Political context
 February 2011: political commitment by EU Heads of
State to reduce emissions by 80-95% below 1990
levels by 2050
 March 2011: roadmap for a competitive low carbon
economy in 2050: 80% reduction in emissions
 March 2011: White Paper on Transport: 60%
reduction in emissions by 2050; 20% by 2030
 Autumn 2011: energy roadmap

How can related GHG emissions be
addressed?
 More efficient vehicles – new engines
and designs
 Cleaner energy – new fuels and
propulsion systems
 More optimal use of transport networks
– information and communication systems

Which policy tools?
 No one solution
 Broad mix of policies will be required
 Technical innovation
 May not be able to contribute all improvements
 Regulation
 Where market failings occur
 Price signals
 Generic and/or specific?
7
Emerging HDV strategy
 Mix of policy instruments
 Engine technologies, aerodynamics etc.
 Eco-driving
 Pricing
 Measurement methodology
 Baseline necessary

Conclusion
 Freight transport is necessary for society and
economic growth
 The challenge is reconciling these necessities
with a CO2 reduction target of 60%
 Innovation and technical development is key
but will not alone achieve stated goals
 Parallel policy instruments are also needed
