Fourth Electric vehicles - the journey from power station to wheel lecture

Continuing the series of lectures on 'Electric Vehicles - the journey from power station to wheel', this evening lecture which took place at EPE 2011 explored the relationship between the UK Government's current drive for low carbon transportation and the UK's electric power generation capability.

Energy is central to the development of the modern world, but is increasingly facing new challenges. How can the global market place ensure the supply of clean energy that will enhance and improve the daily lives of so many?

With road based transport currently accounting for 22 per cent of the UK's CO2 emissions reducing the reliance on carbon based fuels in this area is a priority. Electric vehicles offer the potential to reduce CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional petrol/diesel engine driven vehicles.

This lecture explored the aim for zero carbon electricity, the emerging energy gap and the subsequent need for significant investment.
