With over half of the world’s growing population living in urban environments, city transport is an increasingly acute challenge for city dwellers and governments alike. Cities suffer a particular problem in the form of air pollution. The LowCVP, however, set out to identify potential technology solutions to the low carbon challenge.
The LowCVP’s 2012 Technology Challenge, based around low carbon urban mobility ideas, aimed to accelerate the market introduction of new and innovative products and technologies, and to identify the most promising new ideas. It also aimed to provide an opportunity to emergent supply chain companies and technology developers, to promote themselves and add credibility to their low carbon urban mobility solutions.
