About Energy for transport and mobility


The transport and mobility sector is responsible for about 1/3 of Europe's energy consumption and about 1/4 of overall greenhouse gas emissions. As such, this thematic area plays a significant role in the transition of the energy system of the EU. The need for a transition to an energy efficient and clean transport and mobility sector is also recognised in latest communications of the EU commission, for example in the winter package for accelerating clean energy innovation in the mobility-package for example.

Points of interest for InnoEnergy are currently: e-mobility, hydrogen, alternative synthetic fuels, smart integration of the energy sectors power and transport. We see opportunities in all transport modes and further innovation opportunities arise from, for example: new mobility business models, last mile solutions, multi-modality and sharing economy.
