Kolding Design School gets funding to explore electric transport future  

2009.03.27
DKK 28 million in funding has been granted to Kolding Design School to explore how the transition to an electric future can be made attractive to ordinary people
With CO2 emissions from the transport sector continuing to rise, there are many indications that electrical vehicles represent the sustainable transport solutions of the future. But the present is combustion engine powered, so how can the transition to an electric future to be made in a way that encourages ordinary people to embrace change?
 
This challenge is being taken up by Kolding Design School in southern Jutland with the help of DKK 28m (USD 5.1m) in funding from the Southern Denmark Growth Forum, the EU Structural Fund, and several other public and private sector partners, reports financial daily newspaper Børsen.
 
The project will run for three years and involve both students at the design school and professional designers developing solutions that will improve the economic perspectives of electric transport. Areas of interest include battery recharging stations, and smart communication between electric vehicles and the supply utility.
 
The aim is to encompass all target groups and hold a number of design conferences and seminars where future users of electric transport solutions can give their input and express their opinions. All the results of design the projects will be made public on Kolding Design School's website.
