Greening NEAR - Greening Northern European Road Corridors


This project will carry out feasibility studies on consumer preferences and user acceptance of electric vehicles and the related charging infrastructure, as well as the supporting consumer services. It will also make a pilot deployment of fast charging stations along highways in southern Sweden (E20, E6 and E22), Denmark (E20, E45 and E55) and northern Germany (E45 and E22).

The key objective of the study is to clearly demonstrate the market readiness of fast charging technologies, serving multiple types of electric vehicles at the same locations and their consumer acceptance across borders in northern Europe. The study is also expected to show that sufficient infrastructure and innovative service solutions for e-mobility could expand the possibilities of electric travel to long distances (over 500 km) and ultimately encourage the take-up of electric vehicles.

The action is closed.

EU contribution: €1,017,781
