The European Green Deal has set a new trajectory for climate change policy in the European Union. The focus on net zero emissions by 2050 has resulted in a step change in sentiment around climate policy. While an electrified powertrain is now a viable means of decarbonising light duty and short distance travel, climate neutrality poses a much greater challenge for heavy duty and longer distance travel. This insight explores some of the emerging technologies for transport decarbonisation, which could play a role as Europe seeks to implement its net zero carbon policy.
