“There are many emerging organizational innovations that could in principle support the development and diffusion of fossil-free transport technologies. These are linked to different forms of so called servitised mobility, such as mobility as a service, combined/integrated mobility, on-demand mob
ility and shared mobility.
Servitised mobility is based on new business models within the transport sector that can increase vehicle utilization rates and vehicle occupancy, thus reducing congestion, emissions and other forms of pollution. These types of business models also have the potential to stimulate a more rapid introduction of climate-friendly technologies such as biofuels, hybrid and electric drives, fuel cells, and autonomous vehicles.
Servitised mobility can also act as a means to integrate the movement of people and goods, especially in denser urban areas, and create incentives to further integrate the principles of a circular economy into the vehicle fleet. Maximizing these potentials is a major challenge, but also an exciting one.”
