Cécile Toubeau, Arndt Neuhaus.

Cecile-Toubeau“Greatly reducing transport’s CO2 emissions requires many measures, and clean electrification of transport will have to be one of them. Today’s deal is a damp squib that does nothing to bring that closer.”

Cécile Toubeau, policy officer at Transport & Environment, is clearly not amused about the EU parliament’s decision to drop all mandatory targets for electric charging stations and refuelling stations for hydrogen, liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG).

Arndt-Neuhaus“With its charging infrastructure, Tesla is using a proprietary system instead of an open system, which has not been proven to be a good way in the IT industry. To be able to quickly become a mass-market phenomena, electric mobility has to be based upon open standards. I need to be able to use any charging point in Europe, regardless of the connector. A proprietary connector is not really helping here.”

Arndt Neuhaus, chairman of the board at german utility RWE, talks to German ‘Automobilwoche’ about Hubject and his thoughts on the Tesla Supercharger network. (in German)
