Alde Seminar March 15, 2011
Energy infrastructure priorities for 2020 and beyond - A Blueprint for an integrated European energy network - COM(2010)677: Defines EU priority corridors for the transport of electricity, gas and oil. Identifies the energy infrastructure map which will be needed to meet our 2020 energy objectives: hydrogen is mentioned 4 times in this dossier!
Energy 2020, A strategy for competitive, sustainable and secure energy - COM(2010) 639 : defines energy priorities and action-plan for the next ten years; hydrogen is mentioned.
Smart Cities : DG Energy is coordinating this initiative as a joint effort with DG Enterprise and Industry and DG Research, that will select around 30 cities, based on their Sustainable Energy Action Plans: consultation deadline May 13, 2011
Europe 2020 flagships: An Industrial Policy for the Globalisation Era - COM (2010)614 and Innovation Union : could provide a stepping stone for implementation of FCEVs.
EU Clean and Energy Efficient vehicles strategy - COM (2010)186 : sets out a comprehensive strategy for clean and energy efficient vehicles aiming at maximizing the decarbonisation potential in transport particular focus on public procurement vehicles: EHA is part of three Working Groups.
Communication on roadmap for low-carbon economy by 2050, also with a view to determining the necessary scenarios for 2030 : will set out framework of policies and actions in a variety of policy areas, required for shift towards a resource efficient and low-carbon economy.
White paper on Sustainable Transport for Europe : lays out the transport strategy for the next 10 years: came out March 28, 2011 conventionally fuelled cars will be banned from EU cities by 2050.
TEN-T : The Trans European Network for Transport (TEN T) is a multi-billion program to restructure the EU’s road, maritime, rail and aviation infrastructure.
Innovation Union - COM(2010) 546: will use public sector intervention to stimulate the private sector and to remove bottlenecks which stop ideas reaching the market.
