Transport accounts for around a quarter of UK greenhouse gas emissions and significantly affects roadside air quality. Decarbonising transport by promoting low carbon vehicles, and attracting investment and uptake in innovative new technologies is essential in making our cities cleaner, greener and smarter.

 

The Energy and Climate Change Secretary Amber Rudd recently warned that more needs to be done to accelerate the rollout of transport technologies if the UK is to meet binding EU targets to source 15 per cent of its energy from renewable sources by 2020. The Committee on Climate Change have stated that projected emissions reductions from current policies fall short of a cost-effective trajectory and further measures are needed to meet future carbon budgets, suggesting that there is significant potential for emissions reductions through continued improvement in fuel efficiency for conventional vehicles, switching to alternatively fuelled vehicles and from changing behaviour.

This All Party Parliamentary Renewable and Sustainable Energy Group (PRASEG) event will assess how we might decarbonise transport in cities, reducing emissions and improving air quality. Bringing together policy and industry experts, this seminar will focus on current policy, future investment pathways and areas of innovation against the backdrop of meeting future carbon budgets.

Speakers include:

  • Andy Eastlake, Managing Director, Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership
  • Poppy Welch, Head of Go Ultra Low
  • Stuart Graham, UK Business Development Manager, Air Products
