Joined innovations for a greener future
Lahti GEM – Green Electrification of Mobility Cluster – is a platform for companies, research and education organisations as well as cities.The platform is established to generate and maintain cooperation for developing and commercialising technologies and solutions for the cleaner future of mobility.
A rapid technological breakthrough is underway in electrified traffic. Tightening regulation and consumers' concern about climate change are generating a rapid change in traffic. The popularity of electric cars is growing, but many people do not know that electric transport is not only electric cars and batteries. It is also a change in the entire energy production and infrastructure.
Top priorities of the cluster are the creation of solutions for electrification of heavy-duty transport and machines, developing and establishing charging and refuelling infrastructure for alternative fuels, and enhancing activities in carbon-neutral energy system development. Automation and digitalisation as well as data analytics play crucial roles as cross-cutting priorities. All transport modes are covered.
Lahti GEM's activities are open to all actors involved in the electrification of transport or who are interested in building the future of emission-free transport.
The cluster reflects the needs addressed by the companies as well as research and education organisations. In line with the needs, the strategic goals have been set to the Lahti GEM activities.
Lahti GEM activities are targeted to
+ support the growth of business and internationalisation by developing projects and pilots;
+ actively search for new investments and partnerships nationally and internationally;
+ contribute to the new openings in research, education and RDI infrastructure.
One major goal is that Lahti GEM is the platform where technologies and solutions are developed, piloted and commercialized in an exceptionally profitable manner.
Lahti GEM builds a legacy to the Lahti - European Green Capital 2021. The cluster activities support both national aims to achieve carbon neutrality and Lahti – the EGC 2021 goals to reach carbon neutrality already in 2025.
