Today’s fuel market and transport sector are facing serious challenges that mean unprecedented changes in the respective market and those changes are taking place already today. Beside the environment the biggest winner is the one who adapts the fastest to these changes.

The severity of the problem is that transport, representing 27% of Europe’s carbon emissions, is the biggest source of EU’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. Furthermore, transport is the only sector where GHG emissions have grown since 1990 and is the main cause of air pollution in cities. Since 1970, GHG emissions from the transport sector have more than doubled. Lowering emissions in the transport sector is a very big challenge globally and achieving low-emission mobility needs radical changes. To solve the problem the European Commission adopted at the end of last year a long-term strategy for 2050 “A Clean Planet for All”. The new strategy stipulates that all transport modes shall contribute to the decarbonisation of the mobility system. The main goal of the strategy is to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Therefore, the transition to low and zero emission vehicles is vitally important. The European Commission supports the transition to cleaner fuels such as CNG and LNG (with high blends of bio-methane) and hydrogen or other energy storage technology in case of electrical vehicles.

In this context, the focus of the conference is on the changes taking place already now in fuel and transport sector. Those changes are irreversible and inevitable. The conference focuses on gaseous fuels – CNG, LNG and bio-methane – and raises the question what additionally can and shall be done for establishing CNG filling stations into small cities and rural areas. Important part of the conference is also electrical vehicles and hydrogen. The conference gives the overview about the Europe’s climate and transport policy based on the new EU’s long-term strategy for 2050 “A Clean Planet for All” and it introduces the developments of gaseous fuels infrastructure in Europe. It will answer whether there is a place for diesel in transport. Gaseous fuels – is it right direction? Is there enough gas? What about the electrical vehicle and hydrogen technology?
