InnoTrans Podcast: Siemens Mobility CEO Michael Peter calls for more urgency in the changeover to sustainable mobility

How can an innovative mobility sector contribute to reaching Europe’s climate targets? That is the question that Siemens Mobility CEO Michael Peter will be answering in the latest InnoTrans Podcast. In the episode he will look at the current challenges facing the industry and talk about specific solutions such as hydrogen batteries and the European Train Control System (ETCS).

“We need to focus on the right technologies now in order to get more people enthusiastic about public transport. Our trains are already pioneers when it comes to making the mobility sector carbon-neutral“, said Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility.
