Technology-neutral approach to transport decarbonisation

Ensuring that the EU transitions to low-carbon mobility and improves air quality on a technology-neutral basis is fundamental. Cost-effective solutions for transport decarbonisation are already available.

Current legislation targeting decarbonisation measures only to tailpipe CO2 emissions (tank-to-wheel approach [TtW]), which is misleading when comparing different solutions based on fuels or on energy carriers. To ensure a technology-neutral approach, calculating CO2 emissions on the well-to-wheel (WtW) basis should be adopted. The WtW approach guarantees a fair and complete evaluation of the decarbonisation effect among different solutions, and can boost the introduction of more renewable energy sources in the transportation sector in a cost-effective way.
