“Clean Fuels in the Baltic Sea Region – Driving Straight Towards Climate-Neutral Mobility?!”

The transport sector is the second largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions in the EU. To overcome the challenges of climate change and environmental degradation, the European Commission presented the European Green Deal, a set of policy initiatives with the aim of making Europe climate-neutral by 2050.

Some member states and regions have set high ambitions and implemented strong measures in the deployment of clean fuels. Still, the level of ambition in target setting and policy proposals varies greatly between member states. In order to achieve the climate targets set by the international community in the Paris Agreement, the EU needs to accelerate the uptake of zero-emission vehicles and the related infrastructure. Efforts will need to be considerably higher both on a European and national level.

At the BSR Access Clean Fuel Agora on 9th June 2021, hosted by the Joint Spatial Planning Department Berlin-Brandenburg, the status quo of clean fuel deployment in the Baltic Sea Region (→ report) and the BSR Access position paper on clean fuels deployment (→ summary, → full version) has been presented and discussed with 50 participants from all over the Baltic Sea Region. Organised as online meeting place for experts, practitioners and officials across the national borders, thematic sectors and administrative levels in the Baltic Sea Region, following questions were raised:

  • Is the Baltic Sea Region a front-runner in clean fuel deployment?
  • How to collaboratively govern the transition to zero-emission mobility?

With the attendance of the European Coordinator for the North Sea-Baltic Core Network Corridor, Catherine Trautmann, the Prioroity Area Coordinator Transport of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, Thomas Erlandson and other distinguished speakers, the panelists clearly committed themselves to accelerate clean fuel deployment in the Baltic Sea Region by better collaboration to coordinate the process of transition towards zero emission transport acrosss borders. The discussion on how to organise coordinative measures shall be continued after the summer break under the umbrella of the EUSBSR Priority Area Transport.
