Transport represents a major proportion of global energy use. While uptake of electric vehicles is doubling year on year, much more is needed if we are to transition away from fossil fuels and hit emissions targets. Electrification requires the expansion of charging infrastructure, improved battery and charging technology, and effective strategies from fleet operators for upgrading their existing fleets. Electrification can only go so far however, and harder to abate sectors such as aviation, rail, shipping, and long distance road transport will require alternative fuels such as hydrogen and biomethane.
This track will cover all areas of transport, from public and home charging infrastructure to fleet managers.
