What role can energy play in decarbonizing the transport system?

Monday, April 3rd: 13:45 - 14:45 - T Building

HOST: SLOCAT, Michelin Bibendum

The transport sector has acknowledged the importance of a low carbon energy supply, but is yet to act in concert with the energy sector to map out the steps to be taken to ensure the timely available supply of low-carbon energy for the sector. Although transport is one of the largest end-users of energy, the energy sector is only recently beginning partner with the transport sector to draft joint approaches. There is a growing urgency to develop joint pathways for the production of renewable sources of energy and their deployment in transport. This session will bring together key stakeholders from both sectors to discuss a way forward.
