Response to the European Commission Public Consultation on the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy
In September 2020, EASE submitted a response to the European Commission Public Consultation on the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy.
The European Commission intends to adopt a comprehensive Strategy for a Sustainable and Smart Mobility, with the objectives of setting a pathway for the sector towards the sustainable and digital transition and building a resilient and crisis-proof transport system for generations to come. The Strategy aims to deliver on the ambition set out in "Europe Fit for the Digital Age Communications" and the "European Green Deal", which includes a target to reduce transport-related greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by 2050.
The Commission’s objectives also include:
- increasing the uptake of zero-emission vehicles;
- making sustainable alternative solutions available to the public & businesses;
- supporting digitalisation & automation;
- improving connectivity & access.
EASE stands behind these objectives and believes that a sound EU strategy must appropriately value the role of energy storage in relation to mobility.
