    Development of the Peugeot 308 R HYbrid was entrusted to Peugeot Sport. They were challenged to developing an efficient petrol hybrid plug-in powertrain, integrating it into the EMP platform and setting new limits in terms of performance. The result is on a par with that challenge: quite simply astounding. Developing 500 hp with four-wheel drive, Peugeot 308 R HYbrid has its speed limited electronically at 250 km/h, going from 0 to 100 km/h is 4.0 seconds, and covering 1000 m from a standing start in 22.0 seconds. In spite of all that, CO2 emissions are just 70 g/km. It is perfectly balanced, with 60% of its weight to the front and 40% to the rear.

  • Public Lecture 2018_January_Malcolm Brown

    What is the role of oil and gas in future energy supplies? Abstract: Future forecasts of world energy demands show a growth of 30% by 2035, driven by population growth of 1.5bn people This growth in demand is driven by economic growth in China, India and in other developing countries. One of the biggest growth areas is car travel, predicted to double to 1.8bn cars. Forecasts from different sources suggest fossil fuels may still provide up to 80% of world energy supply in 2040. Others challenge those figures, suggesting the growth of renewables is continually under-estimated. Keeping pace with demand is less of an issue than that of the CO2 associated with it. To stay on course for the Paris Agreement of ‘well below 2 degrees C’ requires a major reduction in fossil fuel use. In the U...

Pressure to reduce carbon emissions is putting the future of fossil fuel giants in jeopardy. Their survival plans involve carbon storage and floating wind farms. Meanwhile, one small German village is showing how large companies aren't always essential. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Over 80% of the world's energy needs are provided by coal, oil and gas. Although technologies to extract fossil fuels may have changed over the decades, the core products themselves have never been challenged. Until now. Pressure to reduce carbon emissions is putting the future of fossil fuel giants in jeopardy. Encouraging the growth of alternative methods to generate and distribute power. In just eight years, the value of the world's biggest power companies has halved. Leaving industry giants scrambling to redefine their role in this new energy world. Across the world, old industries are facing disruption on an unprecedented scale. The pressure to adapt has never been greater. Known as the Paris Accord, 195 countries agreed to a legally binding climate deal to reduce carbon emissions. This 5 trillion dollar industry may be facing a seismic shift but that doesn't mean it's ready to ditch the dirty fossil fuels that made it rich. Instead, many companies are banking on new methods to clean up an old process. Norwegian oil and gas giant, Statoil, struck it rich in the North Sea in the late 1960s. Over four decades later, at its Sleipner gas rig, the company is attempting to make fossil fuel production cleaner. Statoil's business still relies on the harmful burning of fossil fuels by its customers but at least the company is trying to reduce its own carbon footprint. It's transformed some of its offshore rigs with technology that enables engineers to separate the carbon dioxide and pump it underground. Statoil's Sleipner gas rig is the world's first offshore carbon capture storage plant. Each year, Statoil stores 1 million tonnes of CO2 making extraction less carbon intensive. They believe that prioritising gas over more harmful fossil fuels will further reduce global warming and keep them relevant for decades to come. Wind and solar are cleaner but depend on subsidies. To take on the consistency of fossil fuels they face a huge challenge - The unpredictable weather. In Bavaria, a tiny village has used those subsidies to take up the challenge. This community believes it's found a way to produce a steady energy supply just from renewable sources, raising the real prospect of a future free from fossil fuels. Norbert and Kristina Bechteler's family farm has been providing the local community with dairy products for over 200 years but they now have a new income from solar energy. Producing your own energy with solar panels isn't revolutionary but in this village, they're combining solar with other renewables in an attempt to achieve the Holy Grail of a steady energy supply. And they're prepared to use anything to do it. The Deputy Mayor has helped drive the village's pioneering efforts to make renewable energy a realistic option. There's one renewable that never disappears as it can be sourced from the decay of virtually any organic matter and it's called biogas. Of the four biogas plants in the village, Farmer Einsiedler runs the largest. Combining these different sources has been so successful the village now generates five times more energy than it needs. But that is just part of the challenge of turning renewables into a credible energy supply. The Disrupters is an original series exploring how major industries – from music and cars to hospitality – are currently being disrupted by the latest wave of digital innovation. As well as enjoying privileged access into the world biggest tech start ups we show how industry giants respond when faced with such tech-driven innovation - do they adapt - or die?

