Aside from the numerous activities supporting the switch to low-emission fuels and associated technologies on the federal level, there are multiple measures with which the federal states in Germany drive the energy transition forward. An up-to-date state atlas compiles these and offers governments, energy agencies and other organisations suggestions for their own activities.
The atlas is based on the report published at the end of 2019 on the implementation of the National Strategy Framework in Germany for compliance with Directive 2014/94/EU (AFID report). On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, NOW GmbH conducted a survey of measures in the federal states. The atlas thus provides a very broad overview.
The measures include procurement guidelines within state financing law for municipalities, funding programmes for the procurement of vehicles and infrastructure, and research funding. Apart from widespread programmes like bus procurement, more specific measures such as equipping vocational schools for teaching in the area of electric mobility can be found. The measures relate to road and rail transport as well as shipping. Aside from electric mobility, measures to support hydrogen, natural gas as well as biogenic and synthetic fuels are included.
