New study compares potential of different decarbonisation options in road transport

While electric vehicles are becoming cheaper, sustainable fuels could also play an important role in reducing transport emissions in order to meet climate-change goals.

Sustainable fuels have much potential to help decarbonise road transport in the near term, particularly for use by long-range vehicles, according to the study published 9 September in Joule, a leading journal focusing on sustainable energy published by Cell Press.

The research says, in effect, that while policymakers are rightly enthusiastic about the potential for electric vehicles to cut road emissions, we should not lose sight of the limitations of such vehicles for long-haul transport and the corresponding need to also develop sustainable fuels.
