Recharging urban mobility in Europe: Next steps for electromobility

Organised in cooperation with Transport & Environment and Uber

Electrification could be a game changer for mobility in our fight to reduce emissions and noise in cities. Nevertheless, the current share of electric vehicles in Europe remains low. Transport & Environment estimates that to realise the ambition of the EU Green Deal, Europe will need at least 40% of new cars to be zero-emission in 2030, and will need to sell the last combustion engine car by 2035 at the very latest.

To unleash the potential of electrification, Europe needs the right mix of tools, policies, incentives and infrastructure. Cities around Europe are already taking the lead by adopting innovative solutions that can enable zero-emission kilometers, especially for high use and shared vehicles. In this webinar, representatives from local authorities, the industry and civil society will share best practices, and highlight challenges and opportunities for the deployment of zero-emission transport, while making sure the current health crisis does not jeopardise ambitions and climate goals.
