Funding for projects related toelectromobility, more green cars, more security, more alternative fuels, less harmful emissions e tax incentives for smart mobility. The European Commission has presented an action plan to strengthen theautomotive industry. The topics covered are numerous, from harmful emissions to road safety, from research toelectromobility, trade negotiations and international harmonization are needed.
All the themes can be collected in four pillars, we will only deal with the first.
- hitech technologies, research and innovation
-Stronger market and smart regulation
- international harmonization of vehicle regulations
- anticipating adaptation and cushioning social impacts
Investing in research and aiming for innovation is the only possibility that the EU has to cut harmful emissions in the transport sector, it would also serve to strengthen the competitiveness of the European automotive industry and maintain the technological leadership between Member States. For now it's there Germany leader of transport technologies and, in favor of electric mobility, the European Union is evaluating with the EIB (European Investment Bank) the possibility of finance projects related to electromobility.
The commission, to obtain a rapid reduction of the effective harmful emissions, intends to define complementary measures for the control of polluting emissions from vehicles in circulation. At the same time, road safety must be reassessed with actions aimed at vehicles, infrastructures and the behavior of motorists. The dissemination of intelligent transport systems (Its) and establish a strategy for i alternative fuels such ashydrogen, L'electricity, sustainable biofuels, natural gas and LPG. In the context of alternative fuels such aselectricity and hydrogen an intervention is needed to establish a minimal spread of the charging stations. Especially for the electric columns, expects a legislative measure to ensure that solutions are implemented throughout the EU to ensure the electric vehicle charging.
The Commission proposal also sees a voluntary program of fuel labeling but also tax incentives granted by Member States for i clean vehicles and energy efficient.
