Integrated Mobility Policy & Solutions
A far-reaching decarbonization of the transport sector represents a major challenge for policymakers, transport infrastructure operators and mobility providers on the road to climate neutrality. Technological as well as systemic innovations are essential for a sustainable design of our mobility system. New and alternative forms of mobility, electrification of road transport, optimized use of transport infrastructure and environmentally friendly modal shift are important elements for an intelligent and intermodal overall transport system of the future.
Numerous technological advances in the field of renewable energies, energy storage and novel synthetic fuels (e.g. based on hydrogen) have been achieved in recent years, but an efficient and sustainable integration into the overall system requires a well-founded consideration based on scientific methods and findings. In this context, digitalization is also fundamentally changing our mobility systems and promoting the design of new ecosystems and innovative and climate-friendly mobility solutions based on digital approaches.
The AIT Center for Energy positions itself as an independent innovation partner for a broad stakeholder community in the transport and mobility sector with a focus on an integrated view of the interfaces between energy and mobility. This sector integration takes place on different levels and requires new approaches in the development of necessary political framework conditions, infrastructure planning, technology integration as well as market dynamics.
