(PresseBox) - Negotiations on the global climate agreement in Katowice in December 2018 (COP24) mark a further milestone on the path towards the ambitious goals of limiting global warming and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. How can the transport sector, drawing on the full range of affordable technological developments, contribute to attaining climate change mitigation objectives? well as on differentiating between various fuel options.

The extensive programme offers a variety of topics with relevance for increasing climate protection in individual and heavy goods traffic, as well as in the fields of aviation and shipping.

On the opening day, the focus will be on mobility, set between the conflicting priorities of climate protection, economic efficiency and user acceptance. In the plenary session, representatives from the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, the European Parliament, the petroleum and automotive industries and the scientific community will discuss future prospects for the transport sector.

The panel discussion will pick up on statements made by industry, politics, European agriculture and the environmental organisation WWF. Sonja van Renssen, Energy Post editor, will chair a discussion between Pekka Pesonen (COPA-COGECA), Dr. Klaus Bonhoff (National Organisation for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology), Dr. Ruprecht Brandis (BP Europe SE), Jenny Walther-Thoss (WWF Germany) and Stefan Schreiber (Cargill Holding Germany) on the future of renewable mobility in the light of various drive and fuel options. The afternoon forum will analyse future prospects for synthetic fuels.

On the second day of the conference, 11 forums will examine a broad spectrum of topics from all areas of renewable energy in the mobility sector: German and international experts will present news on technical developments, research, certification, market analysis and trade flows, as well as entering into discussions with conference participants. These forums, like the exhibitor forum with exhibition stands, will also offer scope for professional exchanges and networking. Again more than 500 delegates from more than 25 countries are expected.
