Sustainable mobility Electric mobility Transport

Iberdrola is once again supporting European Mobility Week, which will be held from 16 to 22 September 2023, reaffirming its commitment to sustainable mobility and the electrification of transport as an effective way to combat climate change.

What is European Mobility Week?

European Mobility Week External link, opens in new window. is a campaign that aims to raise awareness among policymakers and citizens about the negative consequences of irrational use os the traditional car - with combustion engine - in the city, both for public health and the environment, and to promote the benefits of using more sustainable models of transport, such as public transport, cycling and walking.

The slogan chosen by the European Commission for 2023 is Combine and move! In its 23nd edition, European Mobility Week aims to encourage behavioural change in favour of active mobility, public transport and other clean and smart transport solutions such as electric mobility.

In addition, 22 September is Car-Free Day, which aims to find new solutions to the problems associated with increase in vehicle traffic that generates emissions in cities.

Main activities of the European Mobility Week 2023

European Mobility Week is an awareness-raising campaign open to cities and towns, businesses, non-governmental organisations and educational communities. Hundreds of #mobilityactions are registered on the official website to highlight local initiatives for a new transport and lifestyle.

Activities can take any form: from guided walks or bike rides to street games or public lectures, as long as they promote public transport, cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable mobility.

In 2023, 1187 municipalities from 35 countries have signed up, with Spain being the largest contributor with 275 municipalities. With more municipalities joining every year, this initiative is a good opportunity to take stock of current transport challenges, test new forms of mobility and activate permanent measures to actively move towards the mobility of the future.

Iberdrola continues with its electric vehicle charging points plan in Spain.Enlace externo, se abre en ventana nueva.  the company currently has more than 2,500 charging points, increasing by more than one hundred new chargers per month. The main objective is to be able to install 110,000 high-efficiency charging points by 2025. The total investment is budgeted at €150 million and will help electric cars to have a charger available at less than the current charger distance of every 50 kilometres

The electricity company also participated in VEM 2022 Enlace externo, se abre en ventana nueva.: the seventh edition of an exhibition and test of electric vehicles held in Madrid and aimed at the general public. The aim of the event was to bring zero-emission mobility closer to both private individuals and professionals, both public and private.

And continuing with this important pillar of dissemination, Iberdrola published the podcast "Electric car. A modality with a great future", in which Carlos Pérez, Head of Residential Recharging and Alliances of the Smart Mobility team, answers some common questions about the electric car together with karate athlete Sandra Sánchez, motor expert Juanfran Calero and journalist Nira Juanco.
