Webinar: Renewable Transportation: Shipping and Aviation (recordings available)
In collaboration with the International Windship Association and the International Association for Sustainable Aviation
Wednesday, 9 September 2020, 12:00-14:30 h Central European Summer Time.
While the power sector in many countries is progressing well towards a full renewable energy supply and land based transportation is taking major steps away from fossil, fuels, two important areas have hardly been tackled: Aviation and Shipping.
In order to achieve the goal of a climate neutral world and to shift human economic activities completely towards renewable energy, it is imperative that these two sectors be converted too. Although today almost all vessels and planes are fueled with fossil fuel, very promising concepts are available with the potential of completely switching away from such fuels.
This webinar will present the state of the art in aviation and shipping and will discuss actual and potential solutions. A special focus will be on how wind and other renewable sources can support these two difficult-to-abate transportation sectors in managing this transformation.
