Italy-based integrated energy company Eni and Italian national association of local public transport companies ASSTRA, announced an alliance today focused on sustainable mobility and decarbonized transportation solutions.

The initiative will include joint studies to share expertise, mutual participation in thematic working groups and the promotion of a joint position paper highlighting the different existing energy, technological and organisational opportunities. The companies highlighted in particular opportunities arising from the integration of public transport and forms of shared mobility, the use of biolubricants and biofuels in public transport, as well as the application of the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and “Well to Wheel” approach in assessing the impact the various mobility solutions have on emissions.

The partners will also explore hydrogen mobility, beginning with assessing the possibility of using hydrogen as an alternative fuel.
