Technical assistance project - Preparing the submission of LIFE IP project application FuelVISION

Reference: LIFE15 TAC/NL/000002 | Acronym: TA FuelVISION



Under the Clean Power for Transport EU Directive, all Member States are required to provide sufficient infrastructure for alternative fuels for transport. In the Netherlands, this has led to the development of a vision for a sustainable fuel mix for transport under the National Energy Agreement for Sustainable Growth. This agreement is a public private partnership containing the Dutch sustainable energy goals for 2020 and 2030. The vision for a sustainable fuel mix for transport provides insight into various pathways towards a more sustainable future for the transport sector. Those pathways have been translated into concrete actions for the parties involved and consequently into the Action Agenda Sustainable Fuels, which aims to achieve the goals set for 2030.


The vision for a sustainable fuel mix for transport describes the pathways to a future by 2030 in which every passenger vehicle that enters an urban area has zero emissions or will be able to switch to a zero emission transmission. If zero emission is not feasible, other sustainable solutions will be realised: LNG for transport and shipping, biofuels for aviation and energy-efficiency will contribute to the ambitious goal of 60% less emission of CO2 in the mobility sector. The coordination within a pathway will be organised in platforms, where public and private parties can find each other and work together towards the 2030 target. Additionally, there will be a need for overall coordination between the different tracks and their platforms, in order to reach the full potential of the vision for a sustainable fuel mix for transport by 2030.

The proposed LIFE Integrated Project Fuel VISION aims to take up the coordination of activities regarding the development paths, facilitating parties (private and public) in the market segments relevant to the Action Agenda Sustainable Fuels. The successful implementation of the Action Agenda depends on proper coordination between the various levels involved, with simultaneous policy deployment and joint investment.

Expected results The technical assistance to the FuelVISION project aims to prepare an Integrated Project on Climate Change that is eligible for funding. The expected results are:

  • Development of a concept note;
  • Coordination with relevant stakeholders, such as regional authorities and other important public and the private parties, to submit their plans for implementation activities to be considered for inclusion in the LIFE Integrated Project; and
  • Development of an Integrated Project’s proposal.
