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?

Eco-Mobility 2020 discussed the impacts of different propulsion system solutions and provide in-depth information on latest developments and innovative strategies. Leading representatives from industry, R&D and technology policy reported on activities and strategies for the successful development and market introduction of efficient propulsion concepts and sustainable energy carriers.
