Season 2 | Episode 1: Decarbonisation of Commercial & Public Transportation
Transportation is responsible for over a quarter of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions, so it’s vital that it transitions from using petrol and diesel towards low-carbon options as quickly as possible if Europe is to stand any chance of hitting its carbon reduction targets.
While plug-ins and hybrid plug-ins are dominating the private car sector at the moment, there are a host of other transportation sectors where the battery may not be the technology of choice, such as public buses, heavy-duty trucks, maritime and aviation.
In efforts to cut their emissions, these sectors are exploring one particularly promising alternative, and that is clean hydrogen.
In this episode, ground-breaking ideas, technologies and projects were presented, giving the audience a clear appreciation of hydrogen’s true potential for decarbonising both commercial and public transport.
