Description of call
"Green Vehicles 2016-2017"

The European Green Vehicles Initiative (EGVI) represents an essential component of road transport research and innovation. It includes research, technological developments, innovation and demonstration in support of improvements in energy efficiency of road transport vehicles and the use of new types of non-conventional energies in road transport such as electricity, compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG), renewable and tailored fuels.


This call has been defined taking into account the other calls and initiatives where the Transport Challenge is concerned, particularly the calls on ‘Mobility for Growth’ and ‘Smart Cities and Communities’, and the ‘Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2’ joint undertakings. Multisectorial research involving other research and innovation areas such as Energy and Environment coupled with research on new materials, advanced production and Information and Communication Technologies will be encouraged, particularly in fields such as advanced energy storage systems and interfaces between vehicles and energy recharging infrastructures.


Specific topics of the call:


  • Optimisation of heavy duty vehicles for alternative fuels use
  • System and cost optimised hybridisation and range externders for road vehicles
  • Next generation electric drivetrains focusing on high efficiency and cost
  • Electric vehicle interior redesign specific for optimised efficiency
  • Physical integration of hybrid and electric vehicle batteries at pack level aiming at increased energy density and efficiency
  • Multi-level modelling and testing of xEVs and their components
  • Super-fast and smart charging of electric vehicles
  • Electrified heavy duty vehicles
  • Aerodynamic and flexible trucks
  • Affordable weight reduction of high-volume vehicles and components taking into account the entire life-cycle
  • Demonstrating (pilots) for integration in urban transport system of electrified L-category vehicles
  • Stimulating European research and development for the implementation and development of future road transport technologies
