Clean and energy-efficient vehicles

Subscribe to RSS - Clean and energy-efficient vehicles

Clean and energy-efficient vehicles, such as hybrid/electric buses and cars, aim to reduce greenhouse and other pollutant emissions, fuel consumption and fossil fuel dependency.

Exhaust gas treatment systems, alternative drive trains and the use of alternative fuels and energy storage systems can improve the environmental record of vehicles. Besides technical interventions, promotional and procurement initiatives can accelerate the uptake of low-emission vehicles.

LOW-CARB’s pilots and innovations for low-carbon mobility in cities

In this webinar, the Interreg LOW-CARB Project will showcase the implementation of its innovative pilots that advance low-carbon mobility and sustainable mobility planning in Central Europe. The unique contexts of Central European regions give it the potential to leapfrog its way into the greener sustainable futures and can lead the rest of Europe by setting a good example. This webinar presents five of LOW-CARB’s pilots in Leipzig (DE), Skawina & Kraków (PL), Koprivnica (HR), and Szeged (HU). They are:
