Grids, renewables and e-mobility: how to get the maximum out of the three

When?

Where? 
Norway House
17 Rue Archimede

Belgium

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.

European Parliament 60 rue Wiertz
Room JAN 4Q2

The introduction of the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) is expected to lead to more representative emission measurements than the old NEDC test cycle. However, there will still be a gap between real world emissions and the values measured in the laboratory.

Truck fuel: less is more

When? 
Wednesday, April 11, 2018 - 08:30 to 16:00
Where? 
Vertretung des Freistaates Bayern bei der Europäischen Union
Rue Wiertz 77
1000 Brussels
Belgium

On the 2nd of May the European Commission will propose its first ever fuel efficiency standards for trucks.

Heavy duty vehicles represent 5% of all road vehicles but account for 25% of EU road CO2 emissions. Truck standards are therefore urgently needed. They will save hauliers money, help Europe meet its climate targets and kick start zero emission trucking. But, in order to fully deliver, standards must be both ambitious and well-designed.

El futuro de los coches en España

When? 
Wednesday, November 22, 2017 - 17:00 to 20:00

Against the background of the Bonn Climate Change Conference and the release of the second Clean mobility package by the European Commission, the Spanish Government is elaborating Spain's Industrial Strategy. It feels like high time to secure the currently leading position of the Spanish vehicle and components manufacturers’ industries. Does it make sense to keep manufacturing internal combustion engines when the rest of the world goes in the opposite direction?
