CEMOBIL in a nutshell

The E-mobility project CEMOBIL was launched by the City of Klagenfurt on Lake Wörthersee in September 2010. The project demonstrated that E-mobility does indeed work in European cities such as Klagenfurt on Lake Wörthersee and that effective and sustainable improvement in environmental quality in cities is achievable without imposing undue restraints on individual mobility.

At the same time it was demonstrated that a valuable contribution is being made towards climate protection and towards meeting the Kyoto target by ensuring that the electricity required to power E-vehicles comes entirely from renewable sources of energy.


All in all, 69 electric vehicles (35 passenger cars, 10 micro cars, 2 utility vehicles, 10 E-bikes, 10 scooters, 1 E-bus and 1 solar boat to run on the Lenkanal Canal) were purchased and tested. At the same time, the necessary infrastructure was developed. Fifty charging stations were erected in Klagenfurt and its surroundings by the project partner, the Land of Carinthia. Another 50 charging stations are to be provided through private initiatives (e.g. residential building cooperatives, shopping centres, etc.). In addition, a self-sufficient PV charging station was built. The E-vehicles were made available for testing to private persons, public institutions, driving schools and taxi companies.
