The “Zero Emission Services for a Decarbonised Alpine Economy” project (LIFEalps for short) is based on the South Tyrol 2050 Climate Plan from 2011 whose main aim was and is the reduction of CO2-emissions. When this plan was redacted the mobility sector has not been considered as there were no technological solutions available.


In the meantime, although, much has changed: now, there are technological solutions available and first pilot projects have shown that they are already suitable for everyday use and that they are marketable. Furthermore, taking actions in the mobility sector does not reduce only CO2-emissions but tackles air and noise pollution as a whole. Therefore, e-mobility is not only important to fight climate change but it is an important contribution towards the citizens’ health.


This project aims at transforming South Tyrol into an Alpine model region for zero emission mobility.


As to reach this ambitious goal, partners from different areas of South Tyrol have decided to join forces and to develop the infrastructure for e-mobility, to bring pilot fleets on the streets and to create zero emission services (e.g. taxi, shuttle service, transport of goods).


This project has a duration of 8 years, and has officially started on 1st January 2019.
