The Energy Innovation and Collaboration team at the University of Nottingham have created a free event where they will speak about the new plans for sustainable travel.

Decarbonisation of transport is a key part of the UK’s climate crisis strategy, with transport having a key role in achieving the goal of having a net zero greenhouse gas emission in 2050.

Steve Cornes, Principal Energy Projects Officer at Notts City Council is confirmed to explain transport’s role in Nottingham’s aim to be carbon neutral by 2028.

In March 2020 the Government announced the following plans:

  • Accelerating modal shift to public and active transport
  • Decarbonising how we get our goods
  • UK as a hub for green transport technology and innovation
  • Decarbonisation of road vehicles
  • Place-based solutions
  • Reducing carbon in a global economy

The aim of the “Future Sustainable Transport” event is to bring together representatives from industry, local government and academia, to describe the efforts being made to achieve these.

The event is on Tuesday 6 July, 1pm-2:30pm and you can register your attendance here.
