Upcoming Clean Power for Transport European strategy

The Commission presented some of the main points of its Clean Power for Transport strategy, which will be presented to the EP´s transport committee on 19 February.

Europe´s dependence on oil as no less than 94% of transport uses it, of which 84.3% is imported. However, support is needed if vehicles running on these alternative fuels are to take off. 

Alternative fuels might be the solution to reducing transport´s impact on the environment but they are being held back by low consumer demand caused by high prices and a lack of recharging and refuelling stations, which in turn discourage consumers from buying green cars.

The Commission is proposing a package of binding targets on member states for a minimum level of infrastructure for clean fuels.
