It is now clear that the ecological transition towards more sustainable forms of mobility, such as electric or hybrid vehicles and rail transport, is a key point in the path to combating global climate change, but also, and perhaps to a greater extent, in creating the world in which we will live in the next century, and therefore also in defining the most advanced industrial strategies.
With this in mind, we at Brian and Partners are investing in the development of projects related to research and innovation in the field of e-Mobility, in order to strengthen the attractiveness and centrality of the sector as an element of cohesion and sustainable development.
The development of the railways is an objective clearly identified in the PNRR. In this sense, the national recovery and resilience plan includes an entire mission, number 3, entitled ‘Infrastructure for sustainable mobility’, of which a very substantial part is dedicated to ‘Investment in the railway network’ and a minority to ‘Intermodality and integrated logistics’.
The intention of Brian and partners is to catalyse part of the funds for recovery, in order to increase and improve the country’s railway network and thus promote a sustainable mode of transport with low polluting emissions. In particular, the proposals we are working on include the planning and development of improvements and investments in the railways, especially at local level.
In this regard, the aim is to try to contribute to the achievement of the Single European Railway Area, to the fastest and cheapest possible transition to more attractive and user-friendly infrastructures and to a strong and globally competitive European railway industry, with clear repercussions in terms of lower carbon emissions, thus placing the railway at the heart of European strategies for decarbonisation and inclusiveness of the transport of people and goods, in an integrated and multimodal manner.
Brian and partners, through a network of associated or affiliated companies in the sector, is able to implement a capillary network of recharging stations, suitable for the most diverse requirements in terms of recharging times, costs and geographical location. This network of recharging points is designed to meet the needs of the e-driver community, seeking out the best PoIs (Points of Interest) where users can be offered services to optimise waiting times during recharging.
Both cars and electric bikes are developing exponentially. Brian is already active with some of the most important players on the Italian and international scene, with solutions ranging from residential, and therefore very small, to industrial, with ultra-fast and large charging networks, including substations and connection to the national grid.
The future will see the advent of hydrogen, both on the railways (from next year, hydrogen trains will be running in Italy) and in road transport. Brian is there and is also moving in this futuristic direction.
