Siemens helps to pave the way for an electromobility mass deployment in London. The trail-blazing project Source London was officially launched on Thursday by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. The project of the local public transport operator Transport for London will provide a network of publicly accessible charging points for electric vehicles across the city. Siemens delivered the IT backbone for the project as well as the software for the operation center, which will manage the charging points. The number of charging points is targeted to rise to approximately 1,300 by 2013.
