Experts view on future transportation fuels

Green Car Congress

Since internal combustion engines will remain the primary mode of choice for mobility in the foreseeable future, both alternative (renewable) fuels and high-performance combustion concepts/ engines using fuels adapted for that purpose will be preferred for reducing the combustion impact on climate change. Government involvement, to enable financially the sound assessment of the future fuel options, investments, and to understand policy implications, is essential.
