The transport sector possesses enormous potential to increase its energy efficiency and to reduce its environmental and social Impacts. Technology, next to intelligent planning and policies, helps to achieve multiple sustainability targets, e.g. regarding emission reductions and increasing road safety.
This can be done by well-proven, conventional advancements, Intelligent Transport System (ITS) solutions as well as alternative vehicle and fuel technologies. For example, the federal government is actively promoting electric forms of transportation as a clean mobility solution. Above, suitable technological solutions are required for the sound functioning and efficient operation of transport systems and infrastructures, supply chains and communication.
German technology has developed a reputation for outstanding reliability and high efficiency; the field is known for its highly trained and creative engineers, who work in universities, research institutes, and numerous specialised companies—some with international renown. German actors offer energy-efficient vehicles and machines for road, rail or logistics purposes; innovative information and ticketing solutions and modern equipment for public transport systems; ITS solutions for all transport modes; safety technologies for infrastructures and all kind of vehicles as well as complete solutions for alternative fuel and propulsion technologies.
