Transport solutions dominate low carbon workshop

Transport solutions dominate low carbon workshop
Cutting down the use of cars was a central theme of solutions for cutting carbon emissions designed by participants at a Low Carbon Living workshop.

The event, organised by the Forum for the Future, saw enthusiasts work together to design products and services which would be viable in a low carbon future.

Three of the eight solutions participants came up with involved motoring.

The Carb Crocodile was a suggestion to turn major roadways into giant car-trains, which drivers would board and turn off their engine as the system transported them close to their destination.

Another idea, Jam Solutions, would allow drivers to enter their location, destination and arrival time and in return provide them with a route that would avoid traffic jams and red lights, thereby reducing their fuel consumption.

The third of the transport ideas imagined a taxi service that charged the same as public transport by finding people doing similar journeys.

According to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, road transport accounts for 22 per cent of carbon emissions.
