10 years ago the future of transportation was seemingly destined to be reliant on fossil fuels for a long time to come – for many the outlook is still the same, with fossil fuel alternatives (biofuels) appearing to be a novelty idea.

 

However,  it’s 2015 and the landscape is a little different…

 

There are over 8, 266 electric car charging points across 3,191 UK locations 

And almost 29,000 less petrol forecourts in the UK than there were 40 years ago – a huge step in the right direction as we look to decarbonising our cities and suburban areas.

 

99% of Mcdonalds restaurants recycle their cooking oil to create biofuels for their delivery trucks 

This sends a huge message to other corporate bodies about their corporate and social responsibilities.

 

Marks and Spencers use non-crop derived biofuels in it’s fleet of vehicles 

This is helping to lead the way in truly sustainable transport.

 

Bristol council have a bus service that is fuelled by biomethane developed from human waste 

The bus, brilliantly, takes the number 2 route.
