A broad alliance from research and industry, including ifeu, is calling on the German government to provide federal funding for application-oriented research into electromobility in the 2024 budget and beyond. In an open letter, the signatories address the federal government, which plans to massively reduce funding for "measures for the further development of electromobility" in the Climate and Transformation Fund from the 2024 budget year and then phase it out.
