“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, we want to present and discuss the status quo of clean fuel deployment in 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, we evaluate:
With the attendance of the Advisors to the European Coordinators, the Managing Authority/Joint Secretariat of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme and the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, our purpose is to create a better basis for an interoperable clean fuel system along the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) core corridors.
The Agora is based on a BSR Access position paper on clean fuel deployment in the Baltic Sea Region. Please find the publication here.
