Press conference by Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC, on the launch of the clean fuel strategy, and electric vehicle testing

Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, and Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, Spokesperson of the EC, gave a joint press conference for the launch of the clean fuel strategy. This ambitious package of measures aims to ensure the build-up of alternative fuel stations across Europe with common standards for their design and use. Policy initiatives so far have mostly addressed the actual fuels and vehicles, without considering fuels distribution. Efforts to provide incentives have been un-co-ordinated and insufficient. On this occasion, Siim Kallas tested several electric cars that were showcased on the esplanade of the Berlaymont.
