Clean and energy efficient vehicles have an important role to play in achieving EU policy objectives of reducing energy consumption, CO2 emissions, and pollutant emissions.
The Directive on the Promotion of Clean and Energy Efficient Road Transport Vehicles aims at a broad market introduction of environmentally-friendly vehicles. It addresses purchases of vehicles for public transport services.
Clean Transport Systems can fully meet the energy demand of the transport sector. Alternative low-carbon fuels should gradually substitute fossil fuels for transport propulsion in the long term.
