National Strategy on Electromobility...


The DemoEV project will contribute towards the attainment of a carbon neutral road transportation system in Malta by putting into practice, testing, evaluating and disseminating a number of actions with respect to the achievement of electro mobility.  This, in the long run, will decrease the level of dependency on internal combustion engines which are a major contributing factor to the deteriorating air quality levels in several localities around the Maltese Islands.   

The project will facilitate the attainment of Malta’s targets under the Climate Change and Energy Package. It will also help Malta implement in practice the National Air Quality Plan which puts in practice through several actions the objectives set in both the Climate Change Package and the Air Quality Package.   

The objectives of the project are the following:

  1. To study whether carbon neutrality may be achieved by recharging second generation electric vehicles using photovoltaic systems installed on buildings. 
  2. To evaluate the actual environmental efficiency of second generation electric vehicles  
  3. To convince the target audience to switch to electromobility as opposed to the standard high polluting combustion engine vehicles 
  4. To study the environmental and economic efficiency of different ways of recharging second generation electric vehicles
These objectives will be attained by implementing a pilot project over a period of months that will test and demonstrate a method of transportation that will contribute towards carbon neutrality in land transport. The method will be in the form of a pilot project that will primarily study whether Photovoltaic (PV) panels installed on buildings produce enough energy to recharge an electric vehicle and thus create carbon neutral transportation.
