It's time to grease the wheels for a climate neutral transport!

On 28 June, E.DSO invites you to join the debate on the hurdles and drivers for smart and climate-neutral transport.

Europe is at a pivotal moment in its transport transformation. We have a narrowing window of opportunity to match the race for global clean transport leadership.

With a share of around 20% of total CO2 emissions in the EU, the transport sector is under enormous pressure to push the electrification strategy as fast as possible. This transformation is required to achieve the necessary emission reduction of 90% by 2050. In view of the recently adopted regulation on the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure (AFIR) - which is the leading legislation – E.DSO is organising a workshop gathering several perspectives related to behaviour of EV users and the impact of the charging infrastructure on the distribution networks. Further and more importantly, the issue of an appropriate smart charging management that can limit the need for additional peak capacity when renewable generation is scarce, will be addressed.

The places are limited, so the policy of first come first served will apply.
