On 20 April 2022 at 14:25 CEST, NERA Associate Director Dominik Huebler will speak at the Track Access Charges Summit 2022 in Rotterdam. Mr. Huebler will participate in an interview titled “Interview: Lessons Learnt from Rail Access Charge (TAC) Waivers.” Mr. Huebler will discuss the following questions:

  • Will the pandemic and the Green Deal lead to a permanent change in the relative ability of rail vs. road and freight vs. passengers to bear charges?
  • What are the advantages and drawbacks of charging structures?
  • What can and should TACs contribute to incentivizing “green” behavior both within the rail sector and in supporting rail vs. other less clean modes of transport?

Further points of discussion:

  • Should we try to maintain COVID-19 waivers as much as possible by aiming for direct cost pricing going forward?
  • How do we deal with the return of congestion?
  • Can we learn from other sectors (airports, in particular) in mitigating the impact of future adverse events?
