A sustainable transport system requires new solutions for propulsion systems and vehicle concepts. The research within this profile area targets solutions for a highly energy efficient transport system, that uses renewable energy sources, have no net emissions of greenhouse gases and no other harmful emissions to the environment.
Passenger and freight transportation contributes globally to about one fifth of the energy use and of the energy related carbon dioxide emissions. Many projections indicate that energy use and carbon dioxide emissions from transport could rise sharply in the future. To address this challenge the Swedish Government has the ambition of a vehicle fleet for road-based transport independent of fossil fuels already in 2030. The research within the Sustainable Vehicle Technologies profile should contribute to sustainable and energy efficient vehicle design and operation. Our vision is a highly energy efficient transport system, that uses renewable energy sources, have no net emissions of greenhouse gases and no other harmful emissions to the environment.
The profile area Sustainable Vehicle Technologies is shared between two of Chalmers Areas of Advance; Energy and Transport.
