6th Energy Day in the Moabit District


On September 7, 2017, NEUE MOBILTÄT BERLIN (NMB) participated for the first time at the MOABIT ENERGY DAY. Invited by the Moabit Company Network, Rolf Mienkus (insel-projekt.berlin UG) gave a brief overview of the prerequisites, the conditions and the results of the NMB research project at the Info-Workshop 1 “Sustainable Mobility and City-Logistics”.

The idea of convincing people of the advantages of multimodal mobility without making use of a privately owned car was met with great interest. This concept was consolidated by the speeches of representatives of the Berlin Agency for Electromobility (eMO, Frank Panse, “Sustainable Mobility in Urban Commercial Transport”) and BEHALA (Klaus-Günter Lichtfuß, “The Fully Electric Supply Chain for Sustainable Urban Logistics of Tomorrow”).

Subsequently, NMB moved to its exhibition stand in front of the City Hall Tiergarten (see photo, copyright: STATTBAU GmbH). LARS, the electric (rental) cargo bike which was acquired as part of the project, was displayed together with a roll-up banner of “Distribut-e – Green Supply Chains for the City of Tomorrow”, a joint research project of the TU Berlin and insel-project.berlin UG.

"The 6th Moabit Energy Day was a most welcome opportunity to engage in a cross-district neighbourly exchange."

— Rolf Mienkus, insel-projekt.berlin UG (haftungsbeschränkt)

The well-attended event on energy efficiency and climate protection served as a showcase for local neighbourhood projects related to the urban development concept of Green Moabit, as well as the offers of major players such as Vattenfall and BSR.

The bottom line was clear: crossing the border of the Mierendorff-ISLAND has paid off for NEUE MOBILITÄT BERLIN. New contacts were established and existing ones were deepened. The exchange between the two neighbourhoods about innovative mobility approaches is to be further developed, in spite of or precisely because of their location in two distinct districts.
