Minister Cingolani: yes to the refurbishment of the car fleet and to neutrality? technological


The s & igrave; of the European Parliament to the European Commission proposal on stop the sale of endothermic cars starting from 2035 has aroused a lot of controversy in Italy, especially among political forces. And on this very & quot; hot & quot; issue; & egrave; yesterday, the Minister of Ecological Transition Cingolani spoke again during a question time in the Senate. The Minister once again reiterated his position that & egrave; very different from that approved by the European Parliament.


Precisely for this reason, he anticipated that at the next meeting of the Ministers of the Environment and Energy of the European Union that terr & agrave; at the end of June Italy will push on the renewal of the car fleet , on the development of renewable sources, on neutrality; technology and synthetic fuels.

We have 12 million vehicles in Italy from Euro 0 to Euro 4 out of a fleet of approximately 40 million. Encouraging the passage of these vehicles to euro 6 or hybrid has an excellent effect on decarbonisation, even more so; that change from Euro 6 to electric for those who can & ograve; afford it, even taking costs into account.

Therefore, for the Minister, it is; better to focus immediately on the modernization of the fleet, rather than on electricity with a view to decarbonisation. And on the electric, Cingolani reiterated the need of availability of green energy for a wide adoption of battery-powered cars.

Even if they give us all an electric car, we will not be able to recharge the batteries with renewable energy. The supply of clean energy must grow together with the demand for systems that use this energy. This is growing rapidly, but it is; a matter of a few years.

The Minister, anyway , remember that there is an intermediate step concerning the choice of hybrid models that can be enhanced at this stage.

We remind you that there is an intermediate step, the hybrids, which should be enhanced at this time, to lower CO2.

Cingolani, reaffirming the concept of & quot; neutrality & agrave; technology & quot ;, re-emphasized the danger of becoming & quot; slaves & quot; of other markets by focusing only on electricity. A reference to the risk more & ugrave; times ventured to become dependent on China for batteries.

The principle of neutrality technology, and we are pushing a lot on this, suggests that we do not fall into the hands of a market that is not; ours, which does not lead us to be slaves to other markets. We are fighting for synthetic fuels, because & eacute; & egrave; a way to recondition a petrochemical sector, which must find green roads. Biofuels decarbonise between 60 and 90%, at parity; engine and parity; of pomp.

In any case, the Minister is & egrave; said he was satisfied with the achievement of two objectives during the vote in the European Parliament.

In the plenary session of the European Parliament on 8 June, two amendments were voted in favor of the Italian position: maintenance of the derogation for small builders and restoration of the target curve for vans.