So does Leonardo DiCaprio. And many others. The argument goes like this: Regular cars run on gasoline, a fossil fuel that pumps CO2 straight out of the tailpipe and into the atmosphere. Electric cars run on electricity. They don’t burn any gasoline at all. No gas; no CO2. In fact, electric cars are often advertised as creating “zero emissions.” But do they really? Let’s take a closer look. First, there’s the energy needed to produce the car. More than a third of the lifetime carbon-dioxide emissions from an electric car comes from the energy used make the car itself, especially the battery. The mining of lithium, for instance, is not a green activity. When an electric car rolls off the production line, it’s already been responsible for more than 25,000 pounds of carbon-dioxide emission. The amount for making a conventional car: just 16,000 pounds. But that’s not the end of the CO2 emissions. Because while it’s true that electric cars don’t run on gasoline, they do run on electricity, which, in the U.S. is often produced by another fossil fuel -- coal. As green venture capitalist Vinod Khosla likes to point out, "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." The most popular electric car, the Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime will emit 31 metric tons of CO2, based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption at average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit just 3 tons more across its production, diesel consumption and ultimate scrapping. The results are similar for a top-line Tesla, the king of electric cars. It emits about 44 tons, which is only 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro. So throughout the full life of an electric car, it will emit just three to five tons less CO2. In Europe, on its European Trading System, it currently costs $7 to cut one ton of CO2. So the entire climate benefit of an electric car is about $35. Yet the U.S. federal government essentially provides electric car buyers with a subsidy of up to $7,500. Paying $7,500 for something you could get for $35 is a very poor deal. And that doesn’t include the billions more in federal and state grants, loans and tax write-offs that go directly to battery and electric-car makers The other main benefit from electric cars is supposed to be lower pollution. But remember Vinod Khosla’s observation "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." Yes, it might be powered by coal, proponents will say, but unlike the regular car, coal plant emissions are far away from the city centers where most people live and where damage from air pollution is greatest. However, new research in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that while gasoline cars pollute closer to home, coal-fired power actually pollutes more -- a lot more.

Development of the Peugeot 308 R HYbrid was entrusted to Peugeot Sport. They were challenged to developing an efficient petrol hybrid plug-in powertrain, integrating it into the EMP platform and setting new limits in terms of performance. The result is on a par with that challenge: quite simply astounding. Developing 500 hp with four-wheel drive, Peugeot 308 R HYbrid has its speed limited electronically at 250 km/h, going from 0 to 100 km/h is 4.0 seconds, and covering 1000 m from a standing start in 22.0 seconds. In spite of all that, CO2 emissions are just 70 g/km. It is perfectly balanced, with 60% of its weight to the front and 40% to the rear. Peugeot 308 R HYbrid has a fiery spirit but an incredible weight/power ratio, barely reaching 3.1 kg/hp. If we were able to reach this kind of performance on a segment C vehicle, it is all down to our passion for a challenge and our desire for excellence. Peugeot 308 R HYbrid is part of a very select club of cars reaching 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds. For impeccable dynamic handling, the car’s weight has been recentred and placed as low as possible. The Lithium-Ion 3 kWh battery has an excellent ratio between power and size, and has been placed under the rear seats in place of the fuel tank. In turn, the 50 L fuel tank has been placed in the boot above the rear electric motor and the two transformers. In their quest for perfection, the Peugeot Sport engineers have completely redesigned the bottom of the fuel tank so that it sits tightly up against the technical components. The few millimetres thus gained on the vehicle height contribute to its performance. The toggle button on the central console is used to select one of the four driving modes: - Hot Lap mode is the most powerful, harnessing the full potential from the three power sources to reach a total of 500 hp and maximum torque of 730 Nm. - Track mode delivers 400 hp and 530 Nm, mainly from the petrol engine and the rear electric motor. The front electric motor serves as an additional booster when accelerating. - Road mode is specially designed for road use with power of 300 hp and torque of 400 Nm. The petrol engine delivers its full potential while the rear electric motor helps during accelerations. The front electric motor is not used in this mode. -  ZEV makes priority use of the rear electric motor to drive the Peugeot 308 R HYbrid. The front electric motor comes into play, depending on the pressure applied by the driver on the accelerator pedal. Thanks to the all-wheel drive system, the handling of Peugeot 308 R HYbrid is pretty formidable, especially coming out of the bends. The braking system is on a par with the car's performance with 380 mm ventilated discs at the front, gripped by four pistons, and 290 mm discs to the rear. However, they are not used every time the brakes are applied, because Peugeot Sport has designed the powertrain to decelerate using the electric motors throughout the full speed range, starting at 250 km/h. Not only does this preserve the discs and pads, but this regenerative braking system is also one of the three ways of recharging the battery.

