Peters called for the developed world to give technological and financial support to underdeveloped countries so that no country is left behind in reducing gas emissions from transportation. It is reported that between 22 and 26% of global greenhouse gas emissions are from transport.
The introduction of hydrogen fuelled, plug-in and battery powered vehicles will go a long way in reducing carbon emissions.
The Minister also highlighted how the Department of Science and Technology has produced the ‘Jewel’, an electric vehicle which – with the necessary financing – could be taken from research and development to commercialisation.
The hydrofuel cells and biofuels for both jet and vehicle fuel studies form part of South Africa’s commitment to zero emissions initiatives.
