With the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) the USA adopted in the summer of 2022 a multi-billion package to boost energy transition. Since publication, the American market seems to be gaining in attractiveness in international comparison, European companies are moving away, relocating investments. With the knowledge centre of PtX applications in Europe, this threatens the pre-eminence of European players. With the Net-Zero Industry Act, the EU wants to take action, but is that enough?

With voices from the field and our membership, the presentation of a study by Frontier Economics "Challenges and options for eFuels support in the EU in light of the US IRA" and Ambassador Richard Burt, we highlighted this topic in a number of ways.

Heavy-duty transportation is the backbone of trade and commerce in Europe: Seventy-three per cent of all freight transported by land in the EU is carried by trucks. Alongside rail freight, trucks deliver goods and merchandise safely across Europe. Efficient and integrated supply chains keep our supermarket shelves stocked. As a result, however, heavy-duty transport is responsible for nearly a third of the EU's road transport CO2 emissions.

To tackle this downside and reduce the carbon footprint of trucks and buses, the revision of CO2 emission standards for new heavy-duty vehicles will be of key relevance. It also provides an opportunity to boost renewables and replace fossil fuels.

This crucial topic will be at the heart of the discussion at our event which will address the question of how we can make our supply chains greener without compromising their resilience, and what role renewable fuels can play to facilitate climate-friendly road transport.

 

Introductory Remarks: Dr Monika Griefahn, Chair of the eFuel Alliance

When presented in July 2021 as part of the European Green Deal, the main objective of the ‘Fit for 55’ climate package was to modernise existing legislation in line with the EU's 2030 climate target. Today, with skyrocketing energy costs and looming supply shortages, the ‘Fit for 55’ initiatives have only grown in relevance. Climate policy proposals, such as a revised Renewable Energy Directive can provide vital tools to strengthen Europe's resilience, decisively reduce dependence on fossil fuels and diversify our future energy supply.

Against the backdrop of a tense situation in the energy market, our event brought together leading policymakers, Members of the European Parliament, and prominent companies from our membership. It will take stock of some of the most relevant Fit for 55 proposals currently under discussion and debate critical questions: What adjustments are needed to ensure a secure yet affordable and clean energy supply for EU citizens and businesses? What will be the role of carbon-neutral synthetic fuels, such as eFuels and what is needed to unlock their full potential to speed up the phase-out of fossil fuels and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions? And how will President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act affect the ability of the hydrogen and eFuel economy to take root in Europe?

European shipping is without a doubt the most important sector for European connectivity and prosperity, accounting for two thirds of foreign trade and almost one third of internal EU trade. Unfortunately, these nautical miles come with a cost: Maritime transport from or to EEA ports amount to 11 % of all transport-related emissions of the EU. It is precisely these emissions that the FuelEU Maritime Regulation, proposed by the European Commission as part of the Fit for 55-package in 2021, aims to tackle. With alternative powertrain options being limited in shipping, the main challenge is to substitute fossil fuels with climate-friendly equivalents, such as eFuels, synthetic fuels based on green electricity.

The legislative procedure in the European Union is already full speed ahead, with the vote of the lead Transport Committee TRAN on October 10 and the final plenary vote just a week later. As the Council and the Commission have not included eFuels in their positions, the Parliament’s position is more important than ever for the long-term decarbonization of shipping. Against this background, speakers from politicy, industry and the NGO sector discussed the possibilities of renewable fuels in the maritime sector and which regulatory support is necessary for sustainable, climate-neutral shipping.

39 million motorcycles and scooters were driving on European roads in 2019. They are an integral part of the EU's transportation sector and subject to ambitious EU emission reduction targets.


As two-wheelers present a wide variety of different requirements, a technological mix of electric and sustainable fuels is necessary. A technology open approach is necessary to both address the existing vehicle fleet, production chains and and to pave the way for sustainably powered future models.

In this talk with decision-makers from politics and the industry we discussed how decarbonization efforts in the motorcycle industry are shaping up and how eFuels can contribute to achieve climate-neutrality for two-wheelers.

