Event | Fuelling Europe’s Future: How the transition from oil changes the economy

The European Climate Foundation and the members of the Fuelling Europe’s Future project are pleased to invite you to the launch of a new report:

Fuelling Europe’s Future: 
How the transition from oil changes the economy

Tuesday 20 February, 12:00–14:30, European Parliament (room: JAN 6Q1)

The event will present latest research on transport trends in the EU and separately in four main automotive markets: Germany, Poland, France and the UK. Key findings on the economy of the electric vehicle transitions and insights into the energy and general security implications of the electric vehicle revolution will be discussed.

  • What are likely deployment scenarios for clean technologies for cars and to what extent can they contribute to meeting the EU’s climate goals?
  • What is the range of possible impacts on consumers from changes to vehicle purchasing costs and overall vehicle running costs?
  • How much would the EU need to invest in charging infrastructure for the agreed vehicle technology scenarios, including reinforcing the electricity grid?
  • What is the likely range of overall impacts on GDP and employment?

As such, the main result of this study is an overview of a structural change to mobility whereby there is an increase in efficiency, a change in drive-train technologies and energy infrastructure for cars, and a shift from imported oil to domestically produced electricity and hydrogen.
