No time right now?

The federal government is striving for more climate-neutral fuels in transport. This benefits hydrogen production and e-mobility.

By 2030, the proportion of climate-neutral fuels in transport is to increase more strongly than previously planned. It should rise to 22 percent instead of 20 percent, according to an agreement paper issued by the news agency Reuters is available. So far, the proportion has been less than six percent.

Hydrogen and e-mobility will be strengthened

The background to this is more ambitious EU goals. On the one hand, there are new fleet limits for cars and, on the other hand, a truck toll based on CO2 emissions. Climate-neutral fuels are counted positively. Green hydrogen is counted twice, electric cars three times.

New rules will also apply to air traffic: By 2030, two percent of aviation fuel must be generated from renewable energies.
On Thursday, the Bundestag passed the amendment to the Renewable Energy Sources Act, thereby enshrining the goal of becoming greenhouse gas-neutral by 2050.
