Stakeholder Press Release: New CO2 Emission Targets for Cars

On 8 November, the European Commission published its clean mobility package. The central piece of this package was the proposal on the reduction of CO2 emissions from passenger cars between 2020 and 2030. This regulatory proposal was much awaited as it will be a decisive tool for the EU to reach its objectives in terms of reductions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and air pollutants. Ambitious CO2 targets will also have a direct impact on European consumers who would benefit from improvements in the cost of owning and using a vehicle. Disappointingly, the Commission’s legal proposal lacks the necessary ambition which BEUC considers necessary to deliver real benefits to European consumers. We therefore call upon the European Parliament and the Member States to strengthen this legislative proposal. Here are BEUC’s first policy recommendations in view of the co-decision process.

Stakeholder Press Release: Newly agreed EU buildings law to require buildings’ “readiness” for electric vehicles

After lengthy negotiations the European Parliament and EU Member States late last month came to an agreement over new rules regulating energy performance in buildings. Though significantly watered down from the European Commission’s initial legislative proposal, and far from meeting Bellona’s vision, the new directive mandates the installation of at least one charge point in larger, new non-residential buildings. While symbolically important for both consumers and industry, in practical terms, the new directive will have marginal implications for electro-mobility infrastructure roll-out.
