Public transport is playing an important role in Bergedorf’s modal split, thus it needs to be further developed in a sustainable manner. The first 10 e-buses will be deployed in 2019 in Hamburg-Bergedorf. Therefore, the bus depot of the public transportation company VHH has to be equipped with an adequate charging infrastructure and major changes to the main power supply became necessary. With regards to future developments, the local depot grid will be re-dimensioned completely to allow successive installation of charging infrastructure up to a fully electrified depot by 2030. In addition to this, an intelligent load management will be developed and implemented.

In terms of public charging infrastructure, by the end of 2019 the City of Hamburg will have about 600 charging points in the whole area of Hamburg in operation, thereof 24 AC charging stations in the Borough of Bergedorf and 18 in the project area. Also 1 DC charging station will be implemented in the project area.

In connection with the rapidly increasing number of electric vehicles and the simultaneous increase of charging points, site-related grid connection capacities will become increasingly important. An electrification of (public) fleets often is faced with inefficient grid capacities. The necessary expansion is usually cost intensive. This can be remedied by an intelligent charging technology, a so-called intelligent load management, which will be developed in the context of the project. In addition, the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences will build a clean energy charging station, with the possibility to use 100% green energy for e-cars and e-bikes.

Furthermore, the public authority vehicle fleet of the Borough of Bergedorf will be renewed and electrified. A community car sharing concept will be introduced and implemented in the project area in cooperation with a housing company and a local car sharing company. And in mySMARTLife, a fist concept for a local Logistic Micro Hub will be developed to reduce the parcel delivery traffic on the last mile of a delivery process.
