Electric Vehicles Conference Overview of European Member States Policy Policy and Activities in electric mobility in Luxembourg Michel Schaus
2 Luxemburgs Governement aims at 10% of electric vehicle part in sales by 2020, representing 40.000 vehicles. The Grand Duchy is the ideal application for electric mobility: Very limited expanse (N-S 87km, W-E 57km) Short average rides (57km/day) strong purchasing power strong environmental awareness 10% E-mobility outlook Luxemburg forecast 2020
3 National groundwork As of today no fully structured national approach in Luxembourg no regulatory framework The Ministry of Economics and Foreign Trade, Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure and the National Regulation Institute are currently reflecting on: Positioning of the Government, Public actors role determination Activation of governmental financing for charging network Implementation of charging stations in electricity grid operator Governmental support for pilot projects Incentives for potential EV customers (taxes, parking spaces,..) Financial support for EV buyers In order to do so, the two Ministries charged a specialized counsel to make an all-around study of e-mobility potential in Luxembourg & deployment of national development strategy which was published in December 2011 and which will certainly help pushing forward the discussions in this field.
4 State of discussions Several actors on the market have started positioning themselves different on points. Consensus amongst actors in Luxembourg regarding: type of charging infrastructure functionalities of charging infrastructure payment modalities No consensus has yet been reached regarding: split between public and private charging infrastructure supply model financing organisation of installation and operation of charging infrastructure
5 State of discussions Therefore actors ask for regulation on: way of supply of charging infrastructure qualification of operator of charging infrastructure, e.g. as supplier type of plug in light of standardisation parking situation of electric vehicles, i.e. the need to have separated parking lots with charging stations the installation of wall-boxes in private households willing to charge their electric vehicles at home
6 Initiatives throughout Luxembourg Different actors in Luxembourg have started taking initiatives: Several communes already installed charging stations Pilot Project – Nordstad eMovin Nordstad is an association of 6 northern municipalities forming a rural/urban region Nordstad is experimenting on the possibilities of integrating electric mobility (E-cars & E-bicycles) into an existing mobility environment through a car-sharing system The project started in July 2011 for a period of 24 months Small local suppliers propose packages including charging infrastructure The company CityMov developed a system of car-/bike-sharing in and around Luxembourg city
7 Initiatives throughout Luxembourg Different actors in Luxembourg have started taking initiatives: ZAC eMovin: a car sharing project in the business area of Luxembourg city which started in July 2011 for a period of 24 months and in which Enovos is involved with different partners a big Luxemburgish supermarket chain will install charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and bikes in 7 of its markets
8 Electric mobility in the Enovos group Activities of the Enovos group Since 2009, Enovos is active in the domain of Electromobility through participation in working groups and international seminars. 2 actors: Enovos Luxembourg S.A. : Energy supplier, commercial activities Creos Luxembourg S.A. : Regulated national grid operator 2 domains: Infrastructure, deployment of charging stations Commercialisation, development & sales of e.mobility products
9 Enovos e.mobility – Information Enovos promotes sustainable mobility 1. Through the elektromobiliteit.lu platform Since 2010 and in cooperation with the Public Research Centre Henri Tudor., Enovos invests as a founding member in a coherent development of electric mobility in Luxemburg, by gathering over 100 members from the Economic, Industrial and Public sectors. The main activities of elektromobiliteit.lu are: Proposal of innovative solutions for Luxemburg as well as recommendations to the orientation of the national politics. Offering end-users an official, centralized contact point and professional advice through its active members Information and know-how exchange, setup of national & international networking
10 Enovos e.mobility – Information Enovos promotes sustainable mobility Offering access to commercial intelligence and technology watch to its members 2.Through the emobility fair Enovos organized for the first time in 2011 the e.mobility fair in Luxembourg, in cooperation with KlimaWelt and the Public Research Centre Henri Tudor.
11 The Enovos group today offers a variety of all-in-one packages combining ease of use by regrouping all the aspects of electric mobility. All costs grouped in one monthly fee Charging station plus installation Maintenance & operation Electric Vehicles Operational leasing including maintenance, tires, insurance, taxes, road assitance Solutions for parking & energy supply In cooperation with strong partners such as PSA Group (Peugeot Citroën), Renault, Nissan, Mercedes, Leaseplan, Enovos is in a position to offer packages with high quality standards and great flexibility by integrating different performant systems. Enovos has itself two electric cars in its fleet of vehicles. As of today, Enovos has installed 7 charging stations in Luxembourg. Enovos e.mobility packages Enovos e.mobility – Commercial activities
12 Enovos e.mobility is 100% green: In combination with Enovos mobistroum, Enovos guarantees that the e-mobility packages are 100% green. Enovos delivers only renewable energy through charging infrastructure, based on water and wind electricity. This contributes directly to the diminution of Greenhouse Gases linked to road traffic. Possibility of extension by installing renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic modules (PV car/motoports can directly feed green energy to the electric vehicle) Enovos e.mobility – Ideology Enovos mobistroum: A sustainable way of moving forward
