01: Electromobility – from vision to reality

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

Electromobility currently raises a variety of hopes: increase of energy efficiency and security of energy supply, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the establishment of a new green car industry, just to name a few. For electromobility to happen, a fundamental change of the transport and energy system including its infrastructure will be required. For the market introduction of electromobility an efficient management of change seems to be necessary, based on a common vision of public authorities and industry. Benchmarking of political visions and implementation strategies are at the core of this workshop in order to pave the ground to make electromobility happen.

France had a first experience in electric cars in the mid-1990's. This experience was not really successful but led France to have a leading position in the world during one decade. In the mid-2000's and due to this experience, the trend was more to improve the efficiency of thermal engines, to introduce some part of biofuels and to increase step by step the contribution of electricity (hybridation).
A strategic turn happened in 2007, when the French government organised the "Grenelle de l'environnement", a national debate about environmental issues. The price of energy was very high at this time, the awareness about climate change strongly growing, and this debate led to the so-called "Plan véhicules décarbonés" (ultra-low carbon vehicle plan), with actions in R&D, in market incentives, in legislation, in demonstration projects, all concerning as well the infrastructure as the vehicles.
This plan is on the way, unless some delay linked to the economic crisis and the new funding system decided in 2009 ("grand emprunt", big loan). Actions are mainly at the national level but two projects must be underlined at the European level : a French-German demonstration project which will be launched in September and the so-called Eranet+ Electromobility project, a common call involving at least nine countries and supported by the EC, which will be submitted to the EC in October.
