With transport constituting the single most significant source of terrestrial carbon emissions in the UK and a sector that has thus far proven resistant to change, the electrification of mobility has become central to plans to reach net zero with the ban of the sale of combustion engine cars having been bought forward to 2030.
Focusing largely if not exclusively on road transport, this talk will consider the potential reductions in carbon emissions associated with a mass transition to electric vehicles as well as the emerging challenges. The talk will also consider the natural resource implications as well as the exciting opportunities associated with the integration of mobility and energy systems.
This event is for teachers.
Dr Richard Waller is a Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography at Keele University. Whilst his main research interests encompass both modern and ancient glacial and periglacial environments, Richard is also interested in transport geography and clean energy production, and has recently published a paper on rapid charging provision, multiplicity and battery electric vehicle (BEV) mobility in the UK.
