Green Transport UK: Electric Vehicles Charged With Potential!
posted by on Monday, June 07, 2010 - 05:21 AM

gfoat writes "The Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE) has published a report entitled Electric Vehicles Charged With Potential. This indicates that a significant proportion of road vehicles will have to be electric powered in order to meet the UK target to reduce C02 emissions by 80% by 2050. The RAE considers that there will probably be a mixture of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) and pure Electric Vehicles (EVs). "

Green Transport Climate Change in Copenhagen
posted by on Thursday, December 17, 2009 - 06:08 AM

gfoat writes "The negotiations taking place in Copenhagen will lead to the growing use of low carbon vehicles, powered by electricity or biofuels. At the meeting, the UK Met Office announced that the last 10 years have been “by far” the warmest decade the world has experienced since records began. They said that emissions would have to peak within the next 8 to 10 years if we are to avoid the global temperature rising by more than 2C. President Obama’s negotiating position at the talks will be strengthened, as the US Government has classified carbon dioxide as a toxic gas that endangers public health. This is a prerequisite for strong new emissions standards for cars and trucks. Green MotorSport and our partners have been working for the past decade to develop low carbon vehicles, together with the innovatative energy technologies which will power them."

Green Transport The Future of Motoring
posted by on Sunday, April 19, 2009 - 01:38 PM

gfoat writes "As the UK Prime Minister promises support for the electric vehicle industry, Green MotorSport asks whether he is backing the right people. The British electric vehicle industry has traditionally led the world and already has the finest electric drive trains, but we have to wait another two years for the automotive industry to get its act together before grants are available for people wanting to buy electric vehicles. Competition from innovative energy industries could conserve the UK’s diminishing fuel resources, create new jobs and make Britain a leading exporting country again! The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has challenged the Government to back his ambitious plans to make London the electric car capital of Europe, helping to create jobs, cut carbon emissions and improve air quality. The Mayor has outlined a series of major initiatives to achieve at least 100,000 electric vehicles on the capital’s streets as soon as possible, equating to five per cent of total vehicles.
