Decarbonising trucks, trains, boats and planes
A conference organised by the REA’s Renewable Transport Fuels Group

Electrification should help decarbonise passenger car transport in the future, but heavier haulage, shipping and aviation are far more challenging sectors. A new sub-target for strategic fuels for these sectors was introduced on 1st January 2019, via the amended Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO). This Development Fuels sub-target requires oil companies to source a growing percentage of their supply from fuels such as renewable aviation and drop in fuels, hydrogen or synthetic natural gas made from eligible feedstocks. The eligible feedstocks comprise biomass wastes (but not those currently used in the making of biodiesel) and fuels made from renewable electricity.

What role might Development Fuels play, and what potential is there for more conventional biofuels, such as higher blend biodiesel and HVO? To what extent might off-gas grid, hard to heat housing compete for these fuels?

Come to this conference to find out what the fuels of the future might be for trucks, trains, boats and planes; hear about the technologies involved; meet the companies developing these fuels and see how the DfT is taking the first steps in encouraging the transformation of fuelling these hard-to-decarbonise sectors.

The Role of Future Mobility in the Transport for the South East StrategyBook Now
Start Date:07/01/2020 19:00:00
End Date:07/01/2020 20:45:00
Event Code:SG0390
07 January 2020, 18:30 for 19:00 - 20:45 
Where: Room 313, Cliffe Building, East Sussex College, Mountfield Road, LEWES, BN7 2XH
Meeting Point: 

Speaker: Rupert Clubb B Eng, C Eng, FICE, FCIHT Director, Communities, Economy and Transport, East Sussex County Council

Mobility – how people move around and access opportunities – is on the cusp of change. This new mobility future has the potential to reduce emissions, congestion and road accidents and improve accessibility and social inclusion. However, in the absence of a considered policy direction, it could also exacerbate existing social and environmental impacts and lead to a transport system dominated by private autonomous travel with increased travel demand and congestion.

This talk will consider the role of future mobility in the transport strategy that Transport for the South East is developing to deliver a prosperous, inclusive and sustainable future for the area.

Speaker: Nick Richardson FCILT, Technical Principal, Integrated Transport Division, Mott Macdonald

Nick Richardson, a Director and Trustee of the Chartered Institute, makes a welcome return to present members with his well-informed views on the future of transport. That future, which inevitably will see an expansion of demand, is now an important element in a growing awareness of the fragility of the planet. The supply of transport will have to be a sustainable one. There are already many possibilities for such a format but the problem is : what is likely to work and should be developed and what is unlikely to work and needs to be rapidly discontinued ? An essential look into a crystal ball for all transport practitioners !
