    Will tomorrow’s trucks be safer?

    Trucks are involved in 4,000 fatalities every year. A large reason for this is the design of most of today’s trucks; flat faced with too many blind spots for drivers.

    Grids, renewables and e-mobility: how to get the maximum out of the three

    Electromobility is the most promising future technology to decarbonize road transport. Grid management is critical to electric vehicle adoption. Smart charging is key to minimize the amount of investments needed in the grid. Large scale deployment of EVs represents an opportunity to store large amounts of renewable electricity in batteries, reducing curtailment. EVs can even work as virtual power stations.

    Bringing down CO2 emissions on the road: Is WLTP enough?

    The introduction of the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) is expected to lead to more representative emission measurements than the old NEDC test cycle. However, there will still be a gap between real world emissions and the values measured in the laboratory.

    Future car CO2 standards: Question time

    Future CO2 standards for cars and vans will set important milestones for the future of the EU's car industry, define the speed of transition to e-mobility and determine the climate efforts Member States will make in reducing transport emissions.

    Biofuels, Palm Oil and the REDII: What’s the way forward?

    The debate is kindly hosted by Seán Kelly MEP and Jo Leinen MEP. The review of the EU Renewable Energy Directive is still ongoing and there are major differences between the the EU Parliament’s decision and the EU Council’s general approach on transport. One of the hotly disputed issues is the future of biofuels and especially crop biofuels with high emissions, such as palm oil.

    Truck fuel: less is more

    On the 2nd of May the European Commission will propose its first ever fuel efficiency standards for trucks. Heavy duty vehicles represent 5% of all road vehicles but account for 25% of EU road CO2 emissions. Truck standards are therefore urgently needed. They will save hauliers money, help Europe meet its climate targets and kick start zero emission trucking. But, in order to fully deliver, standards must be both ambitious and well-designed.

    Electrofuels: what role in EU transport decarbonisation?

    The debate about transport fuels decarbonisation is a key issue in the ongoing recast of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II). Renewable fuels produced from electricity have recently drawn a renewed interest in the REDII, but it seems there is very little knowledge about what they are, what type of sustainability safeguards they require and how realistic is their uptake up to 2030. ‘Electrofuels’, ‘e-fuels’, or ‘power to liquids’ what are they exactly? What role do liquid drop-in electrofuels have in the decarbonisation of the transport sector?
