection of urban development, energy and transport transition in thinking in larger contexts and acting across sectors?
  • In which areas of the urban transport and energy transition do we use green hydrogen efficiently?
  • How do new technologies contribute to designing electromobility to be more sustainable and socially more acceptable?
  • How can we more quickly expand the urban charging infrastructure?
  • How does the role of the municipal utilities as local providers change in the process, and how can this new business field be opened up for them?
  • What challenges do municipalities and the private economy face when searching for/providing urban space?
  • How are the roles and business areas of mineral oil corporations, OEMs and the municipal energy economy changing in the context of the objective of decarbonisation?
  • How can we politically navigate the necessary transformation in the drive system and energy transition in the right direction? What public-private partnerships can be established, in the context of which both groups of stakeholders can emphasise their strengths and come up with solutions aimed at the common good?

Day 2 | 23.05.2024

Local public transport & mobility services

The avoidance of MIV's and the shift to the EcoMobility Alliance offers the chance to reconceive of urban space: while the street is being redistributed in favour of pedestrians and cyclists, the local public transport system must face the expansion of the infrastructure in the context of running operations. Shared mobility, on-demand and last mile logistics meanwhile point out the way to a digitally networked future. At the intersection, we address questions of the common good-oriented control of these growing markets and integration into an intermodal transport system of the future.

  • Where is the industry after one year of the Deutschlandticket? • What new sales models & sources of financing open up for local public transport? • How is the role of the transport associations changing?
  • What digital infrastructures are required to link local public transport, on-demand transport and shared mobility? • Who will win the race for a nationwide MaaS platform across providers?
  • How can public transport associations and private providers optimally complement one another in order to expand the mobility offering in the city suburbs? What are the current developments and potential with regard to on-demand and autonomous shuttles?
  • What political control measures are required to ensure that these growing markets of the future result in user-oriented mobility solutions that serve the common good in the interests of the provision of public services?
  • How do we prioritise, finance and accelerate the expansion of infrastructures for the EcoMobility Alliance: from rail networks through the building of roads and cycling paths to mobility hubs? • What goal images does transport route planning require?
  • What scope of action in the designing of urban conversion in the interests of mobility and to create human scale districts do municipalities have, and how can they be expanded?
  • How can sustainable, efficient and space-saving city logistics be ensured in times of booming e-commerce?
  • What national and international innovations and best practices are there, and how can we transfer them to our cities?

Statement Johannes Busmann, Managing Partner polis Convention GmbH

"The guiding principles of the car-oriented and function-oriented city have determined the premises of urban planning for many decades. Against the backdrop of global technological developments in digitalisation, artificial intelligence and energy storage, we are now on the threshold of a "mobility-friendly" city that will open up completely new possibilities for us to design a sustainable and liveable city. With polisMOBILITY, we want to accompany this change and be a partner in the dialogue between business, science, politics and urban society."
