Progress reports of the National Platform Future of Mobility

National Platform Future of Mobility (NPM) publishes first progress report and further results from the working groups // Prof. Dr. Peter Gutzmer, Chairman of the FVV and Co-Chairman of WG 2 "Alternative Drive Technologies and Fuels for Sustainable Mobility" submitted to the working group an interim report of a new FVV meta study on "CtG Life Cycle Analyses of Different Powertrain Systems" // NPM's key technology roadmap is expected for the end of 2020

The work of the National Platform Future of Mobility (NPM) is making great progress: In the last quarter of 2019, the platform published a series of new suggestions and ideas on how to shape Germany's path into the future of mobility. From today's perspective, is there a drive technology with the greatest technological potential? What about the competitiveness of value generating networks for key technologies? And how can hydrogen be developed into a key technology for sector coupling?

National Platform Future of Mobility - Why?

The NPM provides avluable answers:

  • In September 2018, the NPM took up its work. After a good year of intensive collaboration and research, the members of the Steering Committee under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Henning Kagermann drew up a first interim balance in December 2019 and published a progress report. On the basis of clear analyses, concrete recommendations for action were developed on how to shape the mobility of tomorrow. The progress report was officially handed over to Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer and members of the German Bundestag in December.
     
  • WG 2 "Alternative Drive Technologies and Fuels for Sustainable Mobility" under the direction of Prof. Dr. Barbara Lenz (DLR) and Prof. Dr. Peter Gutzmer (Chairman of the FVV) has completed a short report. According to the current state of knowledge, it shows the maximum potential of various technology options up to the year 2030. In 2020, further challenging work is to be carried out with the elaboration of the ecological, economic and social impacts of the technologies described above and their classification in the framework conditions and a final key technology roadmap.
     
  • WG 5 "Connecting Mobility and Energy Networks, Sector Integration" headed by Stefan Kapferer (50Hertz Transmission GmbH) and Dr. Karsten Wildberger (E.ON SE) published two new reports: The PtX Roadmap shows how green hydrogen can be developed into a key technology for sector coupling in the transportation and energy sector. The LNG and CNG strategy for heavy-duty transport identifies measures to establish LNG and CNG as an alternative fuel for heavy duty transport.

Prof. Dr. Peter Gutzmer, Chairman of the FVV and Co-Chairman of WG 2, had submitted to the working group an interim report of a new FVV meta study on "CtG Life Cycle Analyses of Different Powertrain Systems". In February, Dietmar Goericke, FVV Managing Director, will discuss first findings of the study with members of the CSU parliamentary group at a parliamentary breakfast. The final results will be presented to the public at the FVV 2020 Spring Conference at the end of March.
