The Clean Power for Transport Package released by the European Commission in January 2013 aims to boost the development of a single market for alternative fuels for transport in Europe, which is currently restrained by technological and commercial issues, lack of consumer acceptance and inadequate infrastructure. The market development of alternative fuels and propulsion systems such as natural gas, hydrogen and electricity may present an opportunity to help improve the security of the EU energy supply.

The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking
The conference will assess if the proposals will help achieve this goal and reduce GHG emissions from transport as well as support Europe’s economic growth and industrial competitiveness. Will the alternative fuels strategy meet the energy needs of all transport modes and is it consistent with the objectives of the EU 2020 strategy? Is a pan-European fuels strategy achievable and how might infrastructure be best developed and why do standards and approaches continue to differ between countries?
