The Royal Automobile Club Foundation for Motoring (RAC Foundation) and UK Petroleum Industry Association (UKPIA) have just published a report by Ricardo-AEA on the future of low-carbon cars and fuels. The report describes how industry consensus and market projections suggest that there will not be a single, dominant technology or fuel going forward in the way that there has been over the last century (i.e. with the monopoly of the internal-combustion engine). Instead, there will be a range of solutions for different transport applications.
