Eco-Mobility 2020 - VIRTUAL LIVE EVENT

15th International A3PS Conference

Eco-Mobility 2020  - VIRTUAL LIVE EVENT

Sustainable Propulsion – from Research to Road

Efficient Propulsion Concepts and Sustainable Energy Carriers

19 November 2020  

Tech Gate Vienna, Donau-City-Straße 1, 1220 Vienna, Austria

In 2020 an important step on the way to our target of a carbon-neutral mobility was set by the proposed European Climate Law, based on the European Green Deal, Roadmap of the European Commission. The very ambitious CO2 limits for the transport sector for 2030 demand urgent implementation of measures in order to achieve defined climate targets. That means successful research results from the lab must find their way through industrialization to road and to customers.

  • Are the actions from today sufficient to stay on track to achieve 2030 goals?
  • Which different forms of alternative propulsion systems will find broad customer acceptance?
  • What role will Life Cycle Assessment have to evaluate most sustainable mobility solutions?
  • Which legal framework conditions are necessary to accelerate the transformation process in the mobility sector?
  • How will the building up of alternative supply infrastructures progress?
