Zusammenfassung (Englisch)

The core objective of this work is to create comprehensive comparison, research and evaluation of most significant models of sustainable mobility, Hydrogen, Biodiesel and Electric energy as road transportation fuel sources looked over three most important aspects: Ecology and Environment, Technology and Economy. A core question stems from the objective statement: Will it make any sense to proceed with further research and development of these fuels and technologies despite higher costs, and what is the cost of our damaged environment? In order to answer this question along with numerous side questions which emerged during my research on this topic, numerous available data, previous studies and expert and professional literature as well as couple personal technology tests and evaluations have been used. Finally, it was concluded that even the smallest step in the direction of sustainable mobility has a significant impact on our environment and our future. Further developments of advanced, more sustainable technologies as well as alternative fuels are major points for future. Legal regulations and smart filling and charging station networks are shown to be equally important towards mass acceptance of such sustainable mobility concepts.
