Over the last 150 years of powered mobility, the question of which energy will move us tomorrow has never been more open than now. The key driver for CO2 neutral mobility has opened a broad variety of options, including electricity, hydrogen, and synthetic fuels. In assessing these options, we need to consider several factors, including regional energy production (such as nuclear, solar, wind, and fossil fuel), the profile of mobility (for example, owned versus shared mobility, urban versus rural environment), as well as sustainability, and the ethical profiles of the supply chain and production network.
This Output Paper brings together a few perspectives on the topic, including insight from the speakers and invited experts at the event, which together create an overall picture of “Smart Energy.” The case studies and insight show both the complexity of the matter and the unique opportunities emerging for technology and business in this exciting and defining period for the mobility of tomorrow.
