We have sent an open letter, which we co-signed alongside Transport & Environment, and ECOS, Iberdrola, ChargePoint, EVBOX, Volvo, UFE, FPPE, Vattenfall, Eurelectric, Greenway, ECI, Arrival, and Allego.
Banning the sale of combustion engine vehicles, including e-fuels, after 2035 is crucial to keep the EU on track of achieving its zero emission 2050 goal.
The use of synthetic petrol and diesel as a technology to decarbonise cars is far less efficient than direct electrification both commercially and in terms of overall energy conversion. Using e-fuels in cars will therefore divert clean electricity out from the rest of the EU economy and put at risk the decarbonisation of sectors where such carbon-neutral fuels may be the only viable option, such as aviation and shipping.
We are calling on policy makers to show leadership on climate change and industrial vision.
