Decarbonising long haul road freight: opportunities and challengesBOOK NOW
29/10/2020 18:00:00 - 29/10/2020 19:00:00

When: 29 October 2020 18:00 - 19:00
Where: Webinar
Speaker: Alan McKinnon, Professor of Logistics, Kuehne Logistics University, Hamburg

It is generally acknowledged that the movement of freight in heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) will be difficult to decarbonise.  It accounts for around 16% of CO2 emissions from transport in the UK and has an average carbon intensity 3-4 times higher than that of rail. This talk will examine the technical and managerial options for cutting CO2 emissions from HGVs, summarising the results of recent research and reviewing initiatives in the UK and other countries. The options fall into four categories: reducing lorry kilometres, improving vehicle load factors, increasing energy efficiency and switching to lower carbon energy sources.  Full deployment of a broad set of measures offers the potential to achieve zero-carbon long haul freight by 2050.

Speaker: Mary Grant, Chief Executive, Porterbrook

Mary Grant is one of the few senior UK rail executives with in-depth knowledge and more than 20 years’ experience of both the passenger railway from her time as an operator and the infrastructure and asset management side of the industry.

She has led Porterbrook as CEO for three years and recognises the company’s role at the heart of the railway network. Mary has a strong commitment to working collaboratively with passenger and freight customers as well as stakeholders across the industry and wider political landscape.

Porterbrook’s expertise in long term private finance and asset management helps support a reliable and sustainable railway. The company has invested £3bn in new rolling stock to date, and is looking to invest a further £1bn over coming years. It also spends £3 million a week across the rail supply chain which supports 7,000 UK jobs.

Mary will share her views on the outlook for the rail industry as well as Porterbrook’s ambition to safely accelerate engineering innovations that decarbonise the railway and improve air quality.
