United Kingdom joins EV30@30 campaign to boost electric vehicles

The United Kingdom (UK) and seven major companies joined the EV30@30 campaign

The United Kingdom (UK) and seven major companies joined the EV30@30 campaign, an initiative that seeks to promote deployment of electric vehicles in the market.

The EV30@30 campaign aims to speed up the deployment of electric vehicles and target at least 30 percent new electric vehicle sales by 2030.

Thus, United Kingdom joins Canada, China, Finland, France, India, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden. On the other hand, the companies participating in this project include ChargePoint, Enel X, E.On, Fortum; Iberdrola, the alliance between Renault-Nissan and Mitsubishi, and Vattenfall.

The addition of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), a conglomerate of local players that promote policies and programs aimed at clean energies, generated trust among different international companies. This trend represents a huge step to promote the project.

Purpose of the EV30@30 campaign

The campaign was designed to increase electric vehicle usage and lower CO2 emissions. In order to achieve this, it will support the market for 2-3 wheelers; electric passenger cars, light commercial vans, buses, and trucks.

This proposal, managed by the CEM Electric Vehicles Initiative (IVE), was launched in 2017, during the CEM8.

Since its creation, the EV30@30 campaign has reached about 30 cities in 12 countries that wish to implement this project. The goal is to showcase the positive effects of the energy transition in places that will serve as a development model.

The actions proposed so far involve cooperation between the State and enterprises. In detail, the intent is to support the development of charging stations and monitor their progress; review commitments in the public and private sector so that companies and suppliers introduce electric vehicle fleets, and helping governments that are unable to implement them.

Lastly, they intend to establish the Global EV Pilot City Program, seeking to adapt 100 cities to urban electrification in approximately five years.
