Low emission buses to transport delegates at LCV2016

London’s new Routemaster bus

Delegates at Cenex-LCV2016, the UK’s largest technology showcasing and networking event for the low carbon vehicle community, which this year features the ‘UK Pavilion’, will be transported in some of the latest examples of low emission buses.

Such vehicles are now being adopted in large numbers by UK operators, thanks to an initiative by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP).

Eight vehicles, examples of the latest low emission bus technologies – including parallel diesel hybrids, flywheel hybrid, biomethane and full electric buses – will be in operation, transporting delegates from the parking area to the main event.

Once they arrive at the show, which is to be held at Millbrook Proving Ground on 14-15 September 2016, delegates will be able to visit the LowCVP’s Low Emission Bus Showcase (immediately behind the registration desk – stand C2/17) and meet leading representatives from the LowCVP’s bus community including Volvo Bus, ADL and Optare.

Although older buses have historically contributed up to two-thirds of NOx emissions in areas with the most dense traffic, 40% of new buses sold in 2015 met the exacting requirements for low carbon qualification. The UK’s success in rapidly transforming the UK bus market from a significant part of the emissions problem to being a vital component of the solutions for clean mobility, is a demonstration of effective collaboration between technology developers and policy makers.

The development of robust assessment processes such as the LowCVP’s Low Emission Bus Test (to show how the Euro VI emissions systems deliver real world benefits), and the introduction of government support schemes (with LowCVP advice and support) such as the revision to the Bus Service Operators’ Grant (BSOG) incentive and the series of Green Bus Funds, have been important building blocks in this process.

The LowCVP Managing Director Andy Eastlake said: “Maintaining our ability to move around in increasingly congested towns and cities is more critical today than ever before. With road transport responsible for around a quarter of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions and up to 60% of roadside NOx pollution in many cities around the UK, the introduction of cleaner, low emission buses is a good example of how we can achieve a low emission transport future.”

The LowCVP is also a collaborator in the UK Pavilion (Hall 3) at LCV2016. The Pavilion – a major new initiative from funding and policy-supporting bodies associated with the UK Government – will be a showcase for the entire UK innovation support ecosystem, from academia and research support through to commercialisation and mainstream adoption. It aims to demonstrate the Government’s continued commitment to innovation and growth in the automotive industry in the UK.

Participants who will be exhibiting on the UK Pavilion include the Advanced Propulsion Centre and its Spokes Communities; the Automotive Council; the Centre for Connected & Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV); the Engineering and Physical Research Council (EPSRC); Innovate UK; the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP); the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI).

Visit the LowCVP stands at LCV2016 (LowCVP Bus Showcase – C2/17 and GREAT Pavilion – Hall three) on September 14-15 (at Millbrook, Bedfordshire) where LowCVP staff and bus industry representatives will be on hand to help LCV delegates to connect, collaborate and influence the next generation of policy and to help replicate the success of low emission buses across all areas of road transport.
