How do you Decarbonise the Transport Sector? Part 3
Medium–Long term up to 2050
This is part three 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.
Our speakers for this webinar will be:
Dr Helen McAllister, Strategy & Planning Director (Network), Network Rail
Dr Gianandrea Mannarini, Senior Scientist, Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change
Professor Pericles Pilidis, Head of Power and Propulsion, Centre for Propulsion Engineering, Cranfield University
Our moderator will be:
