Energy efficiency solutions for a sustainable urban mobility: the milan metropolitan area case study

Il progetto STORM (Strategies TOwaRds a sustainable Mobility), sviluppato da RSE, ha individuato e analizzato 11 misure di mobilità sostenibile per l’Area Metropolitana di Milano. Le misure sono state valutate in termini di performance energetiche, ambientali, economiche e di riduzione al fine di stilare una classifica delle soluzioni più promettenti ed efficaci.

In the near future cities will have to supply innovative and high value-added mobility services with respect for environmental, traffic and energy sustainability. It is a great challenge since transportation represents above 20% of the global energy consumption, of which 40% is due to urban areas. In this context RSE has developed the project STORM (Strategies TOwaRds a sustainable Mobility) which aims at studying smart and sustainable solutions and policies in urban mobility planning, in order to supply passengers and goods mobility, with respect to economic, energy efficiency and environmental targets.

This paper investigates the impact and benefits of different mobility solutions and policies, by applying a multimodal transport model. The Milan area is used as test case for two main reasons: first, its high population density and strong transport offer and second, the large amount of information and data available on passengers’ mobility within this area.

By assuming that the mobility demand is a constant, 8 mobility scenarios have been tested on the Milan area, which can be classified into two main groups: 4 measures to strengthen the public transport offer, 4 measures to restrict and discourage the use of private vehicles or introduce a relevant share of electric vehicles. Finally, three combinations of these scenarios was made in order to evaluate the impact of a deep and broad transformation of the current mobility trends. For each scenario a cost/benefit analysis was made in terms of energy efficiency, traffic reduction and environmental impact, in order to draw up a ranking of the most advantageous and promising measures for urban mobility.
