Climate-neutral alternative fuels
As of: September 2020
Objective and activities
Brazil has huge potential in terms of renewable energies – and a rapidly increasing demand for fuel. The project has developed an international reference model for the production and application of climate-neutral fuels, which are produced using wind and solar energy and used in aviation and other transport segments – the electric mobility segment, however, is not included. Fuels are produced and used in a pilot project to prove their feasibility and economic efficiency. The experience gained is systematised and introduced into the international debate on transport sector decarbonisation. /
