Switching Gears on Europe’s Electric Vehicle Uptake

European Mobility Week—now taking place in Brussels with themes of clean, shared and intelligent mobility—offers an opportunity to take stock of what has been achieved to date, and what is still needed to enable and accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles in Europe.

Alongside these themes, European Copper Institute’s Hans De Keulenaer and Diego Garcia Carvajal reflect on copper’s role in the move towards a sustainable energy future in a new article on EURACTIV.

ECI is also due to present a new report summarising the state-of-play for electric vehicles. A live webcast on 27 September at 11:30 CET will cover market, technology, regulation and case studies for the Europe.

The report’s objective is to contribute to a better understanding of the potential impact of a transition to EVs in Europe and of the barriers that currently impede the realisation of this potential.

The research and analysis contained indicates the EV holds enormous environmental, social and economic benefits for Europe. However, it also shows that despite some progress in the right direction, we are currently a long way from fully realising it. For its potential to be unlocked to a material extent within a 2050 horizon, a series of barriers need to be surpassed through collaboration by all stakeholders.

Details of these findings will be provided alongside recommendations on how to increase EV market uptake and leverage the potential of EV benefits.
