Plenární zasedání Životní prostředí10-12-2013 - 13:40
Schválení tzv. "backloadingu" emisních povolenek by mělo podnítit investice do nízkouhlíkových inovací  

Parlament v úterý schválil plány na zmrazení aukcí části nadbytečných povolenek na emise CO2, jejichž cílem je podpořit investice podniků do nízkouhlíkových inovací. Opatření, která Parlament v červenci pozměnil a nastavil tak přísnější podmínky pro zmrazení, mají obnovit motivační účinek systému obchodování s emisemi (ETS).

Plans to freeze the auctioning of some CO2 permits, so as to raise their price and thus encourage firms to invest in low-carbon innovation, will be put to a final vote on Tuesday, after EU ministers endorsed Parliament’s July 2013 proposal setting stricter conditions for the freeze. The aim is to restore the incentive effect of the Emissions Trading System, which is designed to cut greenhouse gas emissions and tackle climate change.

Alternativní paliva: kde si můžete dobít “plnou”?

Další tiskové zprávy Životní prostředí27-11-2013 - 18:52
 

Větší podíl elektrických aut na silnicích by pomohl snížit emise CO2 i znečištění ovzduší ve městech. Jenže elektromobily nejdou na prodej, protože pro ně není dostatečná síť dobíjecích stanic. A do jejich budování se nikdo nehrne, protože je málo elektromobilů. Parlament v současné době zvažuje nová pravidla, která by po členských zemích požadovala vybudování určitého minimálního počtu dobíjecích stanic do roku 2020. Naše mapa vám prozradí, kde lze alternativní paliva čerpat v současnosti. (Přečtěte si více: Alternativní paliva: kde si můžete dobít “plnou”?)
