The funds of the mobility plan in which the Ministry of Transport participates represent an investment of more than 13,000 million of euros. The ministry estimates that its mobility plans will generate a contribution to GDP of 20,000 million euros and create up to 280,000 new jobs. Biogas and hydrogen will play an indisputable role in this transformation process of all modes of transport.
Led by a representative of the EC, we will review the policies implemented in Europe on sustainable mobility and their vision of the present and future of biogas and hydrogen in transport, all within the framework of the European Green Deal.
The CEOs of leading companies in the transport and energy sector share their views on the penetration prospects of carbon neutral fuels and the energy management necessary to accelerate the process towards green transport.
In 2021, Spain and Portugal have started supplying biogas at their service stations. In this table we will analyze the experiences of transporters and station operators, and the impact of the biogas roadmap on the development of this fuel in the Iberian Peninsula
Reaching the CO2 emission reduction targets implies the progressive substitution of fossil fuels in all modes of transport, either by converting the engines or renewing the fleet. At this table, the leaders of the transport, air, maritime, rail and road sectors will make an assessment of what the deployment of BioGNV and Hydrogen represents in terms of technical viability and cost to face this challenge.
Transport activity has expanded considerably in recent years with the globalization of the trade, together with the need to move towards an increasingly sustainable fleet. As freight and passenger flows accelerate, supply chain agents have had to review their supply strategies. In this context, multimodal transport is a sensible solution to meet the needs of consumers and solve the problem of the net saturation, but it must be accompanied by multi-energy HUBS that act as qualifiers for the introduction of LNG, bioLNG or Hydrogen in the mobilities that interact in them: maritime transport, road and rail, seeking joint solutions that reduce the specific costs of each mobility.
Leaders in road transport and European shipping companies have begun to base their decarbonisation strategy on BioGNV. At this table we will have first hand experiencies, their perspectives, the levers and the barriers they are encountering in this decarbonization process.
There is an unanimous agreement: the fuel cell is a ‘key technology’ for achieving ‘CO2 emission – free high-tonnage transport’ in the future. These trucks are getting closer to the roads every day, but what are the technological challenges that must be overcome? How will the refueling net be like? When will the serial productions begin? At this table we will try to answer these questions from the main manufacturers in the sector.
In the last year we have witnessed an increase in the cost of carbon dioxide emission rights never seen since the creation of this market 16 years ago and specialists consider that we haven´t reached the top yet. The tonnes of CO2 not emitted will be the new driver to enable production and use projects in the transport of biogas and renewable hydrogen. At this table we will analyze the impact of the emissions market on new projects and the changes required in the regulatory framework to make it a reality.
Logistics is one of the great challenges facing the penetration of hydrogen in the transport. In this table we will analyze solutions for the supply of hydrogen to the different modes of transport: road, rail or ship
The maritime sector faces the main technological challenge in its history. LNG and the expected natural evolution towards BioGNL have a mature supply infrastructure that has made possible that in 2021 the orders for ships that will use this fuel have exploded. However, no one questions the role that hydrogen and other synthetic fuels may play in this mode of transport. When will they be available? And what technological barriers must be overcome? are some of the questions that we will try to answer in this round table
