About the book
The way we move has varied, not only in the form, but in the fuel we use. Climate change and growing environmental concern make us look for energy resources that are sustainable.
The automotive sector is transforming its fleet of vehicles to adapt them to this requirement of society, which is also being translated into increasingly restrictive legislation.
Other alternative fuels are currently considered in the deployment of a new mobile fleet that will entail a change in the way we move - sharing resources, such as the vehicle - and the resources and way of refueling.
And this transformation takes us further and further away from the oil sector as the only fuel for mobility. It is already common to consider a fraction of biodiesel or bioethanol in current fossil fuels, but the policy is moving towards a greater penetration of renewable energy resources.
Most of the new renewable sources will be generated in a distributed scenario, so it is necessary to study the logistic to transport them in a cost-effective and sustainable way.
In summary, the aim of the book encompases the whole cycle of the energy resources, both conventional and renewables, associated to mobility.
