The Renewable Energy Directive limits the share of unsustainable crop based biofuels and promotes certain types of biofuels produced from a list of materials defined in its Annex IX. This list is the basis for member states to define the different levels of support to different types of biofuels under their national framework.

This short paper summarises Transport and Environment (T&E’s) views of the questions posed by the consultation Introducing E10 to Petrol. T&E is Europe’s foremost sustainable transport think tank and NGO.

Four years on from the Dieselgate scandal - which exposed the failure to curb toxic air pollution from cars and shook confidence in EU emissions regulation - Europe is in the process of setting a new pollutant emissions standard for light and heavy duty vehicles.

The objective of this study is to provide a first assessment of the legal scope for EU or national measures to phase-out ICE vehicles and to identify issues where legal uncertainty remains and further investigation is needed.

Announcement to clarify and bring forward phase-out of cars with engines commended by Transport & Environment. Campaign and research group Transport and Environment UK (T&E) congratulates the UK government for its bold proposal to end sales of all cars with engines within 15 years and, if possible, earlier.

This new report looks in detail at the assumptions and criteria used to determine the "indirect land use change" of biofuels under the UN's carbon offsets scheme for aviation emissions (known as Corsia).

Trucks account for less than 2% of the vehicles on the road but 22% of CO2 emissions from road transport. The relative share of truck emissions is bound to increase as emissions from passenger cars are driven downwards by the surge in the sales of electric cars.

A poll of 12,523 people carried out by YouGov1 in seven European countries reveals that the majority of people under 35 who use taxi services are willing to pay more for zero-emission Uber and taxi rides.

Diesel car sales are in free fall. The Dieselgate scandal caused a collapse in customer confidence exacerbated by increasing restrictions on diesel car use in cities. In an attempt to ensure past investments in diesel technology can provide a return, the car industry claim new diesel cars are now "clean".

After years of slow progress electric vehicles are finally coming to Europe. Driven by the CO2 standards for 2020/21 -that require carmakers to reach on average 5% EV sales share in 2020 and up to 10% in 2021 or face fines -the offer of better performing and more affordable electric vehicles in Europe will at least double.
