This short ebook explains — for a global business audience — the latest developments in the world of sustainable transport. Not the vehicles or modes of transport themselves, but their means of propulsion.
New technologies and players are coming and going with bewildering speed. Some observers are putting their money on electric vehicles, others on hybrids; some see electric vehicles as a mere stepping stone to hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles, already being seen on city streets. The mere mention of biofuels often provokes fierce arguments about their sustainability, yet they, too, are here to stay and will be filling more and more fuel tanks.
By the time you finish this book, you will understand:
- The pros and cons of all these technologies and the programs around the world furthering their development,
- The major players large and small, the catalysts for change, and
- The successful partnerships and innovative business models being employed.
You will also be able to make informed decisions about investments, whether you’re considering a new fleet, haulage or mobility of any kind, or whether to install an electric vehicle charging point in your property.
“…That’s why I now consider these DoShorts such a winner – the reader of Sustainable Transport Fuels Business Briefing,after 90 minutes or less, can sit down at a meeting and impress the boss with a working knowledge of transportation fuels.” JOANNE SCHROEDER, Domestic Fuel
