Side B 

Mobility


Just like a good old vinyl record, our newsletters now have two sides. 


The A-side brings together articles that analyse a major transformative trend on the way cities and infrastructure are designed, built and operated. The B-side offers tips on what to read to delve deeper into that theme.


This month, we explore electric mobility.

The “electric fairy” and the enticing future of mobility  

Spotlight on electric mobility ! Electricity is making its big return to centre stage, stimulated by the never-ending changes to the ways we get around. Twenty-first century mobility will either be sustainable or won’t exist, and to reach this much-sought-after horizon, electricity offers a great deal of promise.
