More than two-thirds of people think low-carbon fuel is the future of transport

View original

As reported by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, a survey commissioned by the North West Hydrogen Alliance (NWHA) shows 69% of people believe it is important for every UK household to move away from fossil fuelled cars in favour of lower-carbon alternatives such as electricity and hydrogen. The sample of 2000 people shows inter-generational differences in opinion related to the use of low-carbon fuels. Nearly 80% of 16-34 year olds advocate the move to low-carbon fuelled cars, compared to 58% for those over 55. 60% of 16-24s have considered buying an electric car compared to 27% of over 55s. The study also showed over half (56%) of respondents correctly identified transportation is the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, making up 23% of all emissions.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
