The LowCVP has completed a research project commissioned to provide detailed evidence about the UK market for minibuses and the potential they offer for reducing carbon emissions. Although bus and coach operators have small minibus fleets, they contribute a higher share of emissions as they are often higher mileage and relatively old vehicles. Taxi and private hire vehicles account for the largest proportion of emissions of CO2 as well as local pollutants NOx and PM.
The Transport Minister Baroness Kramer has announced the next phase of support for plug-in car drivers to recharge their vehicles at home.
Transport minister Baroness Kramer has announced a £5m Clean Vehicle Technology Fund funding which aims to cut pollution in areas of poor air quality through action at local council level. The Fund will encourage action to cut emissions from buses and other vehicles primarily operating in urban areas.
The judging process has begun after this year's LowCVP's Low Carbon Champions Awards received a record number of entries. The organisation is now well under way for the Awards presentations which will take place at the low carbon transport networking event of the year at Jury's Inn, Milton Keynes on Wednesday September 10. The LowCVP has teamed up with Cenex-LCV to present the first LCV 2014 gala dinner featuring the the Champions Awards winners announcements. There are still opportunities to get involved in the event.
For the first time in the United States' history, federal rules to reduce carbon emissions in the power sector by 30 per cent of 2005 levels by 2030 have been announced by President Obama. The Climate Action Plan proposes sweeping steps to limit heat-trapping pollution from coal-fired power plants and to boost renewable energy production on federal property.
