CALL: BUILDING A LOW-CARBON, CLIMATE RESILIENT FUTURE: GREEN VEHICLES
Call identifier: H2020-LC-GV-2018-2019-2020 Publication date: 27 October 2017
Call summary and aims
The demand for electrified vehicles is progressively increasing thanks to significant technological advances achieved in recent years. Awareness of the ever growing impact of noxious and particulate emissions on health and significant progress in battery technology and production will lead to an acceleration of their market penetration. In addition to the specific call on 'Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future: Next–Generation Batteries’ which will address issues related to the necessary advances in electric batteries, the present call will focus on other critical aspects supporting a massive introduction of electrified vehicles: 1) new architectures, concepts and components to support the advent of the 3rd generation of electrified vehicles, 2) improve the recharging experience from the view-point of the end-users, 3) supporting the competitiveness of European industries through the development of digitalised production environments and the use of advanced material, 4) addressing the urban dimension of introducing electrified vehicles. This call addresses only road transport.
As already mentioned, topics addressing issues related to the development of the next generation of electric batteries, which contribute to the EU Battery Alliance, are found in the dedicated cross-cutting Call 'Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future: Next–Generation Batteries’ which is in part 20 “Cross-cutting activities” of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020. Topics of particular relevance to the ‘Smart, green and integrated transport’ Challenge in that Call are: LC-BAT-1-2019: Strongly improved, highly performant and safe all solid state batteries for electric vehicles; LC-BAT-5-2019: Research and innovation for advanced Li-ion cells (generation 3b); LC-BAT-6-2019: Li-ion Cell Materials & Transport Modelling; and LC-BAT-7-2019: Network of Li-ion cell pilot lines. Research under these topics will contribute to the creation of a European knowledge and industrial base that will support the development of electromobility applications in transport.
The strategic objective of the Green Vehicles Calls for proposals for the years 2018, 2019 and 2020 will be to prepare the ground for this potential massive increase of electrified vehicles and to support European industries to maintain their leading world position in supplying automotive products. The major impact of the research will be to promote the development of a new generation of electric vehicles with a minimum of 400 km range that meets customer expectations, progress and demonstration in urban and regional electric vehicles (light and smart vehicles for passengers, delivery vehicles and buses) and support the production of components and electrified vehicles in Europe. Wide user acceptance shall be stimulated by accessibility and ease of use of all types of charging infrastructure – public, semi-public and private.
