Integrating e-vehicles into modern infrastructures

Published: 21 November 2011

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate

Our industry reasonably expects some 4 million e-vehicles in Europe by 2020.  Although by 2020 the market share is still expected to be quite modest, our industry is seriously preparing the uptake of e-mobility in Europe.

The success of electric vehicles in European markets largely depends on the availability of adequate infrastructures offering convenient solutions for the customer.  This is the main focus of electrical and electronic equipment manufacturers that are providing the essential link between the e-vehicle and the electric grid.

As opposed to other alternative technologies for green mobility, the basic infrastructure for charging e-vehicles is already available in the electric grid even if it still needs some adaptations to be prepared for mass deployment of e-vehicles.
