Between 2021-2030, 42% of employees in the energy and mobility sectors will need training to assist Europe’s transition to a zero-emission mobility ecosystem. How best to achieve this for both workers and employers?


Policy Conference: "How to get Europe ready for electric trucks and buses?"

The Platform for electromobility and MEP Bas Eickhout organise a debate between policy makers and major stakeholders to discuss the decarbonisation of trucks and buses in the context of the CO2 Standards for heavy-duty vehicles. Register not to miss the opportunity to hear everyone’s position at what will be a crucial moment in the legislative process.

At this Platform’s discussion, we will take a closer look at the proposal and what kind of path it paves to decarbonize trucks and buses.

More information on agenda and speakers will be communicated shortly

Our position on CO2 Standards for HDVs

The revision of HDV CO2 standards should align the CO2 targets for the sector with those of the EU’s overall 55% GHG reduction target in 2030 and the climate neutrality target of 2050.

"A Contresens" documentary in the European Parliament - Replay

A documentary separating the facts from the fiction about electromobility!

Live-streamed from the European Parliament on 7th September - 18:00

Zero-emission vehicles has been a huge topic on our agendas recently, and by 2035, these kind of vehicles will be one of our main means of transport. But do we really know what is inside electric cars and how do the supply chains really work?

To help policy makers better understand these questions, the documentary: “A CONTRESENS: electric vehicles, the great intox” (in French with English subtitles) will be proposed to MEPs on 7 September 2022 at 18:00 in the European Parliament.

We are pleased to inform you that the event will be live-streamed for external stakeholders so you can view the documentary and subsequent debate between MEPs and the movie makers Jonas Schneiter and Zelda Chauvet.

The documentary reveals the quest of two citizens in search of truth and coherence regarding zero-emission mobility. To separate the facts from fiction, engineer Marc Muller and journalist Jonas Schneiter set out to investigate what is behind electric vehicles. For two years, they went into the field to verify and/or challenge stereotypes. The findings of this investigation are summarised in the documentary film “A Contresens”.

6th E-Mobility Power System Integration Symposium

– 10 October 2022 – Delft / The Hague, Netherlands

Supported by the Platform for electromobility, the purpose of the E-Mobility Power System Integration Symposium is to discuss the challenges that arise with increased power demand due to electric vehicle charging, and how they can be met by coordinating with renewable power production in the electrical system. The selection of topics also highlights the need for integrating the required electric vehicle charging infrastructure with the expansion of the distribution and transmission system.

The Symposium offers a prime opportunity to discuss the significant future impact of electromobility on power system design and operation. It aims to bring together experts on electric vehicles, charging infrastructure, power system operators, and stakeholders of the renewable energy industry as well as power system regulators and universities.

Launch event: "Are consumers ready for electric vehicles?"

The Platform for electromobility is pleased to organize the first ever presentation of the study ‘Are consumers ready for electric vehicles?’

The study undertaken by Element Energy and the Platform for electromobility is the largest consumer choice study ever conducted in the mobility sector and aimed to understand consumer preferences in the mobility transitions and how these could change in the future. This event will launch the public presentation of the results.

The European mobility transition will not happen without the Europeans. With the Fit for 55 Package for discussion on the table, it is now more crucial than ever to understand whether the transition to electromobility is inevitable or not?

With a special message from Commissioner Didier Reynders

Corporate cars: the n°1 leverage to boost EV uptake

The Platform recommended setting a gradual approach to progressively but eventually reach the objective of 100% of new vehicle purchase in corporate fleets to be fully electrified by 2030. Discover why here.

Q&A from attendees Cedric Thoma, WG Chair, Tesla

Know more about corporate fleets

Company cars[1] are the elephant in the room that leads Europe to reach its new −100% target in 2035. Corporate fleets represent an estimated 63%[2] of new registrations in 2021 and drive on average 2.25 times more kilometres than private cars. The decarbonisation of company cars is a key leverage to reach climate target with reduced political risks. While immediate results are clear for the planet, there are also strong second-hand impacts on democratisation and affordability of EVs for everyone, without making the low-income classes bear the cost of the transition.

The Platform for electromobility organises an event to raise awareness among stakeholders and policy makers on the obvious, but nonetheless overlooked, benefit the electrification of company cars can trigger. To make this necessary step forward and grab this low-hanging fruit, the Platform recommends setting a gradual approach to progressively but eventually reach the objective of 100% of new vehicle purchase in corporate fleets to be fully electrified by 2030. The Platform outlined in recent publication why and how to create this mandate.

The event will showcase best practices from major fleet owners and companies that have committed to electrify their fleets. It will also be the opportunity to hear reactions from institutional stakeholders and on they actually intent to enshrine in law and implement the EU Smart and Sustainable Mobility Strategy’s announced “actions to boost the uptake of zero-emission vehicles in corporate and urban fleets”.

[1] Any passenger car that is part of a larger fleet within the commercial market channel.  Three categories are commonly taken into account : -Short-term rental / Rent-a-car : all registrations made by rental car companies ; -OEMs / dealers / manufacturers : Demo’s, loan cars, one day registration, 0km, registrations made by manufacturers against themselves ; -True fleets : All except the above categories.
