Apr 01, 2011

The official high-level kick-off event for the Green e-Motion project took place on 31st March, 2011 in Brussels.

Within the Green Cars Initiative launched in the context of the European Recovery Plan, the European Union supports research and development of road transport solutions which have the potential to achieve a breakthrough in the use of renewable and non-polluting energy sources. With dwindling fossil resources, electromobility and EV become ever more important, especially with respect to climate change. To this end, the project Green eMotion was selected to enable a mass deployment of electromobility in Europe.

42 partners from industry, the energy sector, electric vehicles manufacturers, municipalities as well as universities and research institutions have joined forces in the Green eMotion project (among them: IREC, IBERDROLA, ALSTOM SIEMENS and the Barcelona City Council). The aim is to develop and to demonstrate a commonly accepted and user-friendly framework consisting of interoperable and scalable technical solutions in connection with a sustainable business platform. Smart Grid developments, innovative ICT solutions, different types of EVs as well as urban mobility concepts will be taken into account for the implementation of this framework. The four year project will start in March 2011. It has a total budget of 42 Mio. € and will be funded by the European Commission with 24 Mio. €.
