In the transport sector, despite a number of political initiatives, the energy demands as well as greenhouse gas emissions are growing at an alarming speed. This holds true especially for road and air transport. However, it is currently impossible to predict which technologies will emerge as the front-runners for Europe. In this context the project aims at compiling a catalogue that offers a sound and concise but not too detailed overview of Alternative Technology Options for Road and Air Transport. Its objective is to contribute to improved transparency and governance of this highly complex and often controversial field. Relevant options are described technically and assessed with regard to their economic perspectives, their contribution to substitute fossil fuels in transport and their potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as other pollutants.
