Logistics and renewable energy industries from Northern Germany discuss sustainable heavy traffic
German Federal Ministry of
Transport is promoting alternative propulsion systems in freight transport in the shape of exemption
charges and an investment subsidy from 8,000 to 40,000 euros
for trucks with a weight in excess of 7.5 tonnes. This
includes compressed natural gas (CNG), liquid natural gas (LNG), battery or fuel cell electric
propulsion systems that use
hydrogen as energy source. Which
of these propulsion
technologies offer the greatest benefits in terms of efficiency, regional
value creation and climate protection?
order to answer these questions and
to network logistics with the renewable energy sector, the Schleswig-Holstein Renewable Energy Network Agency (EE.SH) invited participants from both sectors to a renewable
energy workshop on
“LNG or Hydrogen – Options
for Action for the Logistics Sector” at
the Neumünster Business Development Agency’s LOG-IN start-up centre.
partners and sponsors were the Logistics Initiative Schleswig-Holstein, Schleswig-Holstein Logistics Business Association, MBA Neumünster GmbH, Herbert Voigt GmbH & Co. KG and the Mittelholstein Business Association.
