Join this year’s digital edition of the Transport & Climate Change Week from June 21 to 25. Together with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and Women in Green Hydrogen, the International Power-to-X Hub Berlin is hosting the “Hydrogen Hour”.

High level experts will give insights on key questions of the Power-to-X production processes, on applications and on potential markets. Each presentation will highlight a specific dimension of Power-to-X: climate, efficiencies, costs, aviation, shipping and further topics.

Thursday, June 24: Sustainable Aviation Fuels for Clean Skies?

Jointly organised with the World Economic Forum

The future of flying must be green. In recent decades, aviation has been the fastest growing transport sector. Yet, it accounts for approximately 4% of global carbon emissions and 12% of all CO2 emissions from the wider transportation sector. Moreover, non-CO2 emissions form up to two thirds of its climate impact. This comes alongside a variety of hazardous environmental and health effects. How can future fuels such as Power-to-Liquid/eFuels contribute to a sustainable transformation? What are the limits of technological pathways? And how can sustainable aviation fuels represent a chance for GIZ’s partner countries to tap into economic potentials? Moderated by the Director of GIZ’s International PtX Hub, Torsten Schwab, leading voices from the World Economic Forum, GIZ, Transport & Environment, Deutsche Post DHL Group and Neste will discuss how aviation should “go green”. As this is an interactive event, members of the audience are invited to raise their voices and pose questions to the panelists.

When? 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm Europe/Africa UTC +2 // 6:00 – 6:30 pm Asia/Latin America UTC +8/-6

This year’s Transport and Climate Change Week

The Transport and Climate Change Week brings together experts and decision-makers from all around the world to facilitate knowledge sharing and networking through peer-to-peer exchange and specialised workshops. Not only capacities are built, but meaningful relations established, which lie at the foundation of development cooperation.

Since it first took place in 2017, the Transport and Climate Change Week has been established as a successful format that enables dialogue, cooperation and exchange between developing countries and growing economies.

With more than 500 participants, experts and trainers joining in Berlin over the past years, the event is lifted to a whole new level in this year’s edition: In 2021, the exchanging and discussing of future solutions will take place connected by the new digital possibilities and a virtual conference room.

The Transport and Climate Change Week 2021 connects the transport community around the globe opening the door for active participation despite COVID-19 travel restrictions around the world.

Besides the global programme the participants can join regional formats of exchange. Be it in Latin America, Eastern Europe, Africa or Asia.

The Transport & Climate Change Week is organised by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) financed by the International Climate Initiative (IKI).
