Solar Thermal Energy

Mobility is undergoing an extraordinary and exciting period of change. Closely linked to abundant and relatively cheap oil, reciprocating engines especially, are regarded as at least partially, responsible for climate change, and as a consequence, receive much of the blame. However, after the undisputed reign of the internal combustion engines lasting more than a century, many things are changing in the field of mobility.

Not only is climate change driving these changes, but also atmospheric pollution, the depletion of fossil fuels, the emergence of new modes of mobility, among others. Other, not necessarily new, propulsion systems may occupy the place of reciprocating combustion engines, and new clean fuels (e-fuels, hydrogen, electricity) will be needed.

However, there is increasing concern about the environmental impact of the mining activities required to provide the chemical elements necessary for batteries or the latest generation electric motors or the consequences of the production of vast quantities of biofuels and renewable electricity in order to satisfy the increasing demands of society.
