The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) last week issued a challenge to the UK's transport policy and academic communities to contribute original or innovative proposals to enable the UK to accelerate the shift to low carbon vehicles and fuels.

The best proposals will be presented at a major conference in spring 2006 and all proposals should address one (or more) of the following subject areas:

  • fiscal and regulatory measures;
  • consumer information;
  • motor/fuels industry protocols or voluntary measures;
  • promoting industry cooperation/harmonising the low carbon supply chain.

Further details and information about taking up the ‘Low Carbon Transport Challenge’ are available on the LowCVP website.
