Stakeholder Press Release: Incoming EU transport boss charts course for clean shipping but is less certain on sustainable cars and planes

By Transport & Environment

The EU transport commissioner-designate today committed to greater European action on maritime emissions, but risked being at odds with public demand to address airlines’ climate impact.

Stakeholder Report: Green powerhouse: A blueprint for battery regulations in Europe

By Transport & Environment

Unlike combustion engines that burn oil, batteries do not burn lithium or other minerals like cobalt and nickel, which can be fully recovered and used again. From a life cycle perspective battery-powered vehicles are already better than engined cars. However, they still have an environmental impact, notably in parts of their manufacturing and metals extraction. This paper, informed by the report available below, outlines T&E’s vision of how an upcoming EU regulation can minimise the environmental impact and maximise both the industrial and climate benefits of batteries in transport.

Event: Electrical Safety & Energy Transition: Preparing Buildings for a Safe Energy Transition (Brussels, 20 November 2019)

The first European electrical safety conference, which is scheduled for 12 to 6 PM on 20 November in Brussels, aims to assess whether the electrical installations and equipment in our homes are safe, and whether, to prepare for the growing electrification, there is a need for strengthened measures to minimize electrical hazards in the housing sector.
