As economic activity resumes in the post-pandemic world, CO2 emissions are likely to bounce back, especially from the transportation sector. Demand for passenger air travel, as well as overall freight demand globally by sea, air and road picks up again creating a very significant challenge in the decarbonisation effort. The aviation, shipping and road transportation sectors will need to play their part in the energy transition and explore pathways of reducing their environmental footprint. In this session, we will explore:

  • What are the energy transition challenges that the aviation, shipping and road transportation sectors face?
  • Are there any immediately available solutions to start the journey of decarbonizing those sectors?
  • What is the role of low and zero-carbon fuels in air and maritime transport?
  • Can the battery or hydrogen technology come to the rescue? What is the uptake of these technologies so far and what does the future hold?
  • Alongside alternative fuels, what other steps and efficiencies (including synergies between them) can these sectors of transport pursue?
