“Scientists submit a plan for CO2-free transportation to government”

Frankfurter Rundschau

A study commissioned by the federal environment ministry (BMUB) has found that Germany can achieve the transition towards an emission-free transportation sector, Frank-Thomas Wenzel writes in Frankfurter Rundschau. The study’s authors regard e-mobility as the key for a successful transition and predict that “individual mobility will become noticeably more expensive”, Wenzel writes. The “most important tool” for energy transition is said to be a “drastic tightening of exhaust emission limits”, the scientists say, according to Wenzel.

See a press release in German on the study on Renewbility’s website.
