STEAM Event – Goodenough batteries: Lithium and the European supply chain strategy – 23 November 2022

The electrification of Europe’s road transport is a commonly accepted reality – and with it a need for critical raw materials such as Lithium and rare earth minerals to build the Lithium-Ion Batteries powering Europe’s electric vehicles.

To ensure this need is met, EU policy initiatives such as the upcoming Raw Materials Act must strike a careful balance between supply chain diversification, identifying and acquiring reliable long-term partners, and proper incentives and regulatory conditions for domestic production, where feasible. Raw materials for European EV Batteries must be sourced sustainably and with respect for the environment and the people involved in or affected by their extraction, refining, transport, and recycling.

AVERE’s event brought together industry representatives from all along the Lithium and Battery Value Chain, civil society representatives and key European decision-makers to discuss how Europe can scale up its domestic battery production quickly and sustainably.


2035: Thriving & Driving after the ICE Age – 23 November 2022

2035 is a pivotal year for road transport: the sales of Internal Combustion Engine vehicles will cease across the European Union. It is the year that marks the end of the ICE age.

This is the epochal change we need to address climate change and be in line with the targets of COP20: companies building and selling road vehicles must prepare for this change and move forward once it takes place. AVERE set a vision of how this should be done, putting e-mobility at the centre of the future of sustainable transport.

Our members see this vision as providing a roadmap for the following steps to guide their commitment and show them how to address key points to guarantee the success of the European electric vehicle manufacturing sector.

AVERE welcomed its vehicles members’ directors and managers in Brussels on November 23 to discuss how they see this vision.


STEAM Event – Joule for Weights: Electricity as a means for Heavy Duty Vehicles’ Decarbonisation – 19 October 2022

Trucks, lorries, buses and coaches make our daily lives function smoothly. However, they are also responsible for about a quarter of CO2 emissions from road transport in the EU and some 6% of total EU emissions. Their full decarbonisation is a precondition for the EU’s aim of reaching climate neutrality in 2050.

The European Commission is poised to present revised CO2 Emissions Standards for Heavy Duty Vehicles. The industry and civil society have prepared for this legislative change and have developed proposals and solutions to ensure Europe’s Heavy Duty Vehicles become Emissions free by 2050.

Against this background, the event brought them together to discuss what is needed and what are the next steps to achieve this objective.

STEAM Webinar – Watt-ever it takes: making our buildings EV friendly – 23 September 2022

Over the past decade, electromobility has been steadily growing in Europe, with large numbers of electric vehicles arriving on the roads.

As more than 70% of all energy is charged at home or the office in Europe, we must ensure that residential and non-residential buildings become enablers of the transition towards electromobility.

As a response to this, the European Commission published, in December 2021, a revision proposal of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, which includes further provisions to support the roll-out of private charging stations for electric vehicles.

The goal of this webinar was to take stock of the changes proposed by the Commission, the European Parliament lawmakers’ views and the demands of the private stakeholders and EV users.
