EU MONITOR: Recharging the Czech EU Presidency

Czechia will enter its second round of the EU Presidency on the 1st of July. Despite the ongoing major shift toward e-mobility across the EU, no strong commitments are coming from the Czech government. The widely accepted milestone of 2035 for phasing-out the sales of new non-zero-emission cars is still perceived by many local policy-makers as unrealistic. Michal Hrubý, a research fellow at the Institute for European Policy, writes in his EU Monitor.

EU MONITOR: Recharging the Czech EU Presidency

Česko vstoupí 1. července do druhého kola předsednictví EU. Navzdory probíhajícímu významnému posunu směrem k e-mobilitě v celé EU nepřicházejí ze strany české vlády žádné silné závazky. Všeobecně přijímaný milník pro postupné ukončení prodeje nových automobilů s nenulovými emisemi do roku 2035 je mnoha místními politiky stále vnímán jako nereálný. Píše Michal Hrubý, výzkumný pracovník Insititutu pro evropskou politiku EUROPEUM ve svém EU Monitoru.

Deník N: The Green Deal is more important than ever, says the Decarbonising Automotive Transport conference

Our researcher Michal Hrubý attended the conference on Decarbonisation of Automotive Transport where he took part in the debate. We are on the threshold of a decision about the future of Czech car transport. Demand for electromobility is growing exponentially globally, as is the development of battery technology. In the future, these could become value-added products that will kick-start our economy and return the Czech Republic to a leading position in the investment environment. According to representatives of the European Parliament, the state administration, the automotive industry and independent experts on electromobility, it is now important for the Czech Republic to leave the scepticism of change behind and start educating and preparing for the decarbonisation of automotive transport. Not only for the environmental impact, but especially for the future competitiveness of the sector. This was stated in a debate at the Decarbonisation of Automotive Transport conference organised by EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy on Tuesday 1 March.
