Finland:Transition into a zero-emissions transport system.
Finland is committed to reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The transport sector is preparing to cut its emissions by up to 50 % by 2030. Over the long term, the target in the transport sector is a transition into a zero-emissions transport system.
The country has been working to reduce vehicle kilometers driven especially in urban areas. “Mobility as a Service” and shared transport play major role in it. Mobility as a Service is a model for delivering sustainable transport services that are an alternative to the use of private cars by allowing the personalized use of a bundle of public and private transport means.
Finland has also passed an act on support for acquiring electric cars and converting passenger cars to run on gas or ethanol. According to the law, support of 2,000 euros will be provided for buying a full-electric car or leasing one for a long term.
Team Finland and representatives from Finnish companies and authorities will attend E4SM Forum.
Since September 2017, Japan reaffirmed its commitment to become the world’s first ‘hydrogen society’ by launching a specific national strategy. This strategy, which covers the entire supply chain, primarily aims at achieving the cost parity of hydrogen with competing fuels. To this end, over the past six years, the Japanese government has spent approximately $ 1.5 billion on technology research and development and grants to: Low-cost and emission-free hydrogen production; the development of infrastructure for the importation and domestic distribution of hydrogen; as well as increase the use of hydrogen in various sectors, including mobility.
Japan will be represented at the E4SM 2019 by NEDO, the Organisation for the Development of New Energies and Industrial Technologies. Established in 1980, NEDO is the largest Japanese organisation dedicated to the research, development and promotion of industrial and environmental energy technologies. Its mission is to develop alternative solutions to the use of fossil fuels in order to reduce Japan’s dependence on imported energy sources and contribute to stabilise energy global energy consumption.
26% of the greenhouse gases emitted in Spain come from the transport sector. If nothing is done, these emissions will increase by 15% by 2030. To limit this increase, the government has announced a measure to ban the registration and sale of CO2-emitting vehicles starting in 2040.
