Local authorities across England are being invited to bid for a share of £5 million funding to fit buses with 'green technology' and offer better journeys through the Clean Bus Technology Fund 2015. There will be a maximum of £500,000 for bids offering schemes to cut NOx emissions and improve air quality.
Car makers will not invest in low carbon technology while polluting is cheap. Strict emissions standards are the only way to decarbonise road transport and stimulate a modal shift, argues William Todts.
The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) announced the Low Carbon Champions for 2014-15 last night at a packed gala dinner held in association with Cenex and LCV15 in Milton Keynes. The Champions Awards celebrate achievement and innovation in low carbon road transport.
A LowCVP exhibition at LCV2015 (9-10 September, Millbrook) showcases the economic and technical prospects for smaller - L-Category - vehicles in the UK and the potential for their growth to 2020. The exhibition is one element of the LowCVP’s ‘Bigger Thinking on Greener Vehicles’ theme, as the Partnership introduces its work plans for 2015-16 (featured on stand C3-316 at LCV2015).
The LowCVP will be holding a workshop on the morning of Monday 19 September (10am to 1pm, tbc) to help inform the Partnership's response to Defra's consultation which seeks views on draft plans to improve air quality in the UK.
