European Initiatives


The European Green Cars Initiative
is one of the three Public Private Partnerships (PPP) of the European Economic Recovery Plan announced by the President of the European Commission on the 26th of November 2008. The objective of the initiative is to support R&D on technologies and infrastructures that are essential for achieving breakthroughs in the use of renewable and non-polluting energy sources, safety and traffic fluidity...

Green Cars Initiatives - Projects


ICT4FEV is a Coordination Action in the framwork of the European Green Cars Initiative. The objectives of the project include: to build a R&D community, to edit a European roadmap, to recommend standards, regulations, business cases and R&D priorities, and to establish a European Organization / Think Tank for the FEV.

Electricity Demand and Supply Harmonization for EVs Gloria Pellichek, ERPC GmbH
The e-DASH project aims at the harmonization of electricity demand in Smart Grids for sustainable integration of electric vehicles. Visit the website


The FUEREX project takes on the challenge of simultaneously meeting the tough efficiency, emission, noise vibration and harshness (NVH), integration and cost requirements for a range extender. Each of the requirements can be met separately, but the main challenge lies in meeting them all at the same time - and - at a low enough cost to be a competitive solution for the customer demands.

  Green eMotion

Within the Green Cars Initiative launched in the context of the European Recovery Plan, the European Union supports research and development of road transport solutions which have the potential to achieve a breakthrough in the use of renewable and non-polluting energy sources. With dwindling fossil resources, electromobility and EV become ever more important, especially with respect to climate change. To this end, the project Green eMotion was selected to enable a mass deployment of electromobility in Europe. Visit the website


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.

    EM Safety
The project aims at increasing the public confidence in the safety regarding electromagnetic fields (EMF) in the fully electric vehicles (FEV). Public expectations to move towards the electrification of road transport are driven by a multitude of factors and concerns including: climate change, primary energy dependence and public health as well as cost and scarcity of raw materials.  Visit the website 
At present, motors for FEV (Fully Electric Vehicle) and HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) applications develop their highest efficiency of around 93~95% within a speed range of typically 1/4 to 1/3 of the maximum rotating speed, and at an ideal torque, whereas in real usage - in the majority of driving cycles - the motor operates at a wider range of speeds and at partial load (low torque) resulting in much lower efficiency.

The Surface Transport programme has a Coordinated Action Project called Ulysses.
The principle objective of this coordination action is to construct a platform for exchanging information and strategic planning of EC funded research projects dealing with the new propulsion technologies / concepts based on internal combustion (IC) engines for on-road vehicles.  Visit the website
