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.
Electromobility thus has a great potential to become a key solution for an environmentally friendly and decarbonised transport sector. Moving away from dirty fossil fuels and introducing proper sustainability criteria for batteries are essential to making it happen. Discover our new report!

With an increase in electro-mobility expected in the coming years, it is important to ensure that the power grid remains stable and avoid an unmanaged charging of electric vehicles. Thanks to “smart charging”, EVs adapt to both user preferences and the conditions of the power system, secure the stability of the grid, reduce renewable energy curtailment, at the same time allowing higher shares of renewable energy. Smart charging helps reduce the need for expensive grid reinforcement and additional stationary batteries.
