Nissan leads calls for battery technology roll-out to achieve EU climate change targets
An action plan to unlock the potential of electric vehicles and battery technology and enable Europe to meet its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
The proposals are designed to increase renewable energy generation, electric vehicle (EV) ownership and the integration of vehicles with power grids across European countries.
The project has been detailed in a new White Paper, led by Nissan, as part of the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC), a programme supported by the European Commission bringing together industry, cities and researchers.
The White Paper covers the pivotal role battery technology will play, the need to ensure batteries have a full second life as mobile or static storage units, and the ways to tackle the current blockers to delivering energy systems such as vehicle-to-grid.
