Publication of the AG 4 Interim Reports on the Value Chains of Battery Recycling and Electrical Machines 

In two new reports, the AG 4 of NPM calls upon thinking and designing the value chains of batteries and of electric machines, the key drivetrain component of electric vehicles, in closed loops from early on. You can find more information here.

Recommendations for the optimized degree of utilization of plug-in hybrid vehicles published

At the request of the Federal Government, an expert committee of the NPM has developed recommendations for action on the optimized use of plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV). An important result: PHEVs can contribute to reducing CO2 emissions from 50% electric driving onwards and, hence, pave the way for electric mobility. However, there is still considerable backlog, especially when it comes to company cars. More information here.

The steering committee met digitally for the 9th meeting

On behalf of Federal Minister Scheuer, State Secretary Dr. Zieschang could catch up on the numerous ongoing NPM activities on October 8, 2020. The meeting focussed on five new reports from three working groups of the NPM and a report from the Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles (PHEV) task force of the NPM. Find more information here.

The Future
of Mobility

Our mobility is undergoing transition and the next few years will bring major changes. Prosperity, growth and technological developments lead to a more mobile society and new mobility options. At the same time, achieving the German Federal Government’s energy and climate targets will be a central task in the coming years.

To shape this change, the Federal Government has convened the National Platform Future of Mobility (NPM). The aim of the NPM is to develop paths that cross and link modes of transport for a largely greenhouse gas-neutral and environmentally friendly transport system that enables efficient, high-quality, flexible, available, safe, resilient and affordable mobility in both passenger and goods transport.

“In the National Platform Future of Mobility, we think of mobility in a holistic and cross-modal way – to show ways in which our transport system in Germany can be shaped to become climate-friendly, sustainable and affordable in the future, while ensuring Germany maintains competitiveness as a place of production. I am looking forward to continuing the cross-sector cooperation with experts from politics, business, associations and civil society, as I did in the National Platform for Electric Mobility.”

Prof. Dr. Henning Kagermann

Chairman of the Steering Committee of the National Platform Future of Mobility

Answers to your questions

What is the National Platform Future of Mobility?

The National Platform Future of Mobility (NPM) is a body set up by the Federal Government to monitor and analyse current and future trends in the field of mobility. The NPM advises on necessary strategic decisions in the field of mobility and clarifies facts on complex and controversial topics. Based on this, concrete recommendations for action are made to politicians, industry, municipalities and society.

How was the NPM convened?

The establishment of the NPM is based on the coalition agreement of the German Federal Government and was decided upon by the German Federal Cabinet on 19 September 2018. WG 1 “Transport and Climate Change” constitutes the commission also named in the Coalition Agreement: “Future of Affordable and Sustainable Mobility”. The NPM began its work with the constituent meeting of the steering committee on 26 September 2018.

Why does the NPM include the Commission "Future of Sustainable and Affordable Mobility"?

The Commission “The Future of Sustainable and Affordable Mobility” develops recommendations for the German Federal Government on measures to achieve Germany’s climate goals for the transport sector by 2030. Since these recommendations have an influence on the entire transport sector, the Commission is integrated into the NPM as Working Group 1 “Transport and Climate Change”. This enables efficient coordination between the working groups.

What are the objectives of the NPM?

The aim of the NPM is to develop multi-modal and intermodal paths for a largely greenhouse gas-neutral and environmentally friendly transport system. The aim is to make passenger and freight transport an integral part of an efficient, high-quality, flexible, accessible, safe, resilient and affordable mobility system and to contribute to ensuring a competitive mobility economy and to promoting Germany as a centre for employment.
