Public lecture: Scrap your car to save the planet

Event Time: 6:15pm to 8:00pm
Venue: Lancaster University Management School

Join Lancaster University to celebrate it's 50th anniversary with a public lecture from Professor Roger Kemp from the Department of Engineering.


It is widely accepted scientifically and politically that we have to make a substantial reduction in carbon dioxide emissions if we are to avoid the worst effects of climate change. Our continued reliance on petrol and diesel cars and gas-fired central heating is unsustainable.


The problem is what to do. Rather than driving to the shops, should we stay at home and order on-line? Are electric cars the answer – but, if so, how do we ensure they are charged only with “green electricity”? Rather than a condensing boiler, should we buy a heat pump? Should we be campaigning for a light rail system in Lancaster?


Addressing these questions requires looking at the Britain’s energy system as a whole and, when we do this, some of the answers may be counter-intuitive, which many will find surprising.


Roger Kemp spent many years in industry working on transport projects, from electric delivery vans and Docklands Light Railway to Eurostar. Since joining the University he has been heavily involved in energy policy and, in particular transport energy use and the impact of low-carbon policies on Britain’s electricity system. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Roger has used a number of reports in preparation for this lecture - as follows:
