C3-Mobility – The Project

C3-Mobility is one of 15 research associations of the research initiative “energy transition in the transport sector” of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The framework of the initiative is a 16th association – the accompanying research. The initiative forms an interface between the energy and transport sectors. Hence, a variety of synergies can be exploited, and interdisciplinary approaches can be used to research new and electricity-based fuels for transport by road, water and air. The political options for action to achieve the climate protection goals of Paris are also being expanded by the sectoral link between energy and transport. The first projects – also C3-Mobility – already started in autumn 2018. They all look at the production, transport or use of electricity-based fuels from different perspectives.

The accompanying research generates results from the individual associations and prepares them for better comparability using a comprehensive data concept. In addition, it serves to network with each other and shows further synergies. At the end of the term, there will be a guide to action options for researching, developing, producing, using and bringing to market synthetic fuels.

On the following pages you will learn more about the approaches, motivation and goals as well as the exact procedure and the concept of our research cooperation.
