19th European Transport Congress of the EPTS Foundation e.V.
The “European Green Deal” growth strategy of the European Commission encompasses all relevant sectors of the economy, which it aims to transform through a series of ambitious reforms. The Green Deal can be seen as a comprehensive roadmap aimed at making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by reducing greenhouse gas emissions for 50 % to 55 % by 2030 and zero net emissions by 2050.
Transport currently accounts for a quarter of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. The European Green Deal aims to reduce these emissions by 90 % by 2050. Moving towards more sustainable transport means providing innovative, affordable, cleaner, accessible, and healthier alternatives.
Urban areas are the most vulnerable environment. Achieving the Green Deal targets will require a combination of different measures, including clean vehicles, alternative fuels, improvement of public transport, integrated traffic management systems, digitalization of transport, etc.
Smart urban traffic management for sustainable urban mobility and freight.
Digitalisation and automatization of urban mobility and freight.
AI (IoT) in mobility and logistics in urban areas.
New organisational and business models for mobility (as a service) and logistics.
Emission trading and rewarding schemes for transport in urban areas.
Zero and low-emission vehicles for urban mobility and freight.
Innovative alternative fuel (e.g., hydrogen) supply and fuelling systems in urban areas.
Tools and assessment methods for evidence-based policymaking.
COVID-19, mobility behaviour and challenges/opportunities for the Green deal.
