This Webinar is organized as virtual side event in the frame of the 5 High Level Ministerial Conference on the Transport Health Environment Pan European Programme THE PEP „Building forward better by transforming to new clean, safe, healthy and inclusive mobility and transport“ 17-18 May 2021 Vienna online
It will be organised by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology, which also leads the THE PEP Partnership on Eco-Driving. Within the webinar, the new THE PEP Guidelines for National EcoDriving Initiatives will be presented. The webinar will provide insights on all aspects of Eco-driving.
What it is about
Eco-driving is a soft but very effective climate protection measure – which does not require expensive investment in infrastructure or new vehicle technologies.Eco-drivers can easily reach average fuel reductions of 5–10% for trucks and buses, and up to 10–20% for cars. Eco-driving not only saves fuel costs but also improves road safety and the quality of the local and global environment. For e-vehicles, eco-driving significantly increases the achievable range.
Successful and long-running Eco-driving initiatives from Austria, Germany, Switzerland and UK will present flashlights and best-practises on how to change driving behaviour for private and professional (car, bus and truck) drivers in the long term.
A special focus will be eco-driving with e-vehicles and integrating eco-driving into driving education and examination (including international examples of amending procedures with regard to the EU-regulation that restricts drivers to automatic vehicles if they pass their driving tests in electric vehicles).
