The e-vehicle market in Europe is slowly gaining momentum

Most car brands now offer electric models and e-vehicle prices have dropped, but the sector is still waiting for a breakthrough moment in Europe.

Smart Grid Interoperability Laboratory

Our houses are fast becoming smart homes, with smart thermostats, domestic appliances and security systems activated by apps on our smartphones. But this is just the beginning. Smart homes are growing into smart communities and smart regions – even smart cities. In the future, we will live in an intelligent digital eco-system, where virtual power plants connect up sustainable energy systems, where electric cars behave as intelligent batteries, and where citizens produce energy as well as consuming it.

Scientific support to EU Battery Alliance

As the European Commission publishes a communication on progress in establishing battery manufacturing in Europe, we look at the JRC's recent work in support of the EU Battery Alliance. 

Low-emission mobility is an essential component of the broader shift to the low-carbon, circular economy needed for Europe to stay competitive and be able to cater to the mobility needs of people and goods.

Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities.

Identifying suppressors and supporters of electric vehicle uptake

Scientific support to the third "Europe on the Move" package

On 17 May 2018 the European Commission introduced a package of measures addressing transport safety, connected and automated mobility, and clean mobility.

The package includes a proposal for CO2 emissions standards for lorries, seeking to reconcile the ambition of world-leading environmental standards with increasing the competitiveness of the European heavy duty vehicle manufacturing industry to secure jobs and growth.
