Traffic Commission proposes examination of the CO2-price : Scheuer climate protection without restriction of mobility want

The Ministry of transport in climate protection, especially on a massive Expansion of E-mobility and public transport. In order for climate targets in transport in 2030 could be achieved without mobility limit, according to information from the German press Agency from an internal presentation to head of Department, Andreas Scheuer (CSU). In addition, should be much stronger than previously used fuels derived from plants, and from electricity - but on the other hand, environmentalists are up in arms.

According to the template to be buying premium for electric cars, as well as tax incentives for "climate extended friendly service" the car. Also Rail, public transport and Bicycle traffic are to be strengthened. Scheuer had thoughts of driving in a government Commission about higher taxes for the car or a General speed limit on motorways rejected.

In an accompanying text by Scheuers official it is, but, a "cross-sectoral" entry in a CO2 pricing is as of a government Commission on transport and the coal Commission proposed to discuss in a "larger context" in the climate Cabinet of the government.

The traffic Commission is proposing in a report with recommendations for action by the government to examine a CO2-price for sectors outside the EU emissions trading system - are the transport, building, agriculture and parts of industry. Objective of a CO2 price is to increase the cost of emissions of the main greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide (CO2). Thus, for example, the Driving of cars with high fuel consumption, which would be more expensive, however, the Commission on compensation for particularly Affected. Scheuer sees a CO2 pricing, however, is skeptical.

The interim report of the government-appointed Commission was approved on Friday by the parent of the "National platform for future mobility", and now goes to Scheuer, as it was called by participants. The experts should, however, consult further.

Scheuer called the interim report a good Basis. Climate protection is a major challenge for the Federal government. "We need to tackle the issue now." He will as a first step, a legislative package for the charging infrastructure push. The goal is, the challenges and obstacles in the area of private load address infrastructure in Parking garages or accelerating the deployment of additional charging points. So far, a major obstacle for a breakthrough of E-cars, that there is no nationwide infrastructure of charging stations. Massively more E-cars are important, so that Germany can meet its climate targets in the transport 2030.

The Commission, with representatives from industry, unions and transport and environmental groups had agreed on proposals for massive investment in public transport and the digitalisation of the traffic. Controversial but a mandatory E-car rate, and a Bonus-Malus-System to bring buyer to, have remained to put on a climate-friendly car. The bottom line is that in the Commission's proposed measures are not sufficient, so that the climate goals are to be achieved.

In the traffic are not dropped, the climate-damaging greenhouse gas emissions since 1990. But you are supposed to be, by 2030, to 40 to 42 percent reduced. So it is in the climate protection plan, and to profess the Union and the SPD in the coalition agreement. By the end of 2019 legal requirements are planned. The traffic must template according to the Ministry of 163 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year, down to a maximum of 98 million tonnes.

The traffic Department sees with its measures, the target for 2030 to be achievable. Already-decided steps enabled a reduction of around 150 million tonnes. With the proposed measures, the Ministry expects a reduction in CO2 emissions by a further 52 to 55 million tonnes.

Particularly controversial, but the Expansion of alternative fuels. Environmental organizations in the sector, biofuel is a bad thing to be compatible with goals of environmental protection and nature conservation, because energy crops for biofuels will compete with the cultivation of food and lead to more monocultures on the fields. Gas or liquid fuel produced from electricity from renewable energies - the so-called E-Fuels have a poor efficiency, their production is not technically Mature yet. Currently, only 13 percent of the power is used to move the car.

Greenpeace-traffic expert, Tobias Austrup said the proposal Scheuers, the climate goals through power-based force to achieve substances that would cause the fuel prices to explode. Even in the year 2030 a litre of artificial fuel will cost around 2 Euro, today, the production hit even with 4,50 euros. "Instead of building the dying of the internal combustion engine, an oxygen tent, it should make the Minister of transport with a E-ratio at last the pace." (dpa)
