Electromobility is essential to achieve the objectives of the COP21 and the European Green Deal by mitigating the worst consequences of climate change. Electric vehicles (EVs) are, on a life cycle basis in the EU, more competitive in terms of CO2 emissions than other modes of propulsion.
Energy efficiency and flexibility
With smart charging and future bi-directional charging capabilities, EVs are batteries on wheel and are an important asset in balancing the grid and promoting the penetration of renewable energy. This creates a virtuous circle and help reduce the life-cycle emissions by promoting the adoption of a greener electricity grid.
Air and noise pollution
E-mobility has an enormous health potential as it will participate in the reduction of air pollution and noise in urban and non-urban areas. This will increase the well-being of European citizens and make cities more liveable.
With the right policies in place, electromobility will accelerate the EU's energy independence and boost the EU's green economy, creating jobs and growth.
AVERE is the only European association representing and advocating for electromobility on behalf of the industry, academia, and EV users at both EU and national levels. On top of advocacy, we provide our members with a unique forum for exchanging knowledge, experience, and ideas on how to stimulate electromobility throughout Europe. As European Federation, we take pride in bringing together the entire e-mobility ecosystem with different members such as National Associations, actors who are active in the charging infrastructure industry and stakeholders who are active on the vehicle side.
AVERE Europe is the European Association of Electromobility and is thus the central platform for national e-mobility associations to meet and exchange experiences.
Our Vehicle members exist of a large and different group of vehicle manufacturers and suppliers that are active on the European market.
Our Infrastructure members represent all kind of stakeholders who are active in the charging infrastructure industry. These consists amongst others of charging manufacturers, installers, CPO's en e-MSP's.
100% new zero-emissions vehicles by 2030
Fully decarbonised European road transport by 2050
Making Europe a world leader in electromobility
The board is the main governing body of AVERE. It sets its priorities and provides the strategic perspective and goals.

Open call by industry to EU Commission to ensure all new freight trucks are zero emission from 2035 with a limited exception for vocational trucks
The upcoming proposal by the European Commission to revise the CO2 emission standards for new heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) will determine the future of the European road freight sector. Although heavy-duty trucks represent only 2% of the vehicles on European roads, their climate emissions account for more than a quarter of the EU’s road transport emissions and have been increasing continuously over the past decade. Road transport and HDVs are also one of largest sources of particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions, which the European Environment Agency estimates to cause 350,000 premature deaths per year in the EU.
