    Science & Technology Key for Better Indoor Air Quality

    To keep our minds sharp and our bodies healthy, we need to breathe in approximately 18kg of air a day. This is a lot of air, especially when you consider that we eat just 1.3kg of food and drink 1.4kg of water per day. A large proportion of this air is consumed within buildings that we live, work and sleep in, in fact, a report from the European Commission indicates that Europeans now spend up to 90% of their time inside.

As part of the strategic partnership between the Automobile Association and Chargemaster, which is now part of BP, all 4,000 or so AA inspected hotels and B&Bs are being offered the opportunity to have electric vehicle charging points installed at no cost and integrated into the UK's largest public network.

eVolt UK has installed the latest versions of its rapid charging units, being deployed into the first and largest purpose-built charging hub in the UK that includes both solar power and energy storage.

A truck with a combustion engine powered entirely from zero carbon hydrogen fuel will take to the roads later this year. Developed by Liverpool based hydrogen fuel pioneer ULEMCo, the converted VOLVO FH16 lorry is designed to provide a demonstration of how hydrogen fuel can be deployed to decarbonise heavy goods vehicles efficiently and cost effectively.

Hurtigruten's new hybrid expedition ship MS Roald Amundsen has touched water for the first time during a launching ceremony at the Kleven Yard in Ulsteinvik, Norway. The vessel features new hybrid technology that will reduce fuel consumption and show the world that hybrid propulsion on large ships is possible.

Successfully managing the electric grid impact of the rapid growth of electric vehicles, anticipated in the UK, has come a step closer with the announcement of a £9.8 million Government funded Vehicle-to-Grid demonstrator project, led by Nissan and including energy firms and academia - which offers incentives to fleet and private owners.

A project combining Ordnance Survey (OS) geospatial data with real-time air quality data from EarthSense Systems is set to highlight clean cycle routes in Britain's cities.
