Mobility and transport are one of the few sectors in which emissions still grow. This is not due to lacking improvements in vehicle technology, transport infrastructure, and the energy systems – but mainly due to a still growing demand for mobility for both people and goods. Existing mobility and transport innovation could help curb demand and emissions but this is far from enough. So – What can we do? Jennifer Dungs, Thematic Field Leader Energy for Transport and Mobility, InnoEnergy, tells us what the solutions might look like.

InnoEnergy is the innovation engine for sustainable energy across Europe supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology. For InnoEnergy, true sustainability also means an industry that’s commercially viable, endlessly innovative, and highly competitive. Jennifer Dungs has spent nearly 20 years in the automotive industry, including BMW and Porsche. She has in-depth knowledge from the industry on topics related to sustainability (CO2 strategy, air quality), alternative powertrain technologies (energy storage, heat management), technologies and services (autonomous driving, sharing, mobility as a service, last mile mobility) and business models for digital products and services for mobility and Smart Cities.
