The Public Procurement of Innovation in Action Network (PPIA) commissioned Cenex to undertake a mobility technology foresighting study. The aim of the study was to inform the network of the main technological advances and future developments in transport which address the challenge of mitigating climate change. The report focuses on alternative drivetrain technologies and fuels that offer carbon reduction from city buses, although technologies relevant to taxis are also discussed. The analysis focuses on the likely performance of short-medium term solutions (< 10 years) and suggests some demand side measures and practises which can be implemented to assist in the transition to cleaner public transport fleets. The study draws on technology information from industry technology roadmaps, interviews with technology providers and industry experts. Future demand for public transport vehicles and current procurement practises are established from the PPIA network cities.
Cenex was commissioned by British Gas to examine the potential cost, emissions and performance implications of integrating electric vehicles into their fleet operations. British Gas operates the third largest fleet in the UK, covering over 160 million miles per year. The deployment risk assessment was undertaken though the following steps: Operational data from the British […]
Cenex was commissioned by the Environment Agency to undertake a strategic review of the Agency’s fleet to highlight which low carbon fuels could provide cost and environmental benefits. A fleet technology review was undertaken to provide an assessment of which low carbon fuels could be beneficial. This review provided information on practicability, availability, cost of […]
What is this project about? Electric vehicles (EVs) could have the potential to transform the way we use energy on a daily basis. Power cuts and expensive peak demand tariffs could become a thing of the past. Could you power your house with your car? Could you power your car with your house? Would you […]
