Sustainable Automotive Mobility: targets and challenges

webinar AIEE/IAEE - 12 maggio 2021

Mobility is essential for a modern society and for the economy growth because it plays a fundamental role in connecting people and businesses, but also in achieving sustainable development.
The European Commission’s Smart and Sustainable Mobility Strategy puts in place key milestones for all modes of transport to ensure that the EU transport system stays on track in its development towards a smart and sustainable future.
Transport must decarbonize and improve its sustainability, in line with the 2050 climate neutrality target.
In this context, the automotive and energy industries play a central role, through innovative technologies to transform the mobility system and make it more sustainable, flexible and at the same time improve competitiveness.
In this webinar we will try to explore some aspects of how the automotive and the energy industries are working on creating tomorrow’s sustainable mobility: how to reduce emissions and energy consumption; smart and sustainable mobility strategies; alternative fuels etc.
