Fears that electric cars could actually increase carbon emissions are unfounded in almost all parts of the world, new research shows.
Reports have questioned whether electric cars really are ‘greener’ once emissions from production and generating their electricity are taken into account. But a new study by the universities of Exeter, Nijmegen and Cambridge has concluded that electric cars lead to…read full article
The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in Germany describes a European initiative to establish battery cell production in Germany and Europe, which includes comment from the Economic…read full article
Electric vehicle owners may soon be able to pull into a fueling station, plug their car in, go to the restroom, get a cup of coffee and in 10 minutes, drive out with a fully charged battery, according…read full article

It’s common consensus in the tech industry that the days of cars as we know them—powered by gas, driven by humans, and individually owned by all who want and can afford one—are…read full article
Electric motors are implicated in two major decarbonisation options involving electrification: electric vehicles (EVs) and heat pumps. This will lead to a significant market growth, as well as growing…read full article

We’ve talked a lot about falling energy storage costs, and you’ve heard me say cost reductions of 8-15% per year have been the historical norm, at least for the…read full article
Thirteen companies and industry associations from European industry have joined forces and identified key tasks on the upcoming European Union Low Emission Mobility Package. Representing the…read full article
Electric vehicles (EVs) are at the heart of developing synergies between the transport and energy sectors. EV integration into the electricity grid offers a particularly compelling solution for energy storage and grid services, enabled by so-called vehicle-to-grid mechanisms and smart charging.
The shift to electric vehicles will also bring about additional employment and environmental benefits…read full article
Urban transport is responsible for about a quarter of CO2 emissions from transport. Technomar partnered this EU co-funded project on how to make urban transport more environmentally sustainable by wide deployment of Full-Electric Vehicles (FEV). This is the summary report covering interaction between FEV, transport- and energy infrastructure (smart grid). It also includes strategies for trip…read full article