On July 7, the European Parliament will vote on the Fit for 55 dossier which aims to pave the way to climate-neutral air transport: The ReFuelEU Aviation Regulation. Aviation is responsible for over 13% of the total transport emissions in the EU. It is precisely these emissions that the ReFuelEU aviation regulation is set to gradually reduce with the help of binding quotas for renewable fuels. Synthetic aviation fuels, so-called eFuels which are derived from green hydrogen, play a crucial role in reaching this goal.But to truly achieve climate-neutral air travel and boost the ramp-up of these synthetic aviation fuels, one thing is needed above all else: ambitious quotas.

The challenge is, however, to strike the right balance: What are the technical possibilities for aviation? How can global competitiveness be maintained? Which framework conditions are necessary for this balance? These and other questions were discussed with over 150 participants and experts from eFuels manufacturers, aviation companies as well as NGOs:

  • Impulse from MEP Ciarán Cuffe (Greens/EFA), ReFuelEU Aviation Shadow Rapporteur in TRAN
  • Impulse from MEP Hildegard Bentele (EPP), ReFuelEU Aviation Shadow Rapporteur in ITRE
  • Laurent Donceel, Senior Policy Director, Airlines For Europe
  • Silke Bölts, Aviation Policy Officer, T&E
  • Dr. David Zaziski, Vice President, Infinium
  • Samuel Maubanc, Head of EU Affairs, Neste

The European Union and Japan announced last year their ‘Green Alliance’ to accelerate the transition of both economies towards becoming climate-neutral, circular and resource-efficient in the coming decades. Together Japan and the EU can further increase a global momentum that is gathering pace. The EU and Japan also agree to work together closely on the international stage. Combatting climate change is a global challenge, that needs to be addressed by global cooperation.

Decarbonizing industrial sectors such as power generation and transport that contribute the most to global emissions of greenhouse gases is part of the EU and Japan efforts towards the climate change objectives of the Paris Agreement and reaching carbon neutrality by 2050. This includes substituting fossil-based energy carriers by renewable hydrogen and its derivates and working towards developing a full and accessible hydrogen value chain.

In this event, which was co-organized by the eFuel Alliance & the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation in cooperation with the Delegation of the EU to Japan, experts from Europe, Japan, Switzerland and Chile shared the latest developments on public policies and deployment of large-scale green hydrogen and eFuels production. They also discussed possible cooperation between Europe and Japan and on the international stage in green hydrogen projects.

Climate change is a global challenge that requires global solutions. World-wide partnerships will therefore have to play key role in the transition to a green economy. In the energy sector, international cooperation provides the opportunity to meet individual nations’ energy demands while driving a global transition. Carbon-neutral energy carriers such as green hydrogen offer huge potential – both for the climate and the economy. eFuels, a hydrogen derivative, can be transported over long distances and used in different sectors. But how can countries around the world profit from a global green hydrogen ecosystem? What needs to be done to make energy partnerships a success and what should fair cooperation look like?

Together with leading policymakers, experts, scientists, and companies from around the globe we discussed topics ranging from production and transport of renewable fuels in different regions to the policies required to ensure that everyone wins from global energy partnerships.

Die Überarbeitung der CO2-Flottenregulierung und das vorgeschlagene Verbrennerverbot bestimmen in vielen Ländern die verkehrspolitische Tagesordnung. Dabei gibt es eine Möglichkeit, Verbrennungsmotoren weiterhin zu nutzen, mit eFuels zukünftig klimaneutral: Das Anrechnungssystem für erneuerbare Kraftstoffe.

Während das Potential von mit erneuerbaren Kraftstoffen angetriebenen Verbrennungsmotoren in den Koalitionsverhandlungen der zukünftigen deutschen Regierung eine Rolle spielte, spricht sich die Europäische Kommission gegen eine solche Lösung aus.

Aber sind die Sorgen der Kommission berechtigt?

Würde ein Anrechnungssystem wirklich die Verantwortlichkeiten für das Erreichen der Ziele verwischen – oder könnte es zu einer stärkeren Verknüpfung und Harmonisierung der Regulierungen führen?

Würde es tatsächlich die Effektivität und Effizienz der CO2-Emissionsstandards untergraben – oder bietet es der Automobilindustrie lediglich eine zusätzliche freiwillige Erfüllungsoption?

