Mobility & sobriety, utopia or reality?

The Impact France Movement invited entrepreneurs and experts to a round table discussion on the mobility of tomorrow. In preparation for the Summer University of the Economy of Tomorrow on the theme of sobriety, an event to decipher the challenges of the mobility sector.

To remember:

  • Aurélien Bigo, a researcher on the energy transition in transport, recalled the five levers for decarbonising mobility: transport demand, modal shift, occupancy rates, vehicle energy efficiency and the carbon intensity of energy. Five levers that combine sobriety and technology.
  • For Alexandra Debaisieux (Railcoop), developing innovations that help users, companies and public authorities move towards more sober models can only be done in a model where the entire organisation is consistent with the sober objective. In other words, like impact companies, organisations must involve their stakeholders (power sharing) and share value so that the entire model is geared towards meeting the challenges of low mobility.

The panel agreed that regional planning, particularly in rural areas, should be carried out in consultation with public and private mobility stakeholders. Thinking in terms of the link between transport and territories is a central issue in order to deploy solutions that are as close as possible to the real uses and needs of the population and to avoid multiplying flows with the imperative objective of sobriety.

Finally, what also emerged from these discussions is the importance of not creating needs through innovations that do not respond to the decarbonisation of our lifestyles.
