Smart Electric Vehicle Value Chains

Smart Electric Vehicle Value Chains

Objective

The objectives of sustainable road mobility, i.e. energy efficiency, climate protection, and zero emissions, imply a paradigm shift in the concept of the automobile regarding its architecture, design, materials, and propulsion technology. The fully electric vehicle (FEV) is widely considered the most suitable option for the 'green' car of the future, even though it is still facing a multitude of major challenges in terms of product maturityIn order to maintain its role as the world's largest producer of cars, Europe has to anticipate the challenges of a move towards the FEV and adapt its automotive value chain to them in due time. The proposed Coordination Action Smart EV-VC will develop, recommend and initiate a multitude of tangible measures for this purpose, including the definition of common goals in terms of unique selling points of the FEV made in Europe, the compilation of a European roadmap, the promotion of novel links in the European FEV value chain by e.g. developing harmonized curricula for education and training, initiating standards, and drafting concepts for shared facilities as well as giving advice for the inclusion of small and medium sized enterprises (SME).Based on initial FEV related technology roadmap activities by members of the European Technology Platforms EPoSS, ERTRAC, and SmartGrids in the Public-Private Partnership European Green Cars Initiative, and sustaining the work carried out previously within projects funded under the umbrella of this initiative, the Smart EV-VC project will compile a dedicated implementation agenda in preparation of Horizon 2020, also aiming at coherences and complementarities of EU and members states programmes. It will cover strategic research, development and innovation for the FEV "made in Europe" with a particular focus on ICT and smart systems as key enabling technologies.
