Active eConcept, which we feature in our Showcase, develops electric bicycle mobility plans for cities and businesses. In addition to planning a specialized solution for each of its clients, Active eConcept provides a cost-benefit analysis of all of the plan’s components so the client can see how they will save money by providing more sustainable transportation options. Smart Homes in Eindhoven, an assisted living facility for the physically- and mentally-handicapped will be using Active eConcept’s solution to provide residents with electronic and smart devices that improve quality of life and prevent residents from unnecessary health risks.
After inviting Active eConcept to the UK to develop ideas for sustainable transportation there, Southend-on-Sea will also begin working with the team over the next 6 months. The first steps will be to meet with interested companies and local partners who will implement and maintain the solutions locally.
Living Labs Global is always encouraged to see smart and sustainable innovative urban solutions come to fruition. Congratulations!
