The European Parliament’s Environment Committee has said that the EU must wean the transport sector off oil entirely within a generation.
In a non-legislative resolution on the European commission’s energy efficiency green paper, MEPs said the move was essential to ensure the EU becomes the world’s most energy efficient economic bloc by 2020. “The EU’s energy strategy should concentrate initially on the total substitution of fossil fuel use in the transport sector by 2030,” says the resolution.
Now I am not a betting person, but what are the chances of Europe’s roads being fossil free by 2020? Anyone taking bets?
