    The World Tourism Organization refers that sustainable tourism should take full account of its current and future economic, social, and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities. Based on these guidelines, the Alpine and Adriatic regions have implemented sustainable tourism strategies focused on showing their culture, landscapes, and histories. However, Covid-19, issues with air transport, and lack of public transport have increased tourism by private cars (more than 80 % of the modal split) thus contributing to the overall CO2 and noise emissions.
    Considering these major challenges for the Alpine and Adriatic regions, we have designed a solution to integrate sustainable mobility technologies; electric vehicles (EV) and e-bicycles focused on developing a 1. Comprehensive and reliable EV and bicycle charging infrastructure for tourist, citizens, public transport, and businesses, 2. Accessible electric bicycles, 3. Efficient use of renewable energy and grid stability, and 4. Digitalization of touristic routes and hospitality.
    The implementation requires community engagement and proactive approach towards creating a better understanding about all the pros of sustainable living by its leaders. Our aim is to reduce emissions from the transport (public and private), protect the environment, promote sustainable tourism, reduce transportation costs, increase the use of renewable energy, develop micro grids to stabilize the grid network, develop smart and digitalised tourism, and – more importantly – to create a better-quality life for people around tourism.
    Our project lays a foundation in the potential transformation of any major city and its rural areas’ tourism infrastructure. For instance, tourists who drive an EV will be welcome to visit the regions without concerns that their EVs will run out of battery allowing them to enjoy bicycle ride, a local meal, or a drink. Also, unpleasant noise and the discomfort of smelling pollutants would be reduced to near zero. Everyone in the region would benefit from better air in a better city.
    The short and mid-term goal of our EV charging infrastructure and cyclist routs project is also to increase the participation of business in green initiatives; tourism – Slovenia Green certification scheme, construction – Net zero certification schemes, or cultural – Climate mitigation in heritage buildings. Thus, it is expected that cleaner cities will attract more people, bring business interest, and boost a sustainable local economy.
    This project is also focused on renewable energy management and grid stability. For instance, the renewable energy produced should be first consumed, then stored in batteries; and the grid should only be used when there is not enough renewable energy available. The system should create a harmonisation between the supply (renewable energy and grid) and the demand (i.e. EV chargers, electric bicycles, heat pumps, lighting, internet connected devices) without exceeding the grid capacity.
    The implementation and management of the infrastructure will be executed by experts in facility and energy infrastructure management. All local requirements will be considered when deploying the wholesome solutions covering all steps from initial installation to regular maintenance.
    In addition, the project will enable you to reap the benefits of becoming a smarter region. For instance, the impact on the air quality being monitored, analysis of the increased use of bicycles, efficient and alternative routes that could save time and resources, and, last but not the least, efficient utilization of the infrastructure (i.e. EV chargers) when combining it with other services (rental e-cars, e-bikes, e-scooters).
    The same model can be replicated in cities, buildings, commercial properties, and industries; therefore, we are looking for a pioneer in smart mobility to implement this project together. Setting up a benchmark and leading the market to follow will enable you to have a major impact in global communities and the environment.

    I am an energy eng., assistant prof. at Politecnico di Torino (Energy Dept.) working mainly on the New Energy Carriers, such as Battery Electric Vehicles and Hydrogen. The topics that we are covering here in our lab. are related to:
    – Lithium-ion battery, characterization under normal operation and abuse conditions, such as stressing the battery to cause thermal runaway with electrical, thermal and mechanical abuse/characterization in terms of temperature, pressure, gas analysis, etc.
    – possibility of testing other types of batteries, such as solid-state batteries, etc.
    – suppression of fires in a test bench using spray water mist system
    – Testing and modeling of hydrogen safety in compressed gas storage tanks
    – Modeling of NEC in tunnel and study of ventilation strategy

    Hi Luka

    I am writing on behalf of GAL Molise verso 2000, situated in region of Molise (Italy).
    GAL is a limited liability consortium company founded in 1994 with the aim of designing, implementing and managing initiatives in the field of Local, National and European development.

    Our working group has certified experience in the sector also and above all regarding European projects.
    I propose as we could offer technical assistance and coordination service for the development of project.
    In this specific case we could take care of organizing and publicizing the event, involving experts and the population, in such a way as to make the topic known as much as possible; especially if there are other Italian parters.

    For further info you can contact the following addresses:

    Hi Luka,
    My name is Tsvetomira Aleksandrova. I am writing to you on behalf of Svilengrad Municipality.
    I read your description of the project and it seems very interesting for our organisation.
    We implemented a lot of projects in the field of energy efficiency and now we are searching for an opportunity for its management.
    The idea for the electric bikes is also very near to us.
    So if you are still searching for a partner from Bulgaria, please let me know!

    Have a great day!

    Dear Luka,

    I am writing to you on behalf of the Local Energy Agency Pomurje (LEA Pomurje), based in Slovenia. We find your project idea very interesting and the activities very necessary for our rural area, where the emphasis is on tourism. Pomurje is becoming an increasingly interesting region for e-cyclists, a new bicycle park is under construction, where we could perhaps combine some kind of pilot investment. Also, in LEA Pomurje we are now gaining experience and will test the V2B system in combination solar power plant – batteries – electric car.

    LEA Pomurje (Slovenia) is a regional organization that takes care for promotion and acceleration of the continuous improvement of energy efficiency and speeds up the deployment of renewable energy sources usage in the region with the aim to maximize the local energy self-sufficiency of the region. The basic guidelines of operation and implementation of activities is the promotion of RES (renewable energy sources) and RUE (efficient use of energy) as well as environmental protection at all levels and following the requirements and guidelines at the international, national and regional level in the field of energy. LEA Pomurje is increasingly realizing its set goals to become a key programming, implementation, negotiation and representative institution in field of enforcement of RES and RUE and sustainable development of the region.
    Our closed and present activities and projects can be roughly classified into three groups: (1) Projects for the preparation of strategic documents in the field of the energy in Pomurje, as well as in micro-areas; (2) Project and activities for implementation of strategic documents; (3) Projects financed from various EU programs, such as Horizon 2020, Interreg Danube, Interreg MED, Interreg Central Europe, …
