Electric Avenue: Are EVs the answer?
Current thinking on future vehicle technologies is firmly focused on Electric Vehicles (EV). Are we barking up the wrong green tree and should we be seeking alternative green options?
Jorgen Pedersen, Director of New Technology, SYSTRA has been pulling together curious minds to discuss the technology surrounding the fuels that could help the transport sector reach Net Zero by 2050. In this second article in the series he lifts the lid on electric vehicles from their origin, their green credentials, and of course their future use.
