E-mobility as an energy resource

E-mobility as an energy resource

– best practices to drive regulatory changes

Climate neutral by 2050 - that is the EU's man on the moon.
Much remains to be done to achieve this long-term objective, starting with more ambitious climate action in the transport sector in the coming decade.
The clean electrification of vehicles and the deployment of a smart charging infrastructure are the success factors to transform vehicles from mere transport assets to decentralized energy resources fully integrated in the clean power system.
