Electric Vehicles at the Crossroads: Towards a Comprehensive EU-Wide Strategy

Event date


Recent scientific evidence on climate change has caused communities to urgently consider alternative ways to reduce our carbon emissions. The European Environment Agency estimates that automobiles alone account for 14% of the EU's total CO2 emissions. The role of electric vehicles in the European transport sector has offered a vast opportunity for industry growth, technology development and most importantly, the much needed reduction of transport CO2 emissions. This conference offers a timely opportunity for industry stakeholders, investors, business representatives and governments to share their experiences and exchange ideas in order to create a collaborative strategy for electric vehicle development between the highest levels of European government and the automotive industry. Through a series of presentations from leading figures in the automotive, academic and government sectors, participants will have the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the current consultations and Commission plans to develop an innovative framework for EVs.
