Which charging infrastructure is required to successfully roll out heavy-duty battery electric vehicles?

Electric trucks can help largely to reduce CO2 emissions in the transport sector – but as they usually cover long distances their limited range is a problem that can only be solved by the deployment of a large charging infrastructure network across Europe. In this context a new Fraunhofer ISI study on behalf of the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association (ACEA) analyses possible charging locations for battery electric trucks on the continent. The study is based on data collected from 400,000 trucks and 750,000 stop locations in 35 European countries.

National Cycling Plan: How will Germany become a cycling nation by 2030?

On behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) and coordinated by ifok GmbH, Fraunhofer ISI and the PTV Group have played a key role in developing the National Cycling Plan 3.0. Approaches to further promote cycling in Germany and turn the country into a nation of cyclists by 2030 were developed in a dialogue forum and incorporated into the National Cycling Plan. The plan was presented to the National Cycling Congress (NRVK) by Andreas Scheuer, the Federal Minister of Transport.

Climate-neutral EU: Immediate rigorous action needed

The EU wants to become climate-neutral by 2050. By 2030, greenhouse gas emissions should already be 55 percent lower than 1990 levels. Transport plays a crucial role in meeting these goals. Fraunhofer ISI makes suggeastions for the necessary transformation of European transport policy.

Global atlas of H2 potential will show sustainable locations for the green hydrogen of the future

Germany will continue to rely on energy imports in the long term. Among other things, it will have to import a large share of green hydrogen and its synthesis products from global regions that are rich in wind and solar power. The HyPat project, which is led by Fraunhofer ISI, is developing a comprehensive, global hydrogen atlas, as called for in Germany's National Hydrogen Strategy.
