Climate Change & Clean Energy


Electric vehicles (EVs) are a key tool in the transition to a low-carbon transport system and provide several advantages over conventional transport, such as lower emissions, reduced dependence on fossil fuel imports, improved local air quality and strengthened security of European power systems. In addition, EVs represent an opportunity to securely integrate growing shares of variable Renewable Energy Sources (vRES) though smart charging. Our goal is to reduce GHG emissions from the transport sector through increased market-share of EVs, and ensure electromobility infrastructure is interoperable, secure and cost-effective.

What we are working on

  • Standardisation work related to electric vehicles and the related infrastructure;
  • Standard ISO/IEC 15118 establishing the connection between the EVs and the charging station, standard IEC 63110 which will enable charging stations management
  • Support the coherence of eMobility standardisation activities and EU policy on sustainable transport.
