In the budget announced later this month Prime Minister Gordon Brown is promising a "Green" route to economic recovery.

Transport will be a focal point, trials of electric cars, a network of roadside charging points is one plan. To be trialed in a couple of cities over the coming years. Along with incentives for environmentally friendly car makers being amoung planned measures.

Although this is a good step forward in creating A Low Carbon Economy, is this what the transport sector needs. A large amount of money being invested in research and development for such schemes.

Are there other schemes that could be implemented that could accelerate the transition to A Low Carbon Economy?

Are there other industries that could benefit from a green focus?

Could more be done to help homeowners and businesses become more environmetally friendly and low carbon?
