Alpe-Adria clean transport alliance (AaCTA)

Bringing local and regional decision-makers together across borders to work together on effective plans for the expansion/conversion towards electrification of road traffic.

The aim of the project is to help local and regional decision makers in creating and implementing effective plans for strengthening the infrastructure for electrification of road transport across the region. Through addressing different issues of electrification in public and private road transport, including urban planning, funding of pilot actions, green public purchase and providing scientific basis for embedment of the transport electrification in broader picture of energy transition, the project raises capacity of decision-makers to propose and implement effective plans for climate and energy actions on local and regional level. To achieve the desired capacity building, especially in smaller communities with limited resources, the project will implement series of events, workshops and tutorials, providing materials and tools for decision-makers that will remain on their disposal and aid them in drafting new SUMPs, SECAPs and organization of green public purchases.
