In 2017, a total of 70 German cities exceeded statutory thresholds for nitrogen oxides, some of them by a substantial margin. In response, federal government launched an emergency program – entitled “Saubere Luft 2017–2020” – to improve air quality in built-up areas. In line with this program, Fraunhofer IAO is now working to bring about a significant increase in charging facilities for electric vehicles in municipal areas with particularly high NOx levels. The LamA project focuses on the provision of charging points at the workplace. It is targeting an annual reduction of around 100 metric tons of nitrogen oxides.
