Today at Intersolar Europe, SolarPower Europe held the kick-off meeting of its new Solar Mobility Task Force. Leading automotive and solar companies met to discuss ways to increase solar-powered electric mobility in Europe.
James Watson, CEO of SolarPower Europe, commented “Electro-mobility 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. This way we can be sure that transport will contribute to the decarbonisation of the EU economy. Solar is also the perfect partner for e-mobility, as you can build charging infrastructure linked to solar on your home, your office, your car park, your service stations, solar can basically be used everywhere you could want to charge your car.”‘
Aurélie Beauvais, Policy Director, SolarPower Europe added “‘From solar powered vehicles to solar powered charging stations, to the development of innovative solar powered supply offers, solar and electric vehicles are the perfect match. Solar generates mobility and will play a major role in the years to come for European consumers.”
