- Location: Berlin

Low-emission transport systems and possibilities for effective use of renewable energies in the transport sector

9. German-Japanese Environment and Energy Dialogue Forum

The transportation sector is responsible for a large extent of GHG emissions in Japan as well as in Germany. Without significant changes in drivetrain technologies and innovative concepts for individual, public and freight transport the climate protection goals will not be achieved. But how can the transformation of the transportation be successful? Experts from Toyota, Nissan, Agora Verkehrswende, the German Energy Agency (dena), TEPCO, Siemens, Asahi Kasei and the National Organization for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NOW) discussed solutions, pioneering technologies and model projects at the 9th German-Japanese Environment and Energy Dialogue Forum in front of approximately 160 participants.
