Friends of the Earth Europe, Greenpeace European Unit and Transport & Environment are seeking an expert to carry out a study on the subject, “Can we make electric cars truly ‘green’?”
The deadline for proposals is 5 June.
The terms of reference for the study state, “The crucial question is: How can electric cars become part of the solution for climate change and not part of the problem? This study should address what can be done at a European level to achieve such an outcome.”
The goal of the study is to “establish regulatory options for the EU to ensure that climate policies in road transport result in a push for electricity from renewable sources rather than coal and nuclear, or unsustainable biofuels, thereby making a maximum contribution to overall GHG (greenhouse gas) reductions.”
