MOBILITY TRANSITION IN CHINA

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.
