In 2010, the Bavarian cabinet selected Garmisch-Partenkirchen as one of three model communities for electromobility. The central goal of the research project, "e-GAP Electromobility Model Community", is an integrated mobility concept to test whether these innovative technologies can also be used effectively in everyday life.
The regional Centre of Competence for Electromobility coordinates this multitude of projects and also creates a fertile foundation for the sustainability of these research topics. Furthermore, it supports the research participants within the context of networking, events and communication.
The e-GAP promotional project supports the goal of a sustainable tourism destination and is laying the first cornerstone in the area of innovative and future-oriented mobility.
