Germany’s traffic “possibly a little faster” CO2-neutral

Germany's traffic

Future Mobility Summit hosted from Berlin’s Day Mirror, politicians, industry representatives and activists took a look into the future of mobility. Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier (CDU) was optimistic that Germany‘s transport sector can reach its climate target – CO2 neutrality by 2045, even “possibly a little faster” when alternative drives will continue to be promoted. The purchase bonus for electric cars approximately goes through the ceiling, and thus the demand can continue to be covered, he “requested a proper lookup for the environmental bonus” at the Minister of Finance “.

Altmaier reaffirmed that Germany wants to deny the drive turning technology substance. “We want the most technically best and cheapest solutions to prevail – we leave the market,” he said during the event. Therefore, not only is the construction of a competitive battery cell production in Europe supports, but also the development of synthetic fuels: E-Fuels can also be the millions of still approved combined combined neutral, unless the fuel is made with renewable energies.

But the capacities are still lacking, as Henning Kagermann, chairman of the National Platform Future of Mobility (NPM). E-Fuels is expected in the car area “not too big contribution” to the CO2 reduction. In order to get the stock fleet climate-friendly, additional increases in efficiency, digitization and a shift of traffic on rail and public transport are necessary. The expansion of electromobility should u.a. Be accelerated by a “nationwide customer-friendly and intelligent charging infrastructure”, Kagermann said. He sees the approval of 14 million electric cars as an important measure to reach the climate goals by 2030 as an important measure. With them up to 22 million tonnes of CO2 could be saved.

Wolfgang Langhoff, CEO of BP Europe, said that his company will wool a “tempomacher” of the fuel transition. BP strut until 2030 an increase in renewable energies and reducing oil and gas production by 40 percent. The climate activist of Fridays for Future (FFF) referred to a study by the Wuppertal Institute, which scientifically well establishes the exit from the internal combustion engine until 2025 to achieve the climate goals.

  1. The environmental bonus for electric cars is a good thing, provided that no cars are financed with exhaust. This bonus will also boost the sales of Teslas y. does not matter. Main thing electrically – fully electrical.

  2. Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier – the Oberbremser – as long as the minister stays in office, I see black for CO2 neutrality at the cars up to 2045. Although the number of electric cars is likely to rise, but not the eco-electricity with us in the same or reinforced dimensions as needed.

    The eco-power expansion with us will to prevent the top H2 and e-fuel lobby lauscher to prevent the “dirty coal” as an argument against the battery electric car, for which there is not enough eco flow in the country – see – Also the article about the “170 scientists from all over the world”.

    We have to be vigilant that politics, corporations and scientists “do not bare us”.
