European Commission has proposed the revised version of CO2 regulation for heavy-duty vehicles in February (which requires all new city buses to be zero emission starting in 2030). And this goes along with other well known measures: the Clean Vehicles Directive is in place since 2021, with quotas for zero emission buses in public tenders. In the truck field, the definition of Euro VII standard is underway and poses specific challenges to the sector (Iveco Group CEO Gerrit Marx just stated such standard is a “stupid idea”…).

If you are willing to get a clear picture of the topic, including insights and outlooks from relevant stakeholders (starting with key organizations such as UITP, ACEA, IRU, C40, Transport & Environment), on 17th April we broadcasted first event of the Sustainable Bus Tour 2023, in this occasion in partnership with our fellow media Sustainable Truck & Van. Title? “EU policy framework & transition to zero emission commercial vehicles“. Find here the REPLAY 👇🏻

A new format: the VideoSpotlight

But don’t expect a webinar this time: our goal is to give a clear picture of the subject in an agile video reporting with involvement of key stakeholders. The VideoSpotlight format implies a deal: you’ll get an articuluate explanation of the subject in less than one hour. From the live voices of the most relevant organizations and players, able to identify challenges, opportunities, insights.

eu commercial vehicles

UITP, ACEA, IRU, Keolis, C40, Safra…

During the broadcasting we’ll be taking a stock of the regulatory framework and of the technological achievements, trying to highlight the challenges operators and OEMs are dealing with, involving organizations, industry players, leading carriers. Keolis Group, Quantron and Safra will also be represented in the panel.

From the technological point of view, is the zero emission commercial vehicles market growing at the expected pace? Is still mileage the main concern and the main topic? Where are we standing concerning infrastructure’s deployment? What about gas-drives? Is retrofit going to really play a role in the transition of public transport? These are just a few of the questions that will be answered during the 17th April’s VideoSpotlight.
