Clean fuels and vehicles

Travel options and infrastructures for  cleaner vehicles and fleets 

In seeking to encourage cleaner and better transport, most CIVITAS cities explore innovative solutions for introducing and pushing the use of clean vehicles and alternative fuels in their integrated strategies.

This thematic group looks at solutions that stimulate the spread of clean and energy-efficient vehicles, including private and public fleets.

Electric mobility, fuelling infrastructures, hybrid vehicles, use of biodiesel, biogas and compressed natural gas (CNG) are key topic areas for the TG.

More than focusing only on technological advancements and new solutions on the market, the group explore in particular procurement and tendering schemes and opportunities to source biofuels locally.

Cities play a key-role in the deployment of electric vehicles. Ideally the deployment is part of a structured and effective strategy that blends in with the city’s Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan.
