As part of our Times Earth event series, join us on the morning of Wednesday, September 29 for a discussion which looks at how climate change is shaping the future of transport, in association with easyJet.
Transporting people and goods is the biggest single source of UK carbon emissions, responsible for 28% and eclipsing even the energy sector. Within the next three decades, our transport world will change faster than it has done in the past century as we accelerate progress to net zero. What does the future hold for our cars, trains and planes?
Hosted by Hannah Prevett, Deputy Editor of The Times Enterprise Network the panel will include:
David Morgan, Director of Operation, easyJet
Graham Hoare, President, Global Operations, Britishvolt
Isabel Dedring, Global Transport Leader, Arup
Mary Grant, Chief Executive Officer, Porterbrook
They will be considering key questions including:
- How can we reinvent aviation with radical new, zero-emission technologies?
- How can we modernise the UK rail network and get rid of diesel trains, and accommodate alternatives to electrification like hydrogen powered trains?
- With a ban on the sale of pure fossil fuel-powered cars and vans by the end of this decade, how green are electric cars - really?
