November 21, 2018: Political course corrections, coupled with the alarming reports on climate conservation, have led the organizers behind Power2Drive Europe and other endorsers to initiate a manifesto. The aim is to deepen the close connection between e-mobility and renewable sources of energy and achieve a sustainable future. The smarter E Europe, the largest energy industry platform in Europe, will demonstrate the potential held by this combination of mobility and clean energy, and the pressing need to pay greater attention to sector coupling.
Some of the declaration’s first signatories include the German Federal Association for eMobility (BEM), the German Association of Energy Market Innovators (bne), the German Association for Solar Mobility (BSM), the German Solar Association (BSW-Solar), the German Wind Energy Association (BWE), the International Solar Energy Society, German Section (DGS) and the International Battery & Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA).
They are not only demanding a clear signal from politicians, but also a progressive approach by industry and members of the public. The manifesto includes seven recommendations to demonstrate why a close connection between e-mobility and renewable sources of energy is absolutely essential. The basis for a successful energy transition can only be established when politicians define clear parameters.
