Energy Cultures researcher Barry Barton has recently been interviewed by Stuff.co.nz on his project report with Peter Schuette, which looks at how to get more Kiwis into electric vehicles. http://www.stuff.co.nz/motoring/news/77605607/feebate-could-hit-gas-guzzlers-and-encourage-electric-vehicle-use-report.
As part of the Energy Cultures Project, Barry Barton energy and environment law expert from Waikato University led a comparative study with countries that have a high uptake of EVs, including Germany, the US and Norway. The study has analysed the incentives available overseas which lower the price of electric vehicles. There are
The merits of Energy Cultures 2 researcher Barry Barton’s recent report ‘Electric Vehicle Policy: New Zealand in a Comparative Context‘ in which he argues that to encourage the uptake of electric vehicles, the government should consider a feebate scheme to apply to the whole fleet when first registered in New Zealands has been discussed in Autotalk
Sustainable development is vital for our society. The energy sector plays an important role in the transition from the oil-based era to renewable alternatives, and for restructuring fuel patterns for power generation. This involves generating and using new energy technologies, and reforming energy supply and demand that underpins the structure and growth of the whole
Over the past two years there has been a growing interest in the role that Electric Vehicles (EVs) may play in driving a sustainable transport system for NZ. Their potential to help achieve emissions reductions and greater energy security, along with improved productivity from cheaper running costs, mean that EVs have become central to any discussions
Applications are invited for the 2015 OERC seed research grant (up to $2500). The primary aim of this grant is to provide seed funding for a research project that may subsequently be developed for a funding application and/or into a research paper targeted at an international peer reviewed journal. Strong preference will be given multidisciplinary
