Vehicles and Fuels

In the area of vehicles and fuels, we address key subtopics that drive sustainable transport practices. The introduction of e-mobility, including electric cars, bikes and scooters, has great potential to reduce both local air pollution and carbon emissions. In addition, fuel efficiency initiatives play an important role in promoting sustainable transport by encouraging the development and use of energy efficient vehicles. Research into and introduction of alternative fuels, such as second-generation biofuels or hydrogen, offer promising solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels. In aviation and shipping, it is imperative to address the environmental impacts of these sectors and work towards the implementation of cleaner technologies and practices. The availability of subsidies and the introduction of appropriate fiscal measures can encourage the use of cleaner vehicles and fuels, thereby accelerating the transition to a more sustainable transport system.
