Main Goal: Defining a Guideline for the effective Implementation of a Sustainable Alternative Fuel Strategy for Special Vehicles to meet the needs of the developing Smart Cities.
In an environment where zero emission is being sought as a target for our cities there are many alternative fuel sources available to power our special vehicles that are a fundamental part of our city operations. The applications are diverse with varying parameters of operation. This leads to complex decision making regarding the long-term investments of the machines and supporting infrastructures to ensure there is a safe, reliable, sustainable, costs effective solution adopted.
The aim of the initiative is to create a guideline that draws on the very latest and most appropriate technologies to recommend to cities to help steer a clear path in order to achieve the zero emission target. The principle will be to establish the guideline then set up pilots, taking account of available funding, to create a basis upon which other cities may follow. Ultimately this should be the guideline for defining the optimum long term purchasing plans that will lead to zero emission being realised in a consistent and organised manner utilising the very best technologies matching technical availability with demand.
