Decarbonising China’s Transport Sector – Workshop on Developing Road Transport Carbon Emission Models for Chinese Cities

To support Chinese cities by engaging experts and decisionmakers at municipal and provincial levels in introducing best practices from Europe and China in city-level transport emissions model development and applications, a workshop on Decarbonising China’s Transport Sector was held online on 15th August, 2022. This workshop explored the current challenges and opportunities for the establishment of transport emission models and facilitating peer-to-peer learning among Chinese cities/provinces, with a focus on introducing modelling methodologies for urban transport emissions in Chinese cities.

Climate Goals and Recommendations for Action in China’s Transport Sector

The transport sector is a key sector with regards to fossil fuel consumption, and its energy consumption and GHG emissions have been widely concerning. In recent years, China’s transport sector has made great efforts in promoting energy conservation and emission reduction, and has achieved significant results. However, there are still many problems and challenges existing in the field of transport which need to be managed, in order to accelerate the processes of energy saving and carbon reduction, and promote the realization of carbon dioxide peaking and carbon neutrality.

Climate Goals and Recommendations for Action in China’s Transport Sector [EN]

This research systematically analyzes the status quo of China’s transport development in terms of transport volume, equipment and infrastructure development, and then assesses the status quo of transport-related carbon emissions based on energy consumption. This research further summarizes major climate targets, as well as policies and measures in China’s transport sector, and identifies major challenges […]

Developments and Perspectives for Mobility Stations in the Urban Space [DE]

Shared bikes, kick-scooters, e-mopeds and other ride sharing options have long become integrated in urban mobility landscapes. Urban mobility behaviour increasingly reflects the trend of „using instead of owning“, following which individual mobility needs are considered in the context of a just and environmentally friendly transport planning. In numerous German cities, so-called „mobility stations“ describe […]
