Conference: Regional Power for Clean Transport 30 Oct - 31 Oct, 2013
Regions are an important contributor in developing European energy and transport policy. The new EU policy on clean power for transport will be the key discussion point, emphasising on biogas, electromobility and hydrogen. Members of the European Parliament, EU officials, and representatives from national level, counties and municipalities meet actors from industry and R&D at the conference Regional Power for Clean Transport on 30-31 October 2013, in Oslo. The conference is organised by Akershus County Council and Hydrogen, fuel cells and Electro-mobility in European Regions, HyER. The county of Akershus is the area surrounding Norway’s capital, Oslo. Together, the Oslo and Akershus region is a European frontrunner in clean transport with more than 5,000 e-cars as well as fuel cell cars, biogas and fuel cell buses and a fuel cell strategy. Since last May, 5 hydrogen fuel cell buses have been operating in Oslo within the framework of the EU co-funded Clean Hydrogen In European Cities (CHIC) project. The project is co-financed by the EU’s Fuel Cell Hydrogen Joint Undertaking programme. Join us on the road towards a fossil-free transport sector!
