Clean and energy-efficient vehicles

Subscribe to RSS - Clean and energy-efficient vehicles

Clean and energy-efficient vehicles, such as hybrid/electric buses and cars, aim to reduce greenhouse and other pollutant emissions, fuel consumption and fossil fuel dependency.

Exhaust gas treatment systems, alternative drive trains and the use of alternative fuels and energy storage systems can improve the environmental record of vehicles. Besides technical interventions, promotional and procurement initiatives can accelerate the uptake of low-emission vehicles.

Standards for Developing a SUMP Action Plan

A report from the CIVITAS SUMPS-Up project provides city planners with the step-by-step know-how necessary to develop SUMP action plans. Furthermore, it takes into account different levels of SUMP development experience and SUMP maturity among cities.

The report contains guidance in terms of what to include in an action plan, including responsibilities, resources, stakeholder coordination, time plans, and funding sources.

In addition, it breaks down the process of developing an action plan into a six-step process, with the final stage of this an implementation plan.

LOW-CARB WEBINAR: How can public transport assist companies to develop mobility management measures?

It’s no secret that daily commuting to remote business districts can take a toll on people’s time, energy, and daily carbon footprint. Accessibility within an FUA is a vital part of reducing reliance on cars and facilitating a transition to low-carbon mobility systems that should be steered by clean public transport networks.

This webinar presents LOW-CARB's innovative solutions for connecting remote business districts to residential areas within functional urban areas. Therefore, allowing industry workers more sustainable routes and modes of travel to their places of work.
