"Alternative Fuels Have Failed to Meet Expectations": Six Questions to Uwe Kunert

Interview of September 2, 2015

Mr. Kunert, what share of global oil consumption is made up of fuel consumption?

Currently, over half of the world’s oil is used for transportation purposes, of which
roughly four-fifths are used for road transport – which is the focus of our report. Roughly one-tenth (and increasing) is used for air transport; the rest is used for rail
transport and maritime traffic.
