Vois latest survey reports that micro-mobility is reducing car usage across Europe

Monday, 12 de September de 2022

This year’s survey conducted by Voi Technology indicates that, out of 10,000 respondents, 36% of e-scooter riders have greatly or completely reduced their use of private transportation due to micro-mobility. This figure is across all age groups with almost half of respondents aged 45 or over reporting a significant reduction in their use of cars. This survey is conducted annually and this year’s had an added focus on the impact of micro-mobility on user’s car use.

Commission welcomes international condemnation of Russia for violation of aviation rules

Monday, 29 de Augost de 2022

The Commission welcomes the decision by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), to call on the Russian Federation to immediately cease its infractions of international aviation rules, in order to preserve the safety and security of civil aviation. The ICAO decision refers to the violation of Ukraine’s sovereign airspace in the context of Russia’s war of aggression, and to the deliberate and continued violation of several safety requirements in an attempt by the Russian government to circumvent EU sanctions. 

From melted wires to high-performing aero engine components

From melted wires to high-performing aero engine components

Thursday, 25 de Augost de 2022

The aerospace industry is focused on enhancing performance and sustainability while reducing costs. As aerospace components become increasingly complex, innovative manufacturing technologies are needed to meet these goals. Laser wire deposition (LWD) is an emerging additive manufacturing (AM) approach that addresses these needs, but better process control is needed. The EU-funded ASSALA project delivered process monitoring and control tools that will lead to higher-quality parts produced from melted wire faster and at a lower cost than currently possible.

From biomass residues and waste to drop-in aviation fuels

From biomass residues and waste to drop-in aviation fuels

Thursday, 25 de Augost de 2022

Transportation is one of the largest generators of greenhouse gas emissions. Advanced liquid biofuels could play a significant role in achieving the goals of the European Green Deal, particularly a 90 % reduction in transport emissions and climate neutrality by 2050. The EU-funded HyFlexFuel project brought together 11 European partners with expertise throughout the biofuel production chain. The team successfully turned a wide variety of low cost, abundant and sustainable feedstock into advanced biofuels.

The Vehicle authentication enhanced with misbehaviour detection.

The Vehicle authentication enhanced with misbehaviour detection.

Monday, 8 de Augost de 2022

The “Vehicle authentication enhanced with misbehaviour detection” innovation aims to enhance authentication efficiency in highly dense vehicular scenarios with the use of probabilistic data signatures which keep the end-to-end latency and false positive rate at controllable levels; ii) identify (detect and localize) vehicular misbehaviour in real-time through the exploitation of spatiotemporal data (e.g., vehicle’s position, speed, acceleration, heading angle) cross-correlations and extraction of the underlying vehicle dynamics in a mobility model-agnostic manner.

BEPA and Batteries Europe merge Working Groups and will write joint SRIA

Friday, 22 de July de 2022

BEPA and Batteries Europe are in the process of establishing integrated Working Groups. This means that BEPA members are automatically invited to join the work done by Batteries Europe on establishing the current state of play of the European battery innovation landscape and what research needs need to be tackled to meet Europe’s climate targets. Both initiatives will work together on a joint Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), creating one document to highlight the most urgent research needs in Europe.

Commission proposes gas demand reduction plan to prepare EU for supply cuts

Commission proposes gas demand reduction plan to prepare EU for supply cuts

Thursday, 21 de July de 2022

The European Union faces the risk of further gas supply cuts from Russia, due to the Kremlin's weaponisation of gas exports, with almost half of our Member States already affected by reduced deliveries. The Commission is therefore proposing today a new legislative tool and a European Gas Demand Reduction Plan, to reduce gas use in Europe by 15% until next spring. All consumers, public administrations, households, owners of public buildings, power suppliers and industry can and should take measures to save gas. 

EU is still the leader in car parts export

EU is still the leader in car parts export

Thursday, 21 de July de 2022

The European automotive supply industry remains the leader in global exports, while feeling the heat from China. Since 2018, China’s sales of automotive components abroad surpassed those of the US and Japan, ranking second after the EU. As of the first quarter of 2022, EU and the US have overtaken China and Japan as preferred destinations for Foreign Direct Investment in the automotive components industry.

Lighter, cheaper, higher-density lithium batteries on the horizon

Lighter, cheaper, higher-density lithium batteries on the horizon

Monday, 18 de July de 2022

An EU initiative could lead to batteries that can store more energy per unit weight and volume, based on the long-lasting quest of using pure lithium metal in the battery anode. The design is part of the forward-looking concept for developing safe solid-state batteries, eliminating the need for a liquid electrolyte between the battery’s two electrodes.
