GREAT Midterm Conference


Let’s Act! – The future of alternative fuels

GREAT is very happy to welcome you to the project’s midterm conference. This conference will cover the current situation for alternative fuels in the GREAT geography and how we all can contribute to speed up the shift.

What are the latest technical developments? What policy measures are most effective on different levels of government? How can we create a sustainable business case with alternative fuels? Changing consumer behaviour – is it just related to TCO? How can we work together to strengthen our green corridor?

Welcome to a day of insight and inspiration on alternative fuels. Whether you work on the municipal, regional, national or EU level, represent private companies or academia. Participation in the GREAT midterm conference is free of charge. Registrations are already open and seats are limited.
