TNO participation in Coast 2 Coast e-Mobility Program

22 Sep 2015

TNO joins The Coast to Coast E-Mobility Connection, an agreement between California and The Netherlands on Smart- and E-Mobility.

C2C is a public-private partnership that aims to promote knowledge and innovation exchange between Dutch and U.S. governments, knowledge institutes and companies; to strengthen bilateral relations between decision-makers; and, to help position (private) organizations in relevant Smart e-Mobility markets.

California and The Netherlands are global leaders on Smart e-Mobility. In 2013 Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency, and Minister Mansveld of Infrastructure and Environment signed a strategic agreement on Smart e-Mobility cooperation and stimulation. Since then several activities have been initiated and missions have been organized. Examples are the visit of Minister Ploumen on sustainability & EV in February 2015 and the mission on automated driving with Minister Schultz in November.

TNO has an excellent position on Sustainability, Smart & eMobility, joining this partnership is of mutual benefit. TNO can export their unique knowledge in this international partnership and all partners can profit of this knowledge. Initial focus will be on topics sustainable energy (Solaroad), automated driving and electric vehicles. Connected topics like smart grids and smart cities might follow.
