Wer von Fahrverboten spricht, verhindert Umweltschutz

Framing-Check: "Fahrverbot"
The use of the term "driving ban" can give the impression of a general and comprehensive ban on driving. In this sense, it means, rather, a ban on mobility. The term thus does not only suggest a banishment, but also an interference in the personal freedom of all drivers, not only of diesel drivers. "Traffic restrictions" is the more precise term with respect to the content. Dr. Nils Meyer-Ohlendorf, Head of International and European Governance, and Katharina Umpfenbach, Coordinator Energy of the Ecologic Institute, discuss this in the Süddeutsche Zeitung. The article is available online.Read more

The Use and Share of Feedstocks for Biofuels in Selected EU Countries

January 2019 to February 2019
Biofuels form a large part of renewable energy consumption in the transport sector in the EU. The use of biofuels has many challenges for consumers and it is therefore necessary to better understand the different problems and trends of consumption in the EU. "Study on the use of feedstocks for biofuels in selected EU countries" evaluates the availability of data on different sustainability aspects of biofuels in selected EU member states. In addition, it provides information on relevant policy measures to support biofuel consumption.Read more

Measures for the Promotion of Electric Vehicles

December 2018 to March 2019
The successful electrification of passenger road transport can play an important role for effectively combatting anthropogenic climate change and for achieving the objective of limiting the global average temperature increase to 1.5°C degrees above pre-industrial levels. The large-scale introduction of electric powered passenger cars has hence been promoted in a variety of countries around the world. The aim of this project is the analysis of existing policies and measures that have a direct or indirect impact on the increased uptake of electric vehicles (EVs), particularly battery electric and fuel cell electric vehicles, and on the phasing out of cars with internal combustion engines (ICE).Read more

Car Sharing in Germany

A Case Study on the Circular Economy
This case-study paper examines future scenarios for car sharing in Germany, analysing drivers and impacts. Enabled by disruptive technological changes, car sharing is an example of a "product as a service" and becoming an increasingly viable alternative to the private ownership of cars. By intensifying the use of vehicles, car sharing has the potential to provide mobility using fewer physical and energy resources. Read more

Policies for Sustainable Shipping in the Baltic Sea – SHEBA Policy Brief

A ranking of 20 policy options
Shipping is vital for trade in the global economy and in particular for countries whose economies are closely tied to trading, like those surrounding the Baltic Sea. However, compared to other sectors, shipping is also a significant driver of environmental pressures, such as the spread of alien species or other physical influences. Underwater noise and emissions of nitrogen oxide and fine dust are additional significant pressures from shipping compared to other land and sea-based activities. Shipping is also a source of greenhouse gases (GHG). Ecologic Institute's policy brief presents an assessment of 20 policies with the potential to tackle the pressures from shipping. The policy brief is available for download.Read more
