The future of automotive engineering is green and CO2-lean - at the same time economical feasibility remains a priority. This creates the need to develop a cross-sectoral mindset outside the core areas of powertrain and vehicle.
We provide independent studies and strategic advice on future energy and fuel pathways in the mobility sector as well as CO2 analysis and scenario simulations throughout the life cycle.
Hard-to-electrify sectors and industries as well as existing mobility fleets around the globe will need renewable hydrocarbon in the mid- and long-term. Using CO2 inputs from various sources like biomass or direct-air-capture synthetic fuels can be seen as CO2 neutral in the whole life cycle.
Our solutions start with analyzing the current status, evaluating the options for improvements up to real-life energy measurements and demo system set-up. Depending on the complexity of the task, simulations are based on AVL’s proven toolchain including dedicated and specific digital twin models.
In the long term, avoiding CO2 emissions in a vehicle's life cycle will become the new target. The transport sector will increasingly compete for the limited renewable energy sources.
