EMOTIF - Electromobility in Central Germany’s Countryside

In 2012 the Federal-Fund research project EMOTIF has been launched at the Erfurt University of Applied Sciences as the lead partner integrating German Rail’s carsharing service Flinkster,  tourist service and marketing organisations in Eisenach, Erfurt, Weimar and Jena represented by the Erfurt Tourism and Marketing Board (ETMG)  and the public-utility service providers in the cities of Eisenach, Erfurt (associated partner), Weimar  and Jena.

The first objective of the EMOTIF pilot project is to create a fully-persistent electric mobility supply in Thuringia based on rail including the “ICE” high-speed rail connections targeted foremost at tourists using both German Rail and its eCarsharing service Flinkster. Therefore, a system of carsharing stations and new charging infrastructure for battery-electric vehicles at railway stations and various tourist locations is required. These locations have been selected according to thorough evaluation predominantly based on tourist attractiveness, distance to central rail stations, and quality of public transport in order not to compete with high-quality public transport supply, especially high-speed rail connections. Four new eCarsharing stations - with two Citroen C Zero vehicles each- have been established at central rail stations in Eisenach, Erfurt, Weimar, and Jena.

The tasks carried out at the Erfurt University of Applied Sciences, Transport and Spatial Planning Institute include both project coordination and research aspects. The EMOTIF pilot project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure as integral part of the Federal Government’s approach of fostering EVs in Germany Modellregionen Elektromobilität combining strategies and efforts of several federal and state level ministries and administrations. The programme is coordinated by the National Organisation Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NOW) and managed by PTJ in Berlin.
