•  What is the trade-off between electrification of the energy system and the request for alternative fuels in sectors difficult to electrify?

•  Do power-to-x technologies out-rule biogas and -fuels?

•  How do the use of power-to-x technologies influence the efficiency of the energy system?

•  What is the role of alternative fuels in sector coupling?

•  What are the technological challenges, risks and co-benefits of alternative fuels?

•  What are specific advantages and disadvantages of different energy carriers and which carrier is most adequate for which end-use sector?

•  How can RD&D policies accelerate affordable, effective and environmentally friendly alternative fuels?
