Naomi Chevillard, SolarPower Europe, Solar Mobility Task Force Coordinator and Christelle Verstraeten, ChargePoint, Chair of the Solar Mobility Task Force On the 30th of April
Electromobility is an emerging global trend and will open a world of new and exciting opportunities for solar. From solar-powered vehicles to solar-powered charging stations, to the development of innovative solar-powered supply offers, solar will help facilitate the electric mobility revolution.
Electromobility is the key to Europe’s transition to low-carbon transport, however, we must make sure that the electricity used for e-mobility is generated from renewable sources, and solar in particular. Solar-powered cars will also of course increase the deployment of our technology which will help us reach the EU climate and energy targets.
The solar mobility revolution presents many benefits and will bring together the transport and the energy sector. For this reason, SolarPower Europe launched the Solar Mobility Task Force, which will explore the existing and potential business models for solar mobility and explore the regulatory and industrial opportunities for Europe.
Join SolarPower Europe’s Solar Mobility Task Force
The aim of the Solar Mobility Task Force is to support a renewable-based decarbonisation of transport by promoting innovative business models using solar energy to fuel clean mobility and supporting the European solar sector to seize the solar mobility opportunities.
