His presentation slides are available for download.

Max Grünig's presentation contained the following key results:

  • The total costs for electric mobility vehicles currently still exceed the costs of comparable conventional vehicles.
  • Falling production costs create lower consumer prices and cause an increase in

Impacts of Electric Vehicles - Summary Report

Report for the Directorate General Climate
Electric vehicles have the potential for significant contributions towards achieving the EU’s climate protection goals in the transport sector. However, the environmental impacts of a large scale introduction of electric vehicles are still unknown. This project has developed scenarios for the increased dissemination of electric vehicles in the EU until 2050 and formulated policy recommendations from these findings. The full report of this project is available for download.Read more

Shifting Renewable Energy in Transport into the Next Gear

Developing a methodology for taking into account all electricity, hydrogen and methane from renewable sources in the 10% transport target - Report for the Directorate General Energy
The European Union (EU) wants to increase the share of renewable energy in the transport sector to 10% by 2020. This 10% target was set in the Renewable Energy Directive (RED). However, it currently focuses on the use of biofuels in transport and assumes a grid-average for electricity used in transport. No methodology is available for biomethane and hydrogen from renewable sources. The study "Shifting Renewable Energy in Transport into the Next Gear" was performed to determine whether there are conditions under which it is possible and beneficial to amend the RED to include new methodologies for renewable electricity, hydrogen and biomethane to count towards the 10% transport target. The final report is available for download.Read more

The amended German car labeling regulation (Pkw-EnVKV) entered into force on 1 December 2011. The regulation requires car manufacturers, dealers and leasing companies to provide information about the CO2Read more

Changing Climate – Changing Transport

TimeLoc
7 March 2013
Berlin
Germany

Even though the "Energiewende", the long-term energy transformation, may be the talk of the town, what happens in transport policy is at least as important for the success or failure of German climate policies. The situation is complex: on the one hand, there is a range of promising projects, initiatives and innovative solutions for sustainable transport. On the other hand, transport volumes are growing along with the economy, and individual mobility is on the rise. As part of the Brühl expert discussion, a panel of distinguished experts, moderated by Benjamin Görlach of the EcologicRead more
