LISTEN: How can we effectively decarbonise transport?
Transport currently accounts for around a quarter of carbon emissions and is the largest emitting sector in the UK. Decarbonising the transport industry to hit the UK net-zero target by 2050 requires urgent, clear and decisive action.
This new episode of Engineering a Better World will explore how new technology can transform the UK into a hub for green transport technology and innovation, including through electric vehicles, hydrogen, and place-based solutions.
Host Jonn Elledge is joined by Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Transport Trudy Harrison MP, Kerry McCarthy MP, Shadow Minister for Green Transport, Professor Phil Blythe, IET Vice President and former Chief Scientific Adviser at the Department for Transport and Olivia Carpenter-Lomax, Chair of the IET Energy Sector Executive Committee.
