Decarbonising Transport

Key messages:

  • Strong policies are needed to push the EU transport system towards adopting zero-emission technologies tailored to the different transport markets across the EU.
  • Short-term transport decarbonisation priorities include the mass adoption of electric vehicles with a low-carbon electricity generation.
  • Investing in charging infrastructure is key to solve the “chicken-egg” problem for the widespread uptake of electric vehicles in urban areas.
  • Hydrogen-based liquid fuels and advanced biofuels will help reduce emissions in hard-to-electrify sectors such as aviation and shipping.
