Energy and Climate Seminar 4: Decarbonising Transport

Vehicle electrification has the potential to offer huge benefits in terms of decarbonisation and will go a long way to helping the UK meet its greenhouse gas emissions targets. It is not without its challenges, however.This talk will cover the work the Energy Technologies Institute has led to examine the implications for vehicle decarbonisation and what sort of systems and structures can be put in place to ensure these changes do not have a detrimental effect on either the utility of these vehicles or on the cost of travel.
