A new manifesto for a renewables-based transport sector has been launched, calling for Europe’s politicians to “establish clear parameters for efficient sector coupling so that the expansion of e-mobility, charging infrastructure and renewable energies is advanced more rapidly and more comprehensively than ever before”.

The Manifesto for E-Mobility and Renewable Energy, which was signed by seven mainly German trade associations, argues that “only by reforming regulatory conditions and fueling the legislative fire in favor of e-mobility and sector coupling — the intelligent combining of the electricity, heat and mobility sectors — can the potential for climate protection in the transportation sector be exploited.”
