The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) 2012, taking place from 18 to 22 June, is greening its trips while promoting existing low-carbon and carbon-dioxide-free mobility solutions. In collaboration with AVERE (the European Association for Battery, Hybrid and Fuel cell Electric Vehicles), the EHA (European Hydrogen Association), the FCH-JU (Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking) and HyER (Hydrogen Fuel Cells and Electro-Mobility in European Regions), EUSEW 2012 has set up the ‘CLEAN MOB’ partnership. This is a collaboration including several car manufacturers to promote clean vehicles and to offer stakeholders, media and the general public the opportunity to drive and ride in low-carbon vehicles.
