BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Union agreed on Monday on a target of reducing CO2 emissions from cars by 37.5% within a decade, finally addressing differences between vehicle-producing countries and environmentally conscious lawmakers. 1. Limited charging infrastructure and issues related to access and management of loading facilities have eased the reach of most vehicle segments and markets. Of three national battery exchange drivers (Israel, Denmark and China), only one has existed, and the new drivers, who allow dynamic inductive charging and stationary wireless charging (for buses, trucks and cars), are still in their infancy. Providing electricity to more cars as we drive is one of the keys to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The pace of change could vary considerably from country to country, but electricity could, over time, replace fuels such as gasoline/petrol and diesel. In addition, ZLEV, recorded in 2017 in the Member States with low ZLEV absorption, will no longer be weighted only for motor vehicles between 2025 and 2030, provided that ZLEV`s share in the new registration fleet in the Member States does not exceed 5%. In order to prevent the gap between laboratory-tested and actual emissions from widening, the Commission regularly collects data on actual CO2 emissions and energy consumption of cars and vans from 2021 using on-board fuel consumption monitoring devices (OMFFs). Since 2009, EU legislation has set binding emission targets for new cars and, since 2011, for new vans. On 17 April 2019, the European Parliament and the Council adopted regulation (EU) 2019/631 on CO2 emission standards for new passenger cars and new passenger cars. This regulation came into force on 1 January 2020 and replaced and repealed the regulations (EC) 443/2009 (private cars) and (EU) 510/2011 (Vans).
The 2019/631 REGULATION (EU) sets new EU CO2 emission targets for 2025 and 2030 for both newly registered passenger cars and newly registered vans. “In any European country, electric vehicles are better than petrol or diesel cars. Poland is one of them,” Lucien Mathieu, a transport and e-mobility analyst at T-E, told CHN. Smart charging solutions for fleets of cars, vans and buses can offer an even faster return on investment and should therefore be immediately used to reduce the production costs of electric vehicles and batteries with short-term volume growth. The Paris Agreement is the first legally binding universal global agreement on climate change adopted at the Paris Climate Change Conference (COP21) in December 2015. The exception for manufacturers with fewer than 1,000 cars or vans per year, as well as the exemption for “small series” of cars and vans, were also maintained.
