Abstract

The Chapter highlights the role of green technologies and provide an insight into the ways in which they can help reduce carbon emissions. The chapter studies various options and features related to the green technology (alternative fuel powered vehicles) in terms of emissions in transport logistics. The chapter shades light on Alternative Fuel Powered Vehicles (AFVs) providing information on the current UK market, it then goes into detail about their various types; including layout, design and features. The chapter explains comprehensive battery specification information; how various power auxiliaries effect the energy consumption, the charging implications for the batteries and the costs involved. It also highlights specific features of the AFV’s such as regenerative braking and CO2 emissions; multiple avenues are explored when it comes to AFV emissions.
