Among them:

  • The Clean Power for Transport (CPT) Package. An initiative aimed at ensuring the build-up of infrastructure for electricity, hydrogen and natural gas, a key part of the overall decarbonisation efforts of the Common Transport Policy.
  • EU 2020 Industrial Policy and the potential for the development of eco-industries. 
  • The European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) as major initiative for swift and large scale deployment of technologies with a low-carbon footprint in the European energy system.
