CIE Award

The CIE Award this year went to Eur Ing Vince Ludlow, for his paper entitled "Personal Motorised Transport Post 2040: Only for the Wealthy?", which considered technical as well as socio-ecconomic factors of the change to electric vehicles.  Currently there are few charging facilities for electric car drivers, and the ones that are available offer a choice of several different socket types and payment options, necessitating the driver having to carry a variety of plugs!  Many charging facilities are out of action at any time, and access to personal charging at home will be an issue for many homes without garages/drives with a feasible electric supply.  There will also be issues to address regarding power availability for charging, since the National Grid is working near to capacity at present.

Slides from the lecture, and the original paper submitted are downloadable below.
