ERTRAC Mapping of technology options for Sustainable Energies and Powertrains for Road Transport

Thursday, March 9th, 2023

ERTRAC, the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council, has published a Mapping of technology options for Sustainable Energies and Powertrains for Road Transport.

The mapping provides the perspective of the road research community to address the environmental and energy challenges of road transport. It provides research recommendations for all technology options and is structured along the fields of energy carriers, powertrain options, and supporting infrastructures.

This document was prepared by the Energy & Environment Working Group, gathering for two years input and expertise from the diversity of research stakeholders present in ERTRAC.
