For the first time, the eu commission also wants to specify binding targets for lowering the carbon dioxide values for trucks to advance climate protection. This reported the economic week before the commission’s planned decision on wednesday (16. May 2018). Accordingly, the co2 value for new trucks from 2019 to 2025 should fall by 15 percent, by 2030 by a total of 30 percent. In 2022, the target should be checked.
The emissions are today 19 percent of the values of 1990, argues the eu commission. Despite the progress in the engines no ruckle is, is above all the fact that today many consumers now order their goods on the internet. In addition, europe has grown together – the exchange of goods transversely through the continent is only possible through the political umbreeches and decisions such as the schengen agreement.
In addition, the goods traffic is increasingly shifted from the rail to the strain. The attempt to make this trend with a truck toll to make way to be seen as failed. To reduce the emissions of good deals, are currently running attempts to supply trucks over overhead lines with electricity. Whether the idea of building a second electricity infrastructure besides the train, ultimately interspersed, must show itself.
In the eu commission, after information from the wirtschaftswoche, ten commissioners used for stricter specifications. The german eu commissioner gunther oettinger has demanded a stronger crediting of electric trucks in the sense of the manufacturer, but not enforced. Electric vice should therefore be credited with a factor two to the targets, oettinger intended to be a factor of funf, which had relieved the manufacturers stronger. The proposal is expected to be on wednesday after the scheduled decision on thursday (17. May 2018) presented in brussel. The european parliament and the member states must agree afterwards.
