Transport is an essential component of robust societies, connecting people, underpinning trade, and fostering growth. However, it is a major environmental burden. In Europe alone, the transport sector is responsible for around one quarter of greenhouse gas emissions, significantly hindering the EU’s goals towards climate neutrality.
The EU has declared its clear intention to transition to a more sustainable and low-carbon economy; decarbonisation of the transport system is at the centre of this effort. Towards this goal, the electric vehicle (EV) revolution has been set in motion, and Europe is preparing to lead the way. Sales of EVs soared in Europe in 2022, showing that Europeans are onboard with the effort to transition to a climate-neutral society via vehicle electrification. To get there, however, major barriers to wider EV adoption must be lifted – namely battery performance, affordability, and charging infrastructure.
The 10 EU-funded projects featured in this Results Pack represent a wide range of EU efforts to overcome the challenges facing EV uptake. They showcase the latest research and innovation, as well as developments and applications related to e-mobility, with results that plot a clear trajectory towards the envisaged clean, green transport sector.
This Results Pack is available in six languages (DE, EN, ES, FR, IT, PL).
