Greening European Transportation Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles

Start and end dates: 
January, 2010 to December, 2012
Prevailing Stage of Development: 
Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
The project envisions the analysis, testing and deployment of a multi transport mode network using today’s road infrastructure and railways coupled with an electric car charging network of battery switch stations and charge spots powered by renewable energy along with intelligent transport systems. It is an innovative project that will serve as a technology roadmap for creating a pan European electric car network. The project is designed to help de-carbonise the grid – a key policy initiative for the European Union – and will provide feedback to ongoing EU consultation around the new TEN-T guidelines (2013-2020) and other initiatives shaping the future of transportation in Europe including CARS 21.
