European transport ministers agree to drive clean energy plan

A Commission proposal to cut the EU transport system’s dependency on fossil fuels were supported at a meeting of transport ministers in Brussels.

The meeting, chaired by the Irish Minister for transport, tourism and sport, Leo Varadkar, discussed plans requiring each member state to provide a minimum number of fuelling points for vehicles powered by electricity, hydrogen, biofuels, and natural gas. These would be installed in public places, on motorways, and in homes and workplaces.

Under the proposal, EU member states will also have to provide regulatory supports and incentives to encourage industry and motorists to utilise clean power vehicles.
