Press release: Launch of the European Alternative Fuels Observatory Published:25.03.2016  
by:AVERE


All relevant information about the electric vehicles market in Europe on a single portal !

 
A Consortium led by AVERE, the European Association for Electromobility, has launched the EAFO portal www.eafo.eu. The portal is available to all to provide information on the development and deployment of alternative fuels' vehicles, infrastructure and incentives as well as related relevant topics in the different EU countries. The EAFO was set up at the initiative of the European Commission.
 
Available information is currently focused on electricity, while information on hydrogen and natural gas will be provided as of the third quarter of 2016. The EAFO Consortium will also conduct and publish analysis based on the collected data and information .

The EAFO portal provides details and quality not available anywhere else for the Member States and other stakeholders, in the 28 EU countries and in the EFTA countries (Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein).
 
While most of the data is already provided through official sources, the EAFO project team invites all stakeholders to contribute!
 
Note to editors:for further information, please contact Bert Witkamp, Secretary-General of AVERE and Project Coordinator of the EAFO project: bert.witkamp@avere.org.

WITH LANDMARK CLIMATE ACCORD, WORLD MARKS TURN FROM FOSSIL FUELS Published:14.12.2015  
by:AVERE

The global climate summit in Paris forged a landmark agreement on Saturday, setting the course for a historic transformation of the world’s fossil fuel-driven economy within decades in a bid to arrest global warming

After four years of fraught U.N. talks often pitting the interests of rich nations against poor, imperiled island states against rising economic powerhouses, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius declared the pact adopted, to the standing applause and whistles of delegates from almost 200 nations.

“With a small hammer you can achieve great things,” Fabius said as he gaveled the agreement, capping two weeks of tense negotiations at the summit on the outskirts of the French capital.

PRESS RELEASE : COP21 - Electromobility as priority in all discussions regarding transport Published:03.12.2015  
by:AVERE

AVERE and its members applaud the engagements made in favour of electromobility during the Focus Day Transports of the COP21. The whole European network stands together with the public policy makers to achieve the ambitious goals set on the 3rd of december.

On the day dedicated to transport of the Lima Paris Action Agenda of the COP21, the Déclaration de Paris sur l’électromobilité et le Changement climatique was signed by a group of European and North-American countries. The objective of this document is to have at least 20% of the worldwide vehicle fleet propulsed by electricity by 2030.

At this occasion, Ségolène Royal, French Minister of Ecology, Sustainable development and Energy, reminded everyone that the key to achieving this ambitious result is to make the electric vehicle accessible to all. To this end, the Minister appealed to all partners to the declaration to join her in engaging to work together towards this goal.

Industry Pledge COP 21 To Achieve Electromobility Goals Published:20.11.2015  
by:AVERE



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  
by:AVERE
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.
