Press Release: New publication sheds light on the power of decentralised databases for climate action initiatives

Despite the overwhelming consensus about the need for collective action to combat climate change and adapt to its effects, global efforts have not yet led to substantial carbon reductions. With the increased recognition that a decentralised, multi-stakeholder, bottom-up approach is required to address this issue, innovative and disruptive technologies have entered the spotlight. However, in the rapidly changing world of digital transformation, keeping up with such initiatives could be challenging.

Stakeholder Press Release: NGVA Europe: Europe needs an open legislative framework to assess fuel solutions on fair terms

Brussels, 12 November 2018: Europe needs an open legislative framework where all solutions contributing to the decarbonization of the transport sector and achieving air quality goals can be assessed on fair terms.

To reach the 2030 targets currently under discussion, engine and vehicle technologies, in combination with low carbon and renewable gaseous fuels, will still have to play an important role in the heavy-duty sector. But the current CO2 tailpipe emissions methodology has to be complemented to consider the contribution from advanced bio and renewable gas.

Natural and renewable gas is an available fuel solution that is ready to play its role today. Renewable gas production is already standard practice, and its availability and vehicle fleet is growing fast.

Therefore, just before the European Parliament’s final vote on the regulation setting CO2 emissions standard for new heavy-duty vehicles, NGVA Europe urges for the inclusion of a new complementary approach.
