More climate protection: How the Greens want to redesign car traffic-climate

The climate goals in the transport sector wobble huge. To achieve them, federal government and auto industry have to quickly put the course for clean drives. And that is, first and foremost: advance the electromobility. If you are hesitation now, that’s not just at the expense of the climate. There is also thousands of jobs in Germany and the prosperity of many regions, such Green Group Chairman Anton Hofreiter in a recent communication, in which he expressly expresses the “Plan E” of his party for climate-friendly mobility.

Small-to-part Murksen a la Andreas Scheuer help not criticize Hofriter. Rather, it needs the big litter. E cars must get out of the niche and purely in the wide market. The Federal Government needs an overarching plan for the conversion to the electromobility: a plan E – for good, sustainable jobs in the auto industry and exhaust-free mobility on the road. In the following the individual points.

  • Bus and train electrify: The roadside needs a strong and climate-friendly public transport. Confederation and countries must therefore give tailwind electric cusses and trams. That is: supporting the acquisition, maintaining and expanding the rail network, remove the loading network for electric breads and upgrading the operationshops.
  • Create clear framework conditions: From 2030 only exhaust-free cars may be released – this is a sophisticated but realistic goal. The exit from the internal combustion engine must be determined by law. That would be a clear timetable, which creates planning security for the auto industry and the employees, and which rages into the plans of many other European countries, which also exit from the fossil combustion.
  • Remove charging infrastructure: The charging infrastructure in Germany is in the dead end. The charging network networks in other countries such as Z.B. the Netherlands are far from Germany. It’s clear: we need a real charging column offensive. This must include both public and private charging stations. Only this creates a nationwide loading network. For the public network, the Federal Government must double its investment program to 600 million euros, so that the 100 paid by the Federal Government.000 new boosts can actually be built by 2020.
  • Remove bureaucratic hurdles: The construction of charging options in residential buildings does not fail in many cases on the money, but on the legal framework. Tenants and owners in multi-family homes must obtain the consent of their landlords or co-owners to install charging points in the underground car park or other householders. We demand: Tenancy law and residential property law must be adapted to allow e-auto drivers to install light loads. It also needs a minimum quota of charging points at the parking spaces when buildings are rebuilt or comprehensively renovated. Every second new parking space should have a loading point, the remaining should be pre-cabled at least for a charging point.
  • From the point of view, think consumers: The loading network must be uniform and easy to use. This requires clear, binding regulations for non-discriminatory and cross-providers at all public charging columns. That means concretely: Each vehicle must be able to load transparent prices at each loading point and with high ease of use. The ranges for electric cars must be increased, in particular of plug-in hybrids. In the latter, the minimum distance size must be raised from 40 to 60 kilometers.
  • Support municipalities: The Electromobility Act and its privileges for e-cars in traffic is so far only used in a few municipalities and therefore could hardly give impetus for electromobility. It is urgent to be revised to give the cities of pragmatic and effective ways for more emission-free vehicles in hand. Above all, more commercial vehicles may benefit from the privileges to support a clean city logistics.
  • Stop misalignment: We finally need effective purchase incentives for e-cars. We want to replace the unsuccessful purchase bonus of the Federal Government through a Clever Bonus Malus system in the car tax. That is, purely electric vehicles should receive a credit, while gap sugars are more involved in the ecological costs. This bonus Malus system is socially eaten and can steer ecologically. And it has to – unlike the current purchase bonus – also for electric light vehicles such as.B. The Renault Twizy apply.
  • Save the budget – reduce diesel subsidies: More than 8 billion euros the federal government, in which he supports the refueling of dirty diesel financially. This subsidization is gradually turned off over the next ten years.
  • The public sector must be a role model: Prototies diesel cars in public car fleets are from yesterday. It requires an electrical procurement offensive for electric cars in the fleet of the federal federal and the country. For federal agencies, the procurement guidelines must apply: if a new car is purchased, an e-car should always take precedence. By the year 2025, all new cars in car fleets of public sector can drive electric.
  • Support employees: Together with the social partners in the automotive industry, we want to arrange a future pact. A right to further education leads to adequate qualification and new perspectives significantly against a threatening job loss. Employees may not charge possible mistakes of management in the structural change of the auto industry. A state transformation short-time child allowance, which is paid for a certain transitional period, should help to support companies and employees on the way to a clean mobility.
  • Batteries as heart: Together with the automotive and supplier industry, we want to make a “future plan battery cell technology” to build them for the automotive value creation central component at the Industrial Office Germany and to secure long-term and in this way to avoid new dependencies, as we are currently at the oil.
