  • Recharge EU T&E report cover Recharge EU: How many charge points will EU countries need by 2030 Submitted on: Tuesday, January 7, 2020 - 13:33

    To keep up with the upcoming electric surge - estimated to be between 33 million electric cars in the current policy scenario and 44 million in the climate neutral one in 2030 - EU's infrastructure framework needs to prioritise electric charging and be in line with the increasing demand for public and private charge points. This report outlines T&E's public charging plan for Europe, including both the numbers of public chargers needed and the funding mechanisms to nudge the market in the right direction. A new EU policy framework for alternative fuels infrastructure (AFID) and the funding mechanisms currently discussed in the European Green Deal are the two cornerstones to deliver an ambitious EU recharging infrastructure masterplan.

  • New diesels, new problems Submitted on: Friday, January 10, 2020 - 15:12

    Diesel car sales are in free fall. The Dieselgate scandal caused a collapse in customer confidence exacerbated by increasing restrictions on diesel car use in cities. In an attempt to ensure past investments in diesel technology can provide a return, the car industry claim new diesel cars are now "clean". This report demonstrates that the strictest EU car pollution controls are failing to stop large amounts of dangerous particle pollution from diesel cars. It is accompanied by the lab report of Ricardo, which conducted the tests.

    The executive summary of the report is available in English, French, German, Italian, Polish and Spanish.
