Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
First, thank you for the constructive comment!

Ok, I see your point. The European Union tends to give economical roles to member states, so different power sources will be needed in different states. At the same time, all the states have civil and commercial vehicles, which heavily rely on fossil fuels. So, yes, specific decisions for alternative fuels must be taken by member states, but since the automotive sector is so big and using mostly fossil fuels, a decision for alternative fuels on a EU level should be taken as well  - it's a global problem, surpassing the boundaries of the EU.

An extreme viewpoint of your comment would be "every man for himself", which kind of a misses the whole point of the European Union. But again, you are right that each state should think about specific alternative power sources.

Be careful! Is it classified?
