How do you Decarbonise the Transport Sector? Part 4

Infrastructure

This is the final part 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.

Dr Jen Baxter, Director of Innovation and Policy, Protium Green Solutions and Head of Protium Wales and Non-Executive Director at Industry Wales

Catherine Leung, Atg Lead Environmental Manager, MTR Corporation Limited, Hong Kong

Michael Sharkey, Technical Sales Manager for EV Charging, Siemens Smart Infrastructures GB&I
