Transport policy between Green Deal and energy security: Will RED III get the numbers right?
In the transport sector, renewable fuels and electricity shall decrease the carbon footprint by at least 13% in each EU member state by 2030. However, the numbers in current RED III proposals were already raising questions whether our decarbonization path will live up to the urgency of the transformation ahead. Given the situation currently unfolding, the transformation becomes ever more urgent yet complex.
So how does the war affect our models and assumptions regarding green transport? How does it affect the RED III negotiations in terms of targets, priorities and instruments? What are the options at hand to decrease our energy dependency on Russia and decarbonize the transport sector at the same time? Does climate need to take a step back, or shall we even unlock further renewable potential to pursue more ambitious targets?
