Political will to advance biogas for mobility – A round table discussion with MEP Heidi Hautala
Despite all current efforts from the EU, transport is the only sector which is not decarbonizing and even shows an increase in GHG emissions on a yearly basis since 2014. The need for further actions to reduce emissions in the transport sector must be addressed without delay.
Increasing the use of biogas as a transport fuel is one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transport. However, the current EU regulations are not technology-neutral and hamper the development of renewable alternative fuels.
This webinar will discuss the options how European legislation could better support the uptake of biomethane as a transport fuel. The study ‘Crediting System for Renewable Fuels in EU Emissions Standards for Road Transport’ produced by Frontier Economics for the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy will be also presented.
The webinar will take place on 12 November from 08:30 to 10:00 CET.
