GREAT News, June 2018

Latest updates and installation status from the CEF Action GREAT

An intense spring draws to a close and the Action is still hard at work building infrastructure for e-mobility and g-mobility as well as communicating and disseminating for an increased market share for alternative fuels and AFVs. It has been a pleasure to meet so many dedicated people at for example TEN-T Days, Ekotransport 2030 and Nordic Clean Energy Week. They are all working hard to achieve decarbonisation! GREAT is also proud to be able to boost EV ambassadors in our electric car rally.

In the end of this year we will see deliveries of the reports on Policy Measures and Business Models together with dissemination of our recommendations. We are still putting the fall event schedule in place and we are finalising the dates for Drive Clean in Denmark and Sweden as well as interesting meetings and seminars.

Reports from some of the events this spring is found in this newsletter. Also, make sure not to miss our seminar with the Swedish minister for environment if you are at the Swedish political week Almedalen.

GREAT Predicts: EV infra is heating up

We have seen CPO's being bought by oil companies and with the recent acquisition of Allego by Meridiam we see investment companies also moving into the market. A quite important signal to the market that this is a growing business, worth watching and attractive to invest in.
