The transition from a society with old car fleer and where diesel vehicles are still preferred to a low-carbon society where more efficient technologies are predominantly used, requires careful planning and policy making based on data rather than on assumptions.
As a response to this raising concern, case study “STUTRA” was commissioned on national level, examining the ways in which different practices affect the greenhouse gas emissions (CO2, CH4, N2O), enable renewal of the car fleet in the country and faster penetration of electric and hybrid vehicles..
What has been done differently?
We didn’t copy-paste somebody else’s model, we created our own – country specific one. Using national data along with available technologies, proposing changes in existing taxes rather than adding new ones and creating CO2 relevant socially responsible proposal for vehicle registration - turned out to be the Cinderella of transport electrification.
Turning transportation biggest problems into biggest opportunities
Smart blending of money and incentives gave stunning results: 35% reduction of Greenhouse gas emissions from the passenger vehicles rather than 56% increase as “the price of doing nothing” and possibility for 40% of the vehicles on the Macedonian roads to be electric vehicles.
Let’s not imagine, let’s make it happen!
