Energy & Climate Change
Several important EU policies and activities aim to decarbonise transport in the years to come. The Energy Union, the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive, the White Paper for transport: all these initiaves aim to halve the use of conventionally-fuelled cars in urban transport by 2030 and to phase them out in cities by 2050.
Achieving these goals will require that innovative mobility solutions are developed in conjunction with new energy storage concepts and technologies. A new cooperation model will also be key to achieve transport decarbonisation at the local level. Different EU programmes and projects already recognize this need (e.g. “smart cities and communities” programme).
Which specific solutions have to be designed today to anticipate the future developments of decarbonised transport? What kind of concrete projects are currently set in the field of clean energies for transport?
In such a perspective, ERRIN organises a seminar on “Energy systems for smart mobility” to discuss how to better anticipate the future challenges. The seminar is organised along with interactive discussions between the panelists and the audience with the participation of the European Commission.
The event will take place on Thrusday the 22nd of June at Polis Offices, Rue du Trône, 98 - 1050 Brussels.
