Europe EV Policy
January 21st, 2014 by Zachary Shahan
I recently had the opportunity to chat with Olivier Onidi, Director of Innovative & Sustainable Mobility in the European Commission, about EU electric vehicle (EV) policy. He had some interesting things to say regarding overall EU policy as well as some country-specific policies. Here is a video of that interview:
Estonia is indeed a strong EV leader, especially in its support of a nationwide fast-charging charging network. It’s a little surprising to see Estonia standing out as such an EV leader, but then again, maybe not.
But “every single [EU] nation is creatively looking at developing policies” to support EVs, and that’s uplifting. Let’s just hope they move closer to the Norway ideal fast!
