E-mobility plays an important role for future mobility systems and their sustainability. The main advantages of this technology are its low contribution to climate change, at least as long as the energy consumed is generated from renewable sources. In the tourism sector especially the journey to and from the destination but also trips at the destination are responsible for most of the CO2 emissions. Therefore these aspects also provide the highest potential for CO2 reductions.

The special challenge for the Lake Constance ("Bodensee") region is to facilitate e-mobility in a primarily rural area. There is still potential for growth of e-mobility. The reasons for this are on the one hand technical challenges but on the other hand also a discrepancy between sustainable attitudes and actual behaviour of many tourists (attitude-behaviour-gap). Therefore the goal of the project is the analysis of success factors and barriers for touristic e-mobility in the region. It focuses on the reduction of these barriers both for touristic mobility suppliers and the tourists themselves, especially by enhancing the connection of relevant stakeholders. New business cases and attractive touristic offers are to be developed together with the tourism stakeholders based on a low-threshold infrastructure.
