2. EGVI Impact Assessment 2014 – 2020 unveiled:
One of the General Assembly’s major highlights was the unveiling and the distribution of the EGVI Impact Assessment 2014 – 2020 to EGVIAfor2Zero Members. This study, commissioned by EGVIAfor2Zero to Strategy Engineers, concluded that EGVI has successfully achieved its objectives, leaving a lasting impact on the EU transport technology research and innovation landscape. The initiative played a pivotal role in advancing road transport decarbonisation by integrating cutting-edge technologies. EGVI-funded projects demonstrated tangible advancements in cell and battery pack energy density, as well as holistic energy efficiency for passenger cars and heavy-duty vehicles. Our members had the chance to enjoy the first paper copies of the report.
