It was such an honour to moderate a panel “Beyond Fossil Fuels – Energy for Transportation” at South Summit 2023 in Madrid. We discussed alternative energy sources to power the transportation sector and reduce its dependence on fossil fuels. It was an invigorating and inspiring discussion focussed on the benefits and challenges of each solution, their commercial viability, and their potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.
