What does it take to pull the Danish transport system in a more sustainable direction? The project looks upon a world where oil scarcity and demands for reduction of carbon emissions force us to look for alternative energy sources – the transport sector being no exception. The project will examine alternative ways to transform the Danish transport system into a 100 % renewable energy (RE) based system and look upon the consequences this might have on citizens everyday life and society as a hole. What are the obstacles in doing such a transformation? And how can we meet the technical, organizational and economical challenges? Central to the project is the development of a main scenario of a fully RE-based transport system in 2050 and a second scenario for 2020 based on best available technology (BAT).
