Industry Pledge COP 21 To Achieve Electromobility Goals Published:20.11.2015  

As industry leaders, we pledge to match political commitments made, at Paris COP21 or other occasions, for ambitious growth in electromobility and the further roll out of electric vehicles. Building on the substantial resources we have already committed towards R&D, manufacturing and the deployment of such technologies, we will continue to support efforts towards mitigating climate change.

The huge potential of electromobility to contribute towards tackling climate change, air pollution and independence from fossil fuels is being demonstrated on a day-to-day basis in countries across the world and consumers are rapidly embracing these new technologies. 

In order to make a smooth transition to mass scale electric vehicle uptake, governments need to define a long term strategy and support further deployment of electric vehicles and necessary infrastructure. This strategy needs to be supported by adequate incentives as well as communication campaigns addressing consumer’s needs and concerns. Industry needs this time to build up critical mass and to further optimize the existing and emerging technologies related to electromobility.

Electro-mobility is key to decarbonise Europe's transport sector within the Energy Union Published:18.11.2015  
Open letter to the EC:


Brussels, 18/11/2015

Dear Vice-President Šefčovič, 

Dear Commissioner Bulc, 

Dear Commissioner Arias Cañete, 

The Platform for Electro-mobilitywelcomes the European Commission’s “State of the Energy Union 2015” as providing a key opportunity to assess the progress made towards the stated aim to “decarbonise … road … and rail transport” and to drive Europe to become “a leader in electro-mobility”. The Platform brings together companies and organisations that share this vision for the future of mobility and the ideas and desire to guide this transition. 

Electro-mobility is key to reach the Energy Union’s goals to decarbonise transport, to contribute to energy security and to create innovation and competitiveness in Europe’s core industries. Whilst some progress is being made, Europe is failing to leverage the full potential of the single market and is making disparate progress across EU member states in shifting towards the wider uptake of electro-mobility.

For example; the majority of EU states significantly lag behind Norway2, where one out of every five new cars sold is electric. To realise benefits of electro-mobility in the EU, we call on the Commission to further facilitate and track the progress of Member States by including concrete indicators for electro-mobility in the annual assessment of Members States’ progress; and, to take initiatives in the below-mentioned areas to help Member States make more rapid progress.
