Deep decarbonization of our energy system requires us to look at carbon intensive sectors. In Switzerland, mobility accounts for about 40% of carbon dioxide emissions (not counting international air travel). Therefore, it is essential to decarbonize - or better: defossilize - the mobility sector by 'electrifying' it, under the premise that the electricity used is based on renewable sources.
In this year's Swiss Electrochemistry Symposium, which will again be held as a webinar, we focus on electrification of the transport sector. The energy vectors considered are batteries, hydrogen / fuel cells and carbon based energy carriers (power-to-X routes).
Seven distinguished speakers will cover the diverse aspects of transport electrification from fundamental science to engineering topics and techno-economical considerations.
