Public transport is to be playing an important role in Bergedorf’s modal split, thus it needs to be further developed in a sustainable manner. The bus lines serve the central part of the high-performance district. Five 12-meter and other five 18-meter articulated buses will be deployed in Hamburg-Bergedorf. With the aim to equip the bus depot of the public transportation company VHH with charging infrastructure for 10 e-buses, 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.

Regarding charging infrastructure, the City of Hamburg has rolled out more than 600 charging points in the whole area of Hamburg, thereof 22 in the Borough of Bergedorf and 11 in the project area. mySMARTLife in Hamburg is focused on the installation of charging infrastructure for intermodal concepts, i.e. mobility hubs combining mobility services such as car sharing, bicycles etc.

In connection with the rapidly increasing number of electric vehicles and the simultaneous increase of charging points, site-related grid connection capacities will become more and more 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. Furthermore, the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences will build a clean energy charging station, providing 100% of green energy for e-cars and e-bikes.

The public authority vehicle fleet of the Borough of Bergedorf will be renewed and electrified. Micromobility solutions will be adopted through the introduction of e-bikes and last mile people movers. A community car sharing concept will be introduced and implemented in the project area in cooperation with a housing company.
