Power-to-Fuels: E-Fuels as an Important Option for a Climate-Friendly Mobility of the Future
The Paris climate accord - in continuation of the original Kyoto agreement - and the German federal government's climate protection plan establish ambitious goals for overall CO2 reduction. In 2050, a reduction of 80-95 % in comparison to the reference year 1990 is aspired for. This essay tries to outline challenges and boundary conditions for using e-fuels to directly substitute currently used fossil fuels in internal combustion engines and turbines.
