Sustainable Mobility
Atelier Mobilite Durable

19 October 2011, 14:00-16:00, Lyon, France

Further information »

This conference on sustainable mobility has been organised by Rhônalpénergie-Environnement (RAEE) and the Rhône-Alpes Region within the framework of the European project ClimactRegions.

Transport is the sector that most emits carbon dioxide (26% of GES emissions in France, 34% of carbon dioxide*). Road transport remains the principal responsible for these numbers. Technical advances, together with an increasingly restrictive regulation, have made vehicles less fuel-consuming and less polluting. But if vehicles consume and pollute less, road traffic, on the other hand, increases. Thus global carbon dioxide emissions by road transport have remained around 130Mt since 2001 (17% above their 1990 level*). It is then necessary to take action over urban and interurban traffics in order to regulate their growth. This issue naturally falls into the scope of the European project ClimactRegions, as it aims at feeding regional policies of fight against greenhouse effect.

  • transport is the fastest growing sector in terms of CO2 emissions
  • in the European Union, transport is the only sector that has increased its CO2 emissions since 1990
  • transport is currently almost exclusively dependent on oil
  • the European Commission hopes that the share of biofuels in overall fuel consumption will be 10% by 2020.

Technological & Instrumental Solutions

The available technologies and solutions related to sustainable transport can be summarised as follows:

  • Introduction and expansion of biofuels in the transport fuel mix;
  • Inter-modality, including the issues of cycling infrastructure;
  • Mobility management, incl. car-pooling;
  • E-mobility and related mobile and wireless communications and technologies.
  • Solar fuelled vehicles, incl. bicycles;
  • Electrical transport, incl. cars.

Carpooling in rural areas, Triangle Region Denmark - ENNEREG Good practice in cooperation in transportation

[EN] The Triangle Region Denmark is implementing a carpooling solution in rural areas based on experiences and knowledge transfer from Vaxjö in Sweden. The carpooling solution was developed in a small village in Vaxjö with 500 inhabitants. The project was developed due to a family’s consideration of buying a second car. The carpooling is circled around a software solution that enables the users to see departure and arrival times for different trips, that is preprogrammed. Unlike other carpooling systems, this is a closed system where everybody knows each other and it gives the users peace of mind.

The carpooling solution is used by commuters, youngsters, and other people who need transport. The solution saves money, the users gets increased mobility, better social relations and at the same time there are less cars and lower carbon dioxide emissions.

Electric mobility centre in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country, Spain - ENNEREG Good Practice in Sustainable Transport

[EN] One of the strategic central themes for the penetration of the electric vehicle is the creation of a critical mass of vehicles. This penetration is going to be very slow during the first few years for several reasons: the renewal of the car fleet is very slow, the car production provided by major manufacturers for the next few years will be very limited and because the first electrical vehicles that will be commercialized will have high prices. For these reasons, the Basque Government tries to ensure that a critical mass of electric vehicles is put into action, to reach the market breaking point as soon as possible.

One of the strategies to achieve this is the Implementation of a Mobility Center. A mobility centre is a is a point of information on the electric vehicle in which people can be informed about aspects of the electric vehicle such as grants, rents, recharging points, e-vehicles models, etc. E-vehicles renting (through Ibilek) and recharging (Ibil) is also possible.

EU Policy & Legislation

Transport is the fastest growing sector in terms of CO2 emissions, in fact it is the only sector of EU-27 that increases its CO2 emissions since 1990*. The latest data of EU show that transport CO2 emissions have grown with 26 % from 1990 to 2007 while all other sectors account for decrease in their CO2 emissions. This makes the issues of sustainable transport technologies and solutions very important and topical under the general EU energy and emission reduction strategy (European Commission 2010).

The European energy strategy for transport has four main priorities:

  • improving the energy efficiency of all modes of transport,
  • increasing the use of alternative and renewable fuels,
  • promoting energy-conscious user behaviour, and
  • promoting integrated transport systems in order to minimise energy use.

EU Directives related to transport issues are:

  • Directive 2003/30/EC of 8 May 2003 on the promotion of the use of biofuels or other renewable fuels for transport, where the main fuels recognized as biofuels are enlisted
  • EU Directive 2009/28/EC or the second EU Renewable Energy Directive that amends and eventually repeals two previous Directives relating to renewable energy. The first of these is EU Directive 2001/77/EC (the ‘first Renewables Directive’) on the promotion of electricity from renewable sources and the second is EU Directive 2003/30/EC on the promotion of the use of biofuels or other renewable fuels for transport, which set out an indicative target of 5.75% for the transport sector in 2010. Directive 2009/28/EC promotes the use of biofuels through a mandatory, binding target: by 2020, 10% of all fuels for (road) transport of EU member states needs to come from biofuels.

A 2009 progress report by the Commission suggests that the EU will fall short of its 2010 renewable energy targets as set out in the first Renewables Directive and the Biofuels Directives. The Commission projects that the EU will achieve 19% instead of the target of 21% of total electricity consumption, and 4% instead of the 5.75% target for the transport sector. The criticisms of the first Renewables and Biofuels Directives and the Commission’s recognition of the weakness of the enforcement regime precipitated a number of changes in the formulation of the second Renewables Directive. First, under the second Renewables Directives the targets themselves are binding.

Furthermore, member states are subject to a range of other obligations under the second Renewables Directive. Member states were obliged to submit a national renewable energy action plan setting out national targets for renewable energy in transport, electricity and heating by 30 June 2010 (Article 4(1)), and must submit a progress report at the end of 2011 and every two years thereafter (Article 22). Where a member state falls below its indicative trajectory, it must submit an amended national action plan setting out ‘adequate a proportionate measures to rejoin’ the indicative trajectory (Article 4(4)). There is also a raft of other obligations on member states that go well beyond the subject matter covered by the two previous Directives. These include obligations relating to:

  • reporting to the Commission on joint projects between member states and projects with ‘third countries’;
  • the responsibilities of the national administrative bodies, and the relevant authorisation, certification and licensing procedures;
  • technical specifications relating to renewable energy equipment;
  • biofuels and bioliquids – including sustainability criteria and verification thereof, and the calculation of the greenhouse gas impact of biofuels and bioliquids; and
  • the use of energy from renewable sources in transport.

Energy Efficiency Transport 345

Energy Efficiency Transport - Green Mobility on the Move

Publication [EN] This publication (2009) from the European Commision cover 34 projects funded by the Intelligent Energy – Europe programme promoting energy efficiency in transport. It indicates that Transport plays an essential role in the social and economic life of every European and accounts for about 20% of Europe’s primary energy consumption. About 98% of the energy used by the transport sector comes from fossil fuels, which makes it a major source of greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. Since transport is the fastest growing sector in terms of energy use the EU is determined to do something about this situation through the STEER programme, a mobility action that addresses energy aspects of transport.
