Driving the electric rEVolution
Posts about HDV
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.
