Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This report was triggered by discussions between
members of the European Academies’ Science Advisory
Council’s (EASAC’s) energy steering panel on the
challenges faced by the European Union (EU) in the
light of the Paris Agreement; in particular, the challenge
of reducing emissions from the transport sector, which
relies almost totally on fossil fuels. It was also stimulated
by the EU energy and climate package, which was
released in November 2016, entitled ‘Clean Energy
for all Europeans‘, and the three packages of the EU
initiative ‘Europe on the Move‘.
