Ljubljana, Bratislava, and Zagreb are ideally placed to lead into the next level of green urban transport in the cohesion region

Slovenia, Slovakia, and Croatia are already deploying EV charging infrastructure along TEN-T Corridors and adopting supporting policies. Due to their geographical position as bridgeheads connecting to Western Europe, these initiatives have led to a strong leverage effect, allowing others to follow fast. As market experiences have shown, infrastructure deployments are needed to lead demand, not only on the Core Network, but also within Urban Nodes. The municipalities of the capital cities of Ljubljana, Bratislava, and Zagreb are now ready and committed to take the next steps necessary to allow EV mass market uptake to start in their Urban Nodes.

The European Commission estimates that road congestion costs 1% of EU GDP per year. Smarter mobility has the potential to reduce traffic jams in European cities and contribute to annual savings of up to €100 billion for society. This figure includes the value of wasted time and fuel spent in traffic jams.
