Improving our environment
by promoting clean energy and developing EV’s of the future

Facts

  • In 2009 transport accounted for 39% of all final energy consumption in the UK¹.
  • 97% of the energy consumed by transport was the direct use of petroleum¹.
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2) accounted for about 84% of the UK’s man-made greenhouse gas emissions in 2009².
  • In 2010 an estimated 25% of CO2 emissions; 121 million tonnes were from the transport sector².
  • Road transport makes up around 90% of all domestic transport emissions with car travel accounting for 55%¹.

Continued reliance on fossil fuels is not sustainable and is damaging the environment
Clean energy from sustainable, renewable sources is the future.

Targets

  • The UK is to achieve 15% of energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020³.
  • 10% of UK transport energy demand is to be from renewable sources³.
  • Scottish Government has set a target for 30% of overall energy demand from renewable sources by 2020, with 100% of electricity generated from renewable sources4.

Shockingly, the use of electric or hybrid road vehicles remains negligible in the UK¹.
If we are to persuade the public to leave their old fossil fuelled cars, we need to show that zero-emission electric cars are exciting, tough, sexy and something you want to be seen in.
