The number of companies, institutions and organisations making up and enriching the network of Cycle Competence Austria has grown by two to reach 26. We are welcoming the leading producer of outdoor charging stations for e-bikes, bike energy from Salzburg, as well as the mobility agency of the city of Vienna as new members of the platform.
Vienna Mobility Agency
Vienna’s Mobility Agency invests a lot ot energy into pursuing the policy goals of the department of transportation. Via campaigns, events and service offers the Viennese are convinced to use the bicycle or to walk more often. The agency is the contact point for improvement proposals and mediates between citizens and administration. It develops mobility management for different target groups and designs innovative measures like the cargo bike subsidy 2017.
bike-energy Charging Stations
Functional infrastructure to charge outdoors is necessary for a true e-bike boom. The solution comes from Salzburg: The first charging station worldwide without home charger. The bike-energy charging stations represent a new way to charge e-bikes on the go without risk. Several energy providers, companies, municipalities and tourism regions are already using this future-oriented technology. It can help hospitality businesses reach new, high-end consumers.
The bike-energy charging stations have received multiple awards like the EURObike Award, Industry Award Austria, Best Product of the County. From a technical point of view they are outperforming all current charging systems.
We are happy to announce that we will have a prize draw in which all Austrian municipalities can take part. The prize is a bike energy charging station! The draw will happen as part of the European mobility week in autumn between 16 and 22 September.
