Electro-Mobility & Alternative Fuels

Electro-mobility is an important key to decarbonize transport. In particular, battery electric propulsion offers the potential to effectively mitigate emissions in road transport. Nevertheless, to decarbonize maritime shipping, inland waterway transport and aviation, different approaches are needed. Green hydrogen from renewable energy sources, power fuels (e.g. Power-to-Liquid (PtL)) and innovative solutions such as catenary truck systems are viable options to effectively mitigate carbon emissions and make transport more sustainable.

Transport and Climate Change Week 2022: Insights & Experience from China Shared at Global Sustainable Transport Conference

The 5th Transport and Climate Change Week (TCCW) took place between 9th and 13th May, 2022. It is an international conference focused on knowledge-sharing and peer-to-peer exchange on the challenges and best practices for achieving sustainability goals and decarbonisation in the transport sector. Around 1,500 experts and decision-makers from around the world joined the week-long conference through its online platform, where they could follow and engage with the events, as well as connect in online networking spaces.

E-Bus Development in China: From Fleet Electrification to Refined Management

The “Study on Technical System of the Life Cycle of Battery Electric Buses” follows the life cycle stations of battery electric buses, from its procurement, charging, operation, maintenance, to the decommissioning of batteries. It provides a technical guide for stakeholders in each of the procedures to achieve safety, efficiency, and sustainability. As part of the study, eight case cities covering various geographic area and social-economic level were identified: Zhengzhou, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Jinan, Guangzhou, Shenyang, Yinchuan, and Xi’an. Through surveys and interviews, the study collected first-hand data on the challenges, solutions, and best practices in these cities. Based on literature review, comparative analyses, field study, and expert consultations, the study then provides recommendations for all relevant stakeholders.
