Event – 28 March – EU Parliament

Electrifying transport in Europe has the potential to increase all Europeans’ access to cheaper and more reliable mobility. Electro-mobility also forms a central component of the EU’s drive to decarbonize its whole economy in line with the Paris Agreement.

In the context of the European Commission’s “Clean Energy for all Europeans” package, the Platform for Electro-mobility is organizing this event to discuss how we can accelerate the transition to electro-mobility. How do we roll out more charging infrastructure? How do we overcome regulatory bottlenecks at EU and national level? What is the right role of alternative fuels in moving us towards full electro-mobility?

The Platform is grateful to Ismail Ertug MEP for hosting our event in the European Parliament. Each of the Platform’s 25 members will be sending expert representatives and we will also be hearing from the deputy head of Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič cabinet, as well as Member State transport attaches and NGOs.

The full programme is below.
