Transforming the transport sector: Towards a fossil fuel free future

Keynote and discussion with Amory Lovins, Co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Institute

Amory Lovins provided intellectual DNA for the energy transition, notably with his concept of "soft energy" and how it promotes peace and prosperity.  In recognition of this, he received the German Bundesverdienstkreuz 1.
