Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Transport

One of the priorities for the European Commission is GHG emissions and transport with a document awaited for 2016.  This autumn will be essential for shaping this debate.  Most expect that the post-2020 framework will be markedly different from the existing one, except that the European Commission has confirmed that standards will continue to play a role.  Many, if not all other aspects, are open for discussions.


CEPS Energy Climate House proposes therefore to run a series of workshops complemented by communication and outreach. 


While in the end it will be up to stakeholders who engage to decide on the scope, initially we suggest to focus on
    i) vehicles and
    ii) fuels however acknowledging that there are significant reduction potentials in
    iii) the overall transport system (e.g. ICT, co-modality, green logistics, infrastructure etc.) 


To kick off the process, we propose to hold an initial upon invitation only brainstorming where we bring together some 20 key stakeholders to collect their input and define the work programme. The idea is to follow up the brainstorming with a series of half-day thematic workshops, e.g. engine technology, fuels, transport system, policy etc. The workshops will be followed up reports (to be defined) and complemented by informal processes such as dinners, briefings, outreach and communication.

Date for the brainstorming: 24 September.
