In December 2012 the European Commission launched the European Electro-mobility Observatory (EEO). The EEO aims to become the reference point for providing insight in the development of electro-mobility in Europe, for national, regional and local policy makers and related public and private stakeholders. As indicated in the recent EU Clean Power for Transport Communication (COM 2013/17) the European Commission will use the EEO to facilitate information exchange and coordinated regional action across the EU on electric vehicle deployment and necessary recharging and refueling infrastructure. The first EEO survey was launched on 30 April 2013, inviting stakeholders to contribute with their input. The EEO team very much appreciates your contribution, or of the right person in your organisation or project, to this short survey (http://ev-observatory.eu/survey/, only 5 minutes to compile!) at your earliest convenience but before May 31, 2013.
