HEL.I.E.V.’s mission is to promote electric mobility as a tool to protect our environment, improve the quality of our life and protect our health and overall wellbeing, especially in densely populated urban regions.
We believe that electromobility is the only way to reduce global energy consumption and maximize the utilization of renewable energy sources in the transportation sector.
HEL.I.E.V. was founded in January 1991 by 36 founding members, mainly scientists and engineers, journalists and persons concerned with the protection of our environment. Full members may be persons, who believe that electric mobility is the only way to protect our environment from the catastrophic use of fossil fuels and the emission of CO2 and many other harmful pollutants.
Furthermore, corporate entities may become members of HEL.I.E.V. if they pursue a similar mission within a scientific, humanitarian or even commercial scope.
HEL.I.E.V. is a full member of AVERE (European Association for Battery, Hybrid and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles) and consequently also a member of WEVA (World Electric Vehicle Association). HEL.I.E.V. is recognized by F.I.A. as the official National Authority for the development and control of the motor sport activity for electric and alternative fuels vehicles in Greece.
HEL.I.E.V. undertakes a number of activities to promote the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles in Greece, with a main focus on the establishment of all relevant legislation and regulations, which should provide the necessary incentives to the public.
