The transport sector consumes about a third of the total energy consumption in Latvia, and this energy is mainly of fossil origin. At the same time, the European Union’s common goal is to achieve a 14% share of renewable energy in transport by 2030. Experience to date has shown that the broader penetration of renewable energy in the transport sector is slow.
The project aims to find the best solution for increasing the share of renewable energy in the transport sector, considering economic, environmental and social aspects.
“Sustainable mobility requires a change of mindset. I truly believe we are ready for this challenge.”