Würde das Anrechnungssystem den Verwaltungsaufwand und die Komplexität erhöhen – oder können bereits bestehende Verwaltungsstrukturen genutzt werden?

Wir freuen uns, dass wir diese und weitere Fragen mit zahlreichen Teilnehmer:Innen und hochkarätigen Referent:Innen aus Politik und Wirtschaft diskutieren konnten:

  • Einleitende Worte von Dr. Monika Griefahn (niedersächsische Umweltministerin a.D., Sprecherin der eFuel Alliance)
  • Impuls aus der Industrie von Dr. Martin Berger (Vizepräsident für Forschung und Vorentwicklung, MAHLE)
  • Impuls aus der Politik von MdEP Jens Gieseke (Mitglied des Europäischen Parlaments, stellvertretender Vorsitzender des Ausschusses für Verkehr und Tourismus)
  • Abschlussstatement von Sigrid de Vries, Generalsekretärin des Verbandes der Automobilzulieferer (CLEPA), und Dr. Jens Andersen, Generalsekretär des europäischen Verbandes der Erdgasfahrzeuge (NGVA)

Auch präsentierte Frontier Economics, die das Anrechnungssystem im Auftrag des Bundesministeriums für Wirtschaft und Energie entwickelt haben, im Rahmen des Events die neue Studie "Critical review of the European Commission's Impact Assessment".

55% - das ist die magische Zahl, die erfüllt werden muss, um die Treibhausgasemissionen bis zum Ende des Jahrzehnts zu reduzieren und die Weichen zu stellen, damit die Europäische Union ihr Ziel einer klimaneutralen Wirtschaft bis 2050 erreichen kann.  Um eine nachhaltigere Union zu schaffen, wird sich unser Alltag deutlich verändern müssen. Wird das Fit für 55-Paket in der Lage sein, die notwendigen dafür Grundlagen zu schaffen? Wie fit ist die überarbeitete klimapolitische EU-Gesetzgebung wirklich, um die anstehenden Herausforderungen zu bewältigen und die drohende Klimakrise abzuwenden? Wie muss eine zukunftsfähige Klimapolitik aussehen, um die europäische Energie- und Mobilitätswende zu meistern, eine nachhaltige Wirtschaft zu befeuern und den Grünen Deal zu einer Erfolgsgeschichte zu führen? Diese und weitere Fragen konnten wir, nach einleitenden Bemerkungen von Dr. Monika Griefahn(Vorstandsvorsitzende der eFuel Alliance, ehem. niedersächsische Ministerin für Umwelt), gemeinsam mit führenden Politiker/-innen, prominenten Vertreter/-innen aus unserer Mitgliedschaft und über 270 Teilnehmenden intensiv diskutieren.

Was ist Technologieneutralität? Ist sie nur eine Ausrede für Nichtstun, wie manche Kritiker behaupten? Oder sollten Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft vielmehr auf die Vielfalt der verfügbaren Technologien setzen, um Wettbewerb zu ermöglichen? Und wenn ja:

Können die Klimaziele durch diesen Wettbewerb der Technologien erreicht werden? Wer sollte entscheiden, welche Technologien am sinnvollsten sind?   Wie können ambitionierte Klimaziele erreicht werden und wie sollte der regulatorische Rahmen dafür aussehen? Wie müssen wir die verschiedenen Sektoren verbinden, damit sie sich gegenseitig unterstützen?

Diese und zahlreiche andere Fragen haben wir mit unseren Rednern Dr. Uwe Gackstatter (Vorsitzender des Bereichsvorstands Powertrain Solutions, Robert Bosch GmbH), Jakob Lagercrantz (Geschäftsführer, 2030-Sekretariat Schweden), Dr. Philipp Furler (Technischer Direktor, Synhelion) und Matthias Maedge (Politischer Direktor, Internationale Straßentransport Union (IRU)) in der Veranstaltung "Mehr Auswahl. Weniger Emissionen. –  Warum Technologieneutralität der Schlüssel zum Erreichen der EU-Klimaziele ist" am 15.06.2021 diskutiert. Wir freuen uns außerdem, Dr. Monika Griefahn (ehem.
