“Fuels of the Future 2022 – Navigator for Sustainable Mobility”

Dear colleagues,

Coping with the coronavirus crisis and significantly increasing momentum as we move towards effective climate change mitigation internationally are the major challenges of our time.

In 2021, the effects of the coronavirus pandemic have continued to determine our professional and private daily routines and have also led to a different format for our 19th International Conference for Renewable Mobility “Fuels of the Future 2022”.

As Covid-19 continues to make planning difficult for conferences and other events, the organisers have decided to run the “Fuels of the Future 2022” conference in a digital format rather than maintaining the original plans for an in-person event on 24th and 25th January 2022 in Berlin. That means the “Fuels of the Future 2022” conference will be held as a 5-day event series in digital format from 24th to 28th January 2022. Each day of the event is made up of three sessions. The advantage for you: the digital format means you have a chance to participate in all the conference sessions. Our conference will, as is customary, be held in two languages (German-English).

We do hope that you can appreciate why we have taken this decision on the format and are confident that at the digital “Fuels of the Future 2022” conference we will once again offer you a very attractive platform with plentiful new information as well as fascinating topics and discussions.

The conference slogan is “Fuels of the Future 2022 – Navigator for Sustainable Mobility”!

This slogan builds a bridge to the enormous challenges for all of society in significantly intensifying future measures and activities to attain ambitious climate change mitigation in all sectors of the economy. Particularly in view of the industry’s overall economic significance at the global, European and national level, defossilisation of the transport sector is a central issue in this context and requires a reliable forward-looking regulatory framework as a basis for planning.

At the European level, the EU is not only setting the framework for climate change mitigation in Europe with the Green Deal, the European Climate Law and the “Fit for 55” package, but is also setting the pace globally for ambitious climate change mitigation in other industrialised countries. The transition to greenhouse gas neutrality will necessitate an unprecedented willingness to invest and, above all, the requisite financial mobilisation in the short term. In view of the time pressure for climate change mitigation, all potentials for saving greenhouse gas emissions in the vehicle fleet must be deployed in a technology-neutral manner to achieve the climate targets for the transport sector stipulated in the EU’s implementation targets – including sustainable biofuels in combination with increasing percentages of synthetic fuels.
