Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning takes part in Zero-Emission Mobility Corridor in Slovenia project

Portorož, 4 June 2019 – A representative of the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning, Peter Gašperšič, attended an energy conference held in Portorož by the Mitsubishi Hitachi and ECUBES companies. The Slovenian project Zero-Emission Mobility Corridor in Slovenia was presented as part of the conference. The ministry considers the project to be a great opportunity to accelerate the transition to renewable energies and clean mobility with the introduction of hydrogen technologies on the path to achieving Slovenia's ambitious climate goals, reducing CO2 emissions and increasing the use of renewable energy sources. Zero-carbon mobility, a sustainable and accessible energy supply, clean air and decarbonisation of the economy are strategic priorities of the ministry and the Slovenian government.

Gašperšič stated that “In the Zero-Emission Mobility Corridor in Slovenia project, we see the potential for launching several parallel projects as part of the circular economy in terms of the supply of clean and accessible energy needed to realise this model. Our ministry works closely with the Ministry of Defence, and we are pleased that we are creating synergies in our actions and that the proposed solution also has strong support at the European level and from the European Defence Agency.”

 

In the Zero-Emission Mobility Corridor in Slovenia project, the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning sees an opportunity to speed up the achievement of Slovenia’s climate goals and implementation of its energy strategy.
