Coordination Action on PPP Implementation for Road-Transport Electrification


The Coordination Action CAPIRE will prepare and support the realization of a Public Private Partnership (PPP) sustaining and putting into practice the European Green Cars Initiative. Its activities will be focussed on two major fields: a careful consideration of options for the aims, shape, and implementation paths a PPP, and the identification of technology roadblocks and the respective research needs within FP7. Major outcomes will be an appropriate and proven PPP implementation model and a dedicated roadmap based on an elaborated and deep analysis of R&D needs, respective milestones and supporting measures. The goal is to increase by a joint approach of the involved econmic sectors and the public authorities the competitiveness of global European Automotive Industry in the domain of energy efficient, safe, non-polluting and CO2-free vehicles . To be broad enough, this strategy has to be based on the three following technology pillars:
- Passenger cars and LCV: to reduce local pollution, emission of green house gases, and noise by accelerating electrification of vehicles and provision of a dedicated infrastructure for the connection to CO2-free energy sources
- Trucks and Buses: to improve overall efficiency of transport of people and goods by accelerating the improvement of ICE technologies and their potential partial electrification.
- Logistics: to increase the efficiency of goods transport by optimizing loading rate of trucks and mixing different energy saving transport vectors as rail transport and road transport.
The results of CAPIRE shall serve as a guideline for automotive R&D and European road transport policy related to the Green Cars topic. Their deployment will require a strong cooperation between OEMs, automotive & technology suppliers, road and traffic operators, energy and service providers, Universities and public authorities to reach the ambitious target related to key technologies in a medium and long term perspective.
