Kevin Anderson says: “We already have demand management, it’s called the cost of public transport, the price of petrol. A small cohort travel as much as they want [because they can afford to],” External link

John Mauro said: "A more compact Auckland with greater reliance on electric-powered public transport will play a critical role in reducing carbon emissions from transport and traffic, which make up 40 per cent of our city's emissions," "This will also reduce the high levels of black carbon pollution in the city centre" External link

John Mauro said: "We all need to work together. We all benefit when our society and people become more resilient, more equitable, more prosperous and healthier," "Taking decisive action won't always be easy – it'll require some tough conversations and difficult decisions" External link

Miguel Arias Canete said: "All sectors must contribute to meet our climate commitments under the Paris Agreement. That's why, for the first time ever, we are proposing EU standards to increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions from new heavy-duty vehicles. These standards represent an opportunity for European industry to consolidate its current leadership position on innovative technologies" External link

Martin Ford said: “Essentially, this doesn’t deliver on the stated transport policy of modal shift to public transport, cutting carbon emissions and all the rest of it. If you test it against those propositions, it’s probably overall perverse and it certainly doesn’t take you further forward. So why not do something else which does deliver on what you say is your transport policy?” External link

Martin Ford said (about Aberdeenshire Council): “From my perspective as a member of Aberdeenshire Council, you can turn that upside down,” “The council wanted a much more enlightened deal than the government wanted. So it was national policy imposing old thinking on a region that knew it needed to break out of that” External link

Charalambos Theopemptou argued: “What needs to be done is to draw up a bill which will penalise the actual pollution caused by the car. We do not have a problem with owners of cars with high emissions paying a hefty registration fee or road tax, but even this should be introduced gradually, giving incentives to people to change their cars,” External link

Drew Shindell said: "I was interested in testing the argument I hear a fair bit -- that people support action to limit climate change. But, since it's mostly occurring in the distant future and it's spread around the world, things that are really at home and in the here-and-now are much higher on the agenda," External link

Miguel Arias Canete said: “With the first-ever EU emission standards for trucks agreed, we are completing the legal framework to reach the European target of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030. The European Parliament and Council have reached an ambitious and balanced agreement. The new targets and incentives will help tackle emissions, as well as bring fuel savings to transport operators and cleaner air for all Europeans. For the EU industry, this is an opportunity to embrace innovation towards zero-emission mobility and further strengthen its global leadership in clean vehicles” External link

Claire Johnson says: “As a new sector, we have had a strong focus on educating policy makers on the technology, its benefits and the opportunity.

Claire Johnson tells (about Toyota Australia): “The decision to develop a National Hydrogen Strategy is a logical and pragmatic way forward for Australia to take advantage of the ever-building transition to clean hydrogen around the world, including hydrogen-powered transport,” External link

gasworld Monday, February 18, 2019 10:03:00 AM CET

Claire Johnson explains: “After extensive engagement with all levels of government throughout 2018, we are starting to gain some positive traction with decision makers and our key messages are resonating well – the main one being that FCEVs and BEVs both have different but complementary characteristics, and have an equally important role to play in reducing transport emissions,” “We are therefore requesting that governments be technology agnostic in their policy setting and support the range of zero emission vehicles available, and then let the market decide its preference based on lifestyle, usage and so forth” External link

gasworld Monday, February 18, 2019 10:03:00 AM CET

Claire Johnson says: “Due to the very nature of hydrogen being the ultimate interconnector of previously disparate sectors, we see that the transport conversation is linked to the gas network conversation which is in turn linked to the export conversation and so forth. These discussions cannot be had in isolation,” “Infrastructure built to serve these opportunities can be leveraged for multiple purposes and that’s why, for instance, the gas injection projects announced by our members Australian Gas Infrastructure Group, ATCO and Jemena present clear opportunities for leveraging and co-locating refuelling infrastructure. This is what we are actively exploring now – how do we optimise existing infrastructure investments for multi-purpose hydrogen use” External link

gasworld Monday, February 18, 2019 10:03:00 AM CET

Claire Johnson says: “Our focus is on getting the standards, funding programmes, and regulations in place so that our members and other industry participants can grow their hydrogen business while minimising risk and instilling confidence in the future of the sector,” “Our sector currently enjoys strong bipartisan support, so we know that whatever the outcome of the upcoming federal election, hydrogen will continue to be a priority area and therefore we expect a very busy year ahead with some significant progress” External link
