Energy 4 Mobility

The expert talk series on alternative energies

To achieve the European climate targets, CO2 emissions in the transport sector must also be significantly reduced. Alternative fuels can make an important contribution to this. Whether hydrogen, electricity, biofuels or synthetically produced fuels - Messe Frankfurt's new expert talk series "Energy 4 Mobility" will focus on the alternative energies that will power our vehicles in the future.

“The Energy 4 Mobility expert talk series is designed to include all types of technologies by design, covering the full range of climate-neutral fuels, from hydrogen and electricity to biofuels and synthetic fuels. We aim to use our events to facilitate a critical international exchange of views amongst stakeholders.”
