    Securing the emissions of greenhouse gases in Netherlands’ transport by 2030 at maximum 25 million tonnes CO2eq or lower will require a wide range of measures. Next to the accelerated market introduction of electric vehicles, continuous efforts to ‘modal shift’ passengers from their own vehicles to public transport and e.g. bikes and optimization of logistics and distribution within urban areas a clear role for renewable fuels is foreseen. They are crucial to reduce the climate impact of the liquid and gaseous fuels, still needed as a large part of the 2030-vehicle fleet still on ICE-drivetrains (both light and heavy duty).
    In this third public autumn seminar the Platform highlighted with three key note speakers the necessity to focus on lowering the carbon intensity of liquid (and gaseous) fuels in transport and establishing sustainable supply chains.
