This talk will suggest that the recent focus on electric vehicle technology could result in more carbon emissions over the long run. It will review current proposal and projections for the uptake of these vehicles in the UK and elsewhere.
By reviewing the recent policy direction and evidence of potential EV uptake, it will pose and attempt to answer the question: have EVs damaged transport and climate change policy?
