According to the motto #LecturesForFuture, scientists around the world have given lectures offering insights into scientific work on climate crisis and further relevant societal challenges. These lectures aim to open up a critical public discourse on climate-, environmental- and sustainability-related topics.
Prof. Hubert Gasteiger, a TUM chemistry professor, has now also dedicated one of his lectures to the #LecturesForFuture project. In his talk he addresses the question of sustainable mobility and gives interesting insights into the current research and remaining challenges regarding battery electric cars and fuel cell electric vehicles.
The transformation of our mobility is the subject of numerous heated debates in living rooms and talk shows and is intensely discussed by politicians, business, society and the media. Often, you might be asked about your opinion because you study “something with chemistry…”. This is why we strongly recommend you to watch this lecture and gain a basic understanding of the technology, chances and challenges. It should be the responsibility of us all (as ongoing scientists, engineers, managers, decision-makers and voters) to bring some objective arguments into this discussion.
