Prof. Dr. Stefan Lechtenböhmer, Director Future Energy and Industry Systems Wuppertal Institut

The presence of large clusters in ports and hubs leads to enough scale to achieve large CO2 reductions, invest in promising new and greener fuels and renewable energy and creating a circular economy. Although investing in large scale green initiatives is expensive and asks for collaboration between many stakeholders, thus making it complex. Large opportunities for greening industry and logistics lie ahead!
