Visegrad Electromobility – State, perspectives and challenges
Transport accounts for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions in the European Union and is the only sector in which emissions have been increasing in recent years. The goal of climate neutrality and the increased reduction target for 2030 will not be achievable without a revolution in transport, as confirmed by the ‘Fit for 55’ package published by the European Commission. Electrification of transport, especially of passenger cars, is therefore a key element in reducing transport emissions.
This report from Forum Energii describes the status and prospects for the development of electromobility in the Visegrad countries (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary), the challenges of reversing current emission trends in road transport as well as how to use the existing potential of sectoral cooperation in the V4 countries.
The publication was published under the framework of EUKI project Int-E-Grid: Powering Electromobility in Poland and Germany and introduces strategies and appropriate measures, such as the V4-route, for the implementation of effective policies to reduce emissions from transport through electrification.
