Low Carbon Car / Van Manufacturer of the Year 2017 Sponsored by Michelin Tyre Plc

Michelin is proud to manufacture over 8 million tyres in the UK per year. To control its environmental impact, Michelin continually assesses its operations and products.  The company develops technologies aimed at reducing its tyres’ rolling resistance, increasing longevity to reduce the number of end-of-life tyres to be processed and is committed to reducing the carbon emissions from its three UK production sites.  Michelin employs independent test bodies to test its tyres against competitors to prove that they last longer, improve fuel consumption and help reduce vehicle CO2 emissions. 

Low Carbon Fuel Initiative of the Year Sponsored by Shell

There is no single “silver bullet” that will deliver sustainable mobility over the coming decades for all geographies. Different fuels for different journeys in different places has the potential to become the norm as the world looks to tackle CO2 emissions from transport. Shell is working across a full fuels portfolio as the use of hydrogen, biofuels, electricity and natural gas in transport increases creating a global ‘mosaic’ of fuels and drivetrain pathways that are optimised depending on the transport mode, journey length and local circumstances at the country level.  

Low Carbon Vehicle Operator of the Year Sponsored by BAE Systems

The BAE Systems HybriDrive® propulsion system is a leading-edge green technology, with a record of proven performance and excellence in service.  This driving force is behind some of the world’s largest fleets of low carbon buses. To further help operators reduce their impact on the environment, BAE Systems will shortly introduce its latest development of the HybriDrive propulsion system – on-route, inductive charging.  This will bring even greater fuel savings, while providing a quieter experience for passengers and pedestrians alike.  This new technology is the latest step along the road to economically and operationally viable zero-emission bus operations, to which BAE Systems is passionately committed. http://www.hybridrive.com/
