Dr Léa Ravensbergen writes about her adventures cycling around Oxford studying older adults' mobility
A new study published in Nature Energy found that without substantial levels of energy demand reduction the UK will be unable to achieve net-zero by 2050.
Researchers from the University of Oxford's Transport Studies Unit (TSU) and Energy and Power Group (EPG) have today released a series of briefings for policymakers to support the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs).
The University of Oxford's Transport Studies Unit (TSU) has today published its Annual Report 2021, reflecting on the projects undertaken and milestones reached in the past year.
How much CO2 can be saved by active mobility in cities?
To understand how much CO2 can be saved by active mobility in cities, Academy WebTV travelled to Oxford and London to meet with Dr Christian Brand - Senior Research Fellow and Associate Professor at the ECI and TSU - and Dr Audrey de Nazelle - Senior Lecturer and Co-Deputy Director of the Centre of Environmental Policy at the Imperial College London.
If we all choose the fastest mode of travel in a city, the whole city gets slower - and more congested
People in cities often choose how to travel based on how long it will take. We wanted to see what would happen if everyone acted selfishly. How would that compare, we wondered, with a theoretical case in which people chose their mode to minimise travel times for society as a whole and not only for themselves. Dr Juan Pablo Orjuela explores what happens in an article for The Conversation.
Decarbonising global transport - Prof Tim Schwanen interviewed on ABC Australian national radio
Last year, the British government announced the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans would be banned by 2030. To achieve this, the UK needs to rapidly stimulate uptake of electric vehicles to meet the end-of-decade goal. Prof Tim Schwanen spoke to ABC NewsRadio's Thomas Oriti on ABC NewsRadio's national breakfast radio programme.
