Description

Europe is striving to lead the transition to a decarbonized economy and all sectors have an important role to play. CO2 emissions have decreased in all sectors with the exception of transport. An increasingly decarbonized electricity mix can contribute to the decarbonization of the transport sector, as there is no energy carrier that can curb greenhouse gas emissions to the same extent and scale as electricity.

The Clean Mobility Package can provide the regulatory framework to allow for the electrification of the transport sector, thus reducing emissions from this sector while creating new business opportunities. A high level of ambition through CO2 emission standards and ambitious public procurement practices could incentivize the transition to more sustainable vehicles, and give Europe a competitive edge in zero emission technologies internationally.

What are the economic aspects that surround electro-mobility? What technological improvements have been made? What are the new market drivers? What are the opportunities and needs in terms of new infrastructure? What are the new horizons for jobs and growth? What are the business cases and lessons for future development of electro-mobility?
