Transport has a major role to play in achieving the EU's objective of climate neutrality by 2050. Whilst electrification and hydrogen technologies are positioned as technologies to deliver this objective, the role of low-carbon liquid fuels is less clear.
However, the major ambition and associated cost of full electrification suggests that low carbon liquid fuels of non-petroleum origin could have a vital role to play in delivering climate neutrality. Particularly in aviation, maritime and heavy duty transport where currently no alternative technologies to liquid fuels exist.
As part of our Innovation Dialogue series, this event aims to investigate low-carbon liquid fuels and their potential role in Europe's future energy mix. Is the contribution of these fuels to climate neutral transport fact or is it greenwashing fiction?
