The energy conversion leads to even greater shares of renewable electricity ("green electricity") in the system. Nevertheless, the emission of CO2 is not yet decreasing as expected. The major neglect of the mobility sector is one of the causes. This sector is experiencing one of the greatest upheavals in its history by discussing drive trains. As a possible critical problem solver, chemistry plays a largely passive role, although it will be severely affected by the results of this discussion.
