International Conference on Renewable Mobility Discusses the “Green Deal” and Defossilisation of the Transport Sector.
Discussions and presentations at the 17th International Conference on Renewable Mobility focus on the impact of the German government’s climate protection package and the new European Commission’s “Green Deal”. The European Commission intends to ramp up its climate protection efforts through the “Green Deal”, which is also designed to ensure sustainable and intelligent mobility. Renewed discussions on the transport sector are planned, in particular on CO2 fleet limits for the automotive industry and the recast Renewable Energy Directive (RED II). The conference organisers believe that renewable fuels play a crucial part in implementation of the “Green Deal” and in achieving a defossilised transport sector, as the combustion engine will continue to play an important role in years to come.
Numerous measures are required to cut greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector. Alongside more widespread introduction of electric mobility, it will also be vital to increase use of renewable liquid and gas energy sources, such as electricity-based fuels and certified sustainable biofuels. As well as cutting emissions, the associated drive mix will help maintain key European value chains in the automotive industry. At the same time, a mobility strategy that is open to new technologies ensures the transport sector will be able to adapt to future challenges.
