MODERATOR: Thomas Neumann, AVERE Policy Manager in charge of the Heavy-Duty Vehicles


Trucks, lorries, buses and coaches make our daily lives function smoothly: from restocking stores and supermarkets to transporting online deliveries to our cities, to bringing our kids to school and us to work or – preferably, but more occasionally – on vacation.

However, they are also responsible for about a quarter of CO2 emissions from road transport in the EU and some 6% of total EU emissions. Their full decarbonisation is a precondition for the EU’s aim of reaching climate neutrality in 2050.

The first half of 2022 has seen both Parliament and member states support 2035 as the date by which all newly registered passenger cars will need to be zero emissions. Europe cannot be complacent if it wants to achieve its ambition: all vehicles on EU roads – including trucks and buses – will need to be decarbonised.

The European Commission is poised to present revised CO2 Emissions Standards for Heavy Duty Vehicles, as well as an update to Euro 7 pollutant emission norms, this year – at a crucial time, as zero-emissions trucks are hitting the market and available to fleet operators all over Europe for the first time

Against this background, the event will bring together decision-makers, OEMs and fleet operators to discuss what is needed to ensure Europe’s Heavy Duty Vehicles become Emissions free by 2050.

Questions addressed will include:

• Is Europe ready to shift to zero-Emissions trucking?

• What kind of ambition is needed and realistic in updating EU Emissions Standards for Heavy Duty Vehicles?

• How to enable the uptake of Heavy Duty Electric Vehicles through AFIR?

• When will Europe hit the TCO inflexion point? How can we reach it sooner?

• Can all use cases be covered by Battery Electric Trucks?


The event is part of our STEAM campaign

Steam is one of the first forms of energy used to power mechanisms. Throughout history, beginning back in the 1st century, not only did it move machines, it started a thought revolution that culminated in the industrial age and never stopped.

Engineers raced to develop more advanced forms of transportation, and the world started moving faster than ever.

We required STEAM: rigorous science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Arts, too, played a significant role, and at times we happily choose form over function.

Every new innovation propelled wealth, drove people farther, opened unimagined opportunities, and made scientists wonder. What lies on the road ahead, to go faster, haul more, to be as efficient as possible?

We are STEAMing ahead with the electric revolution, devising more advanced vehicles.

E-mobility is replacing the combustion engine for good. Thanks to science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.

Today too, STEAM is making the e-mobility world move, although in the form of breakthrough discoveries, pioneering tech, cutting-edge engineering, revolutionary design, and sophisticated mathematics.

E-mobility zone @ Enlit Europe @ Messe Frankfurt
Nov 29 – Dec 1 all-day
E-mobility zone @ Enlit Europe @ Messe Frankfurt
Register Here

Enlit is a constantly growing, inclusive and end-to-end forum that addresses every aspect of the energy agenda. A community that for 365-days a year collaborates and innovates to solve the most pressing issues in energy.

The most valuable currency in the energy sector today is knowledge. And knowledge only has any worth if it is shared.

Enlit Europe allows participants to share their knowledge and learn from others. Enlit Europe will bring them face-to-face with the best thought-leaders, innovators and disruptors in the energy sector and beyond, representing power generators, IPPs, utilities, grid operators, energy companies, retailers, energy markets, energy traders and exchanges, plus commercial and industrial energy users.

At Enlit Europe, participants will meet the people you most need to know – and those you didn’t realise they needed to know.

E-Mobility plays a key role.

Endorsed by AVERE, the E-Mobility Zone highlights the EV sector’s huge growth potential as part of the energy transition and showcases companies from across the EV value chain.

The topic will also be covered in the Programme, on the Decarbonisation Hub.

At the E-Mobility Zone you will learn about:

  • The latest developments on EVs and E-mobility
  • Innovations in EV charging infrastructure
  • Challenges and opportunities to meet the expected future demand for EV batteries
  • Strategies for recycling batteries and making a sustainable use of materials
  • Integration of renewables, storage and EV charging
  • A roadmap of EU Projects accelerating the electrification of mobility in Europe
