Workshop - Innovation for Carbon Neutral Transport in BSR

14.10.2020 11:00 to 13:00 EEST

EU has already set out a clear vision of how to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. To deliver the European Green Deal, there is a need to rethink policies for clean energy supply across the economy, industry, production and consumption, large-scale infrastructure, transport, food and agriculture, construction, taxation and social benefits. Transport accounts for a quarter of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions, and still growing.

To achieve climate neutrality, a 90% reduction in transport emissions is needed by 2050. Besides other measures, there is need to ramp-up the production and deployment of sustainable alternative transport fuels. By 2025, about 1 million public recharging and refueling stations will be needed for the 13 million zero- and low-emission vehicles expected on European roads. The Commission will support the deployment of public recharging and refueling points where persistent gaps exist, notably for long-distance travel and in less densely populated areas. PA Innovation, PA Transport, PA Energy and HA Climate will at joint seminar explore the status, barriers and opportunities to boost wider use of hydrogen as clean vehicle fuel and as energy storage required for wider deployment of  large-scale offshore wind energy production in BSR.

The workshop is going to be held within the framework of 11th Annual Forum of the EUSBSR.
