‘Germany pours cold water on EU’s clean energy ambitions’
The German minister of Energy and Economic Affairs, Peter Altmaier, said that ‘voters across Europe have lost faith in politics partly because of “unachievable targets” on renewable energy’. Alongside these comments, made during the Energy Council in Luxembourg (on the 11th of June), he rejected calls from a group of other EU countries to raise the share of renewable energy to 33-35% of the bloc’s energy mix by 2030.

‘Toekomst klimaatplan onzeker door ruzie tussen milieuorganisaties en industrie’
Dutch Environmental organisations and the industry have collided with each other on the matter of Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage (CCUS). In the final phase of the negotiations on the National Climate Agreement, parties do not seem to succeed in finding consensus on a crucial component: the collection and storage of the greenhouse gas CO2. The environmental organisations are afraid that CCUS will allow the industry to not fully focus on achieving a fully renewable energy source as driver for their production, whereas the industry argues that it is the only viable way for the industry to make their energy supply more durable and sustainable in the short term.

‘Low-carbon fuels crucial to achieving EU clean mobility goals, new study shows’
The consultancy firm Ricardo Energy & Environment has published a study “Europe’s Clean Mobility Outlook: Scenarios for the EU light-duty vehicle fleet, associated energy needs and emissions, 2020-2050”, which shows that Europe’s aim at decarbonizing road transport is not manageable with just the use of electric vehicles. Rather a variety of solutions needs to be included of which the use of -low-carbon fuels such as renewable ethanol is of significant importance .

'Sustainability is just a story'
The Dutch government helps Brazil with the construction of ports, roads and railways straight through the Amazon. Good for our business, is the idea. But the projects lead to deforestation, land grabbing and murder. Especially as a result of the cultivation of soya beans. And the Dutch government knows that.

‘Shell Aviation, SkyNRG Collaborate on sustainable aviation fuel’
Shell Aviation and SkyNRG announced May 30 a long-term strategic collaboration to promote and develop the use of sustainable fuel in aviation supply chains.

‘Subsidy to a series of hydrogen projects for sustainable transport’
The government will subsidize the construction of a series of gas stations for hydrogen to make the transport sector more sustainable. Experiments with electric transport for cargo are also encouraged. This is evident from the list of approved projects which was published on Thursday (31st May) in the context of the Demonstration Regulation on Climate Technologies and Innovations in Transport (DKTI Transport).

‘I wished I could be optimistic’ – an interview with Eelco Hoekstra, chairman of the board of Vopak.
