A strong EV benchmark can cut transport emissions and help modernise Europe’s electricity grid

By |november 8th, 2018|Cars and CO2, Clean Mobility Package, electric cars, electric vehicles, News|

Over a century ago, electric vehicles (EVs) were the best-selling cars on the market. Bringing them back on today’s roads will not only help to decarbonise transport, but the energy sector too, with wider benefits for society, argues Julia Hildermeier.
