Galp revealed on Tuesday that its startup 'GoWithFlow' is developing sustainable electric mobility solutions in the city of Memphis, United States.

Galp’s startup ‘GoWithFlow’ is developing sustainable electric mobility solutions, under the ‘Digital Delta’ project, which should be implemented in Memphis, United States, the oil company announced on Tuesday.

Questioned by Lusa, the company did not disclose the value of the investment in these solutions.

The ‘Digital Delta’ project will be implemented under a consortium led by the University of Memphis, selected by the US government for the ‘Build Back Better Regional Challenge’ programme, and is focused on the electrification of ‘last mile’ logistics solutions for urban micro-mobility options for public and shared transport for businesses, workers, visitors and residents of Memphis.

According to the same note, the consortium received an initial grant of $500,000 (about €442,000) to develop the proposal.

The consortium’s plan calls for the implementation of infrastructure to manage fares, “overcome barriers to creating economies of scale” and to connect urban, suburban and rural components through programmes to promote sustainable mobility.

“The consortium’s plans will transform the Memphis area and serve as an example of leadership in urban transformation not only in the United States, but also internationally,” said Jane Hoffer, CEO of ‘GoWithFlow’, quoted in the same document.

In Portugal, ‘GoWithFlow’ has worked with companies and municipalities such as Lisbon, Porto and Cascais.
