Open call to support a smooth transition to electric vehicles through easily accessible charging solutions on private property
We, as stakeholders from the entire e-mobility ecosystem, call on members of the European Parliament’s Industry Committee (ITRE) to amend the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) by setting ambitious and timely targets to support a smooth transition to electric vehicles (EVs) through easily accessible charging solutions on private property.
Open letter – joint response from the EV ecosystem to Commissioner Breton’s comments on e-mobility in POLITICO
We, as stakeholders from the entire e-mobility ecosystem, are writing to you to express our concerns over your most recent comments to Brussels media, in which you warned of “gigantic disruption” to the automotive sector in the face of reinforced car and van CO2 standards.
This “gigantic disruption” is in fact a major transition to a cleaner, more sustainable Europe in line with the legally binding obligations of the EU Climate Law. The phase-out of ICE cars and vans in 2035 – which was given a democratic mandate by the co-legislators just over one week ago and hailed as an example of European leadership ahead of COP27 – is crucial to provide certainty to investors, decision-makers and civil society.
Statement - The Critical Role of Smart Electric Transport in Addressing the Energy Crisis
Europe is going through its worst energy crisis since the 1970s. All levers must be activated to minimize its impact on European households and companies. We, the undersigned associations active in the e-mobility and wider energy ecosystem believe that demand-side flexibility measures are currently under-leveraged in the EU’s response. The smart electrification of road transport can and should play a critical role in support of electricity demand reduction, energy independence, and the integration of more renewable electricity into power grids thanks to the activation of demand-side flexibility.
Recommendation Plan - Making Buildings Ready For Electric Mobility
We, the undersigned associations representing different parts of the e-mobility ecosystem, call on the EU institutions to amend the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD) so that EV charging at home or at the workplace becomes easy and accessible for all.
Position Paper- The Revision of CO2 Standards for Heavy Duty Vehicles
AVERE strongly welcomes the Commission’s initiative to revise the EU’s CO2 standards for Heavy Duty Vehicles (HDV). Lorries, buses and coaches are responsible for about a quarter of CO2 emissions from road transport in the EU, and for some 6% of total EU emissions. Their full decarbonisation is a precondition for the EU’s aim of reaching climate neutrality in 2050.
