How do you Decarbonise the transport sector? Part 2
Short - medium term up to 2035
This is part two of our four part series where we will look at setting the scene, short/medium term, long term to 2050 and infrastructure.
Decarbonising the Transport industry to hit the UK net-zero target by 2050 requires urgent, clear and decisive action. With the increasing interconnection and complexity of infrastructure, and it is vital that a joined-up, whole-system approach is prioritised. Transport has a huge role to play in the economy reaching net zero.
Major decarbonisation pathways for transportation include switching to lower-carbon fuels, improving vehicle efficiency, and improving system-wide efficiency and exploring the use of autonomous vehicles and vehicle sharing.
This series will provide a cross industry platform to share ideas from Aerospace, Automotive and Road Transport, Railway and Marine on decarbonisation initiatives/programmes/workstreams and its impact to the everyday life.
In Part 2, we will be joined by the following speakers from industry and academia:
• Dr Stuart Hillmansen, Reader in Railway Traction Systems, Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education
• Peter Selway, Segment Marketing Manager, Power Products, Schneider Electric
• Amanda Lyne, Managing Director, ULEMCo Ltd and Chair of UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association - ULEMCo Ltd
• Moderator, Dr John Easton, School of Engineering (EESE), University of Birmingham
