The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) jointly hosted the Sino-German Innovation Congress on Electro-Mobility, with support of China Automotive Technology and Research Centre (CATARC) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (giz) GmbH, on 23rd October 2015 in the Chinese National Convention Center, Beijing. The conference was split into five main sections with different foci: Market Development of electro-mobility Standards and Regulations of electro-mobility Charging Infrastructure Research and Development on Advanced Technologies Demonstration and Promotion Dr. Wolfgang Scheremet (Director General of BMWi) and Mr. Qu Guochun (Deputy Director General of MIIT) opened the conference with keynote speeches. After this introduction the congress started with its sessions on the annual key topics in electro-mobility.

Monetary purchasing subsidies, super credits, tax exemptions and local incentives for industry and consumers: China is sparing no efforts in its drive towards market expansion for e-mobility. The motives of China’s industrial policy are straightforward, yet environmental protection as a driver is not equally unambiguous. Prevalent coal-fired electricity production is sparking doubts whether an electrification of motorised individual mobility has a positive impact on the climate. A Sino-German cooperation project addresses these issues by assessing the environmental impact of electric vehicles in China. As an important economic driver in China, the automotive sector is a significant provider of employment and shapes technological innovation. It has significantly contributed to China’s unprecedented economic growth over the past decades. Conversely, daunting climate and environmental concerns have cast a shadow on this development. Air pollution, noise, accidents, congestion – the list of very tangible, negative external effects of transport is long. Less perceptible, but…

Supporting Chinese ministries as well as related institutes and think-tanks to gain access to conceptual and technical background in order to introduce Electro-Mobility in China in a climate-friendly and environmental sound way is the main objective of the Sino-German Cooperation Project on Electro Mobility. To implement this objective, the project is structured into 4 components that are now displayed in form of an infographic. If you are interested in the project activities as well as the progress so far, you have now a chance to access the Prezi following the link below.
