  • Role of transport in the Energy Union draft

    This paper is a six-point reaction to transport-specific elements of a draft Energy Union Communication from 30 January 2015.

    1. Decarbonisation and electrification: good, but more holistic approach would be better

    2. Commitment to CO2 standards, including for heavy goods vehicles: welcome

    3. Aviation and shipping: need targets and measures

    4. No subsidies for gas in transport

    5. Energy subsidies: commitment welcome but specifics needed

    6. Research: redirect transport research resources from aviation to surface transport
