Electromobility is the most promising future technology to decarbonize road transport. Grid management is critical to electric vehicle adoption. Smart charging is key to minimize the amount of investments needed in the grid. Large scale deployment of EVs represents an opportunity to store large amounts of renewable electricity in batteries, reducing curtailment. EVs can even work as virtual power stations.
RESCHEDULED: This event was rescheduled following the Brussels terror attacks of 22 March. Transport & Environment (T&E) warmly invites you to an all-day conference in Brussels to discuss the decarbonisation of road transport.Bringing together key policy makers from member states, permanent representations, the Commission and the research community, the debate will focus on how European fuel economy standards can help EU countries meet their 2030 climate targets.
In early July, the European Parliament's ENVI Committee will vote on the first update to EU vehicle noise limits in 20 years. Judith Merkies MEP invites you to a discussion on this important public health issue. The event will also include the official launch of the Sound Investment Joint Declaration: a five point plan for cutting traffic noise in urban areas by half. To register, please contact Cécile Toubeau with your full name, date of birth and place of residence.
A half-day event co-organised by Transport & Environment, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) & Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL)
