ERTICO is delighted to announce that SAENA, the Saxon Energy Agency based in Germany, has joined its Partnership. This new collaboration will extend ERTICO’s network to another key player in the Public Authorities sector.

“It is with great pleasure I welcome SAENA on board to ERTICO’s Partnership. SAENA’s focus in the ITS sector, including e-mobility and multimodal transportation, will truly support ERTICO’s efforts to connect the dots between its Partners and key stakeholders across the different sectors as well as ERTICO’s various activities in clean, eco – and urban mobility” says Joost Vantomme, ERTICO CEO.

“SAENA as the energy agency of the Free State of Saxony in Germany is very happy to join ERTICO, an international key player in the ITS community that brings stakeholders from various sectors in smart mobility together to develop, promote and deploy ITS in Europe,” says Marcel Kolling, Project Manager at the Efficient Mobility Saxony.

SAENA’s work focuses on e-mobility, ITS, H2 mobility, public transport and multimodality and transformation of the automotive industry. Its main aim is to support the conservation of resources and preserve the basis of life for future generations through active climate protection and increasing energy efficiency as elements of public services.

“Acting on behalf of the Saxon State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Transport, SAENA supports and coordinates activities in innovative and sustainable mobility such as ITS and e-mobility. Being the organisational coordinator of ITS testbed activities in Saxony (e.g. Digital Testbed Dresden), SAENA represents the central contact point for any kind of requests in terms of ITS infrastructure. Furthermore, SAENA supports Saxon stakeholders in their ITS activities by initialising projects, establishing collaboration, organising events, networking with external partners as well as promoting competencies,” says Marcel Kolling, Project Manager at the Efficient Mobility Saxony.

Joost Vantomme, ERTICO CEO stated “Together with our Partners, we are working to develop smarter, efficient and more sustainable mobility services to assist in expanding electro-mobility throughout Europe. SAENA will play a key role in supporting these activities, and we are proud to team up with them for this journey”.

“The Partnership with ERTICO offers SAENA various opportunities such as working together on co-funded projects, getting insights on market trends, networking with new ITS stakeholders, promoting Saxon ITS activities and partners on the European level and having exclusive access to a wide range of event and innovation platforms. Those possibilities enhance and strengthen the portfolio of SAENA in order to support Saxon ITS activities and its partners from a new level,” says Marcel Kolling, Project Manager at the Efficient Mobility Saxony.
