The Mobility and Fuels Strategy of the German Government is a cornerstone to shaping the “Energiewende” in the transportation sector and continues to be updated as a “learning strategy” with engagement from key actors.
IFOK developed and implemented a robust expert dialogue to develop the Mobility and Fuels Strategy of the German government with representatives from the private sector, academia, civil society and the public sector from 2011 to 2013. The goal was to shape a strategy that will meet Germany’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets in the transportation sector and address a host of questions on how to make transportation more climate and environmentally friendly.
This dialogue resulted in clear recommendations for action and formed the basis of the Mobility and Fuels Strategy. The strategy was passed by the German Federal Cabinet in June 2013. Due to its innovative approach, the dialogue process was named a “Lighthouse Project“ of the German National Sustainability Strategy by the Federal Government‘s State Secretary Committee for Sustainable Development.
The “learning strategy” phase of the Mobility and Fuels Strategy began after its adoption in the German Federal Cabinet. As a learning strategy, key actors continue to be engaged not only in implementation of the Mobility and Fuels Strategy, but also in further revisions of the strategy to consider emerging technologies, new insights, more ambitious goals, and other societal and technological changes.
To support the Mobility and Fuels Strategy as a learning strategy, IFOK continues to coordinate engagement of experts on key issues and in formats such as expert workshops and conferences. Accompanying this, IFOK also manages all communications and public relations work on the Mobility and Fuels Strategy.