Since US President Donald Trump entered the White House, there is one achievement he can’t be denied. He has made good on a campaign promise to deconstruct the administrative state, and his administration has delayed or eliminated hundreds of “job killing” federal rules, often following recommendations from powerful industries. On March 13, the White House released its first preliminary budget under the Trump administration. Entitled A New Foundation for American Greatness, the most notable changes were severe cuts and regulatory rollbacks to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The budget cuts stand at a 31 percent decrease, led by Scott Pruitt, Oklahoma's former attorney general and the EPA's new chief. Pruitt's relationship with the EPA has included repeated attempts to sue the agency for items of environmental protection put in place under the Obama administration. The items challenged by Pruitt include the EPA's carbon emissions standards for new power plants, the clean power plan designed to help curb climate change and debating limits on cross-state air pollution. Since, under Pruitt's patronage, the EPA has reversed a proposed ban on a pesticide linked to autism and developmental delays in children, reconsidered rules on coal ash disposal, and repealed the Obama administration’s signature plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The US has also pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement, essentially breaching the promise to curb planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions. Betsy Southerland was a senior official at the EPA's Office of Water for 30 years. When the Trump administration decided to roll back regulations on coal waste pollution produced by energy companies, Southerland left the agency. Within weeks of vacating her position, Scott Pruitt announced he would consider repealing a rule Southerland's team had enforced, regarding wastewater discharges from power plants. Pruitt attributed the repeal to job loss and economic impact. "I dont know why he said that because at that point... we had never briefed him once on the rule. We could have definitely shown him in great detail that there was not going to be any big job loss or any big economic impact," says Southerland. "[It's] heartbreaking because we know that that rule was so necessary to protect public health." In this episode of Fault Lines, we look beyond the smoke and the scandals, and travel to North Carolina and California's Central Valley, where communities have cautionary tales about what this rollback could cost. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Over the last two centuries, the growth of our modern global economy has been fundamentally based upon the exploitation of cheap fossil fuel-based energy. However, as climate science has highlighted, the combustion of fossil fuels and resulting greenhouse gas emissions now pose an existential threat to our environment, and indeed, the very future of human society. Anthropogenic climate change is now underway, evident in a warming world, increasingly intense droughts and floods, sea-level rise and ocean acidification. While politicians and business obfuscate over the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the latest climate science emphasises our window of opportunity in avoiding catastrophe is closing. To avoid dangerous climate change, scientists have demonstrated that the vast majority of known fossil-fuel reserves must be left in the ground. In response, new social movements have emerged aiming to reduce humanity’s addiction to coal, oil and gas. Technological developments in renewable energy also offer the potential to fundamentally disrupt the fossil fuel economy. In this special Sydney Ideas event, a panel of leading thinkers will address the issue of the future of fossil fuels in a climate challenged world. CHRIS WRIGHT (Chair) is Professor of Organisational Studies and leader of the Balanced Enterprise Research Network at the University of Sydney Business School. His current research explores organizational and societal responses to anthropogenic climate change, with particular reference to how managers and business organizations interpret and respond to climate change. He is the author of a wide range of publications including the forthcoming book Climate Change, Capitalism and Corporations: Processes of Creative Self-destruction (Cambridge University Press, 2015). BEN CALDECOTT is Director of the Stranded Assets programme at the Smith School of Enterprise and Environment at the University of Oxford and an Adviser to The Prince of WalesInternational Sustainability Unit. Ben has researched and published extensively on the topic of fossil fuels and their potential to become ‘stranded assets’ as the world moves to confront the issue of climate change. BLAIR PALESE is CEO of 350.org in Australia and has been at the frontline of moves here and overseas to encourage major superannuation funds, local governments, religious organisations and universities to divest from fossil fuel investments. In the space of a few short years, fossil fuel divestment has grown to become a major global movement which threatens the fossil fuel industry’s social licence to operate. GILES PARKINSON is founder and editor of Reneweconomy.com.au, Australia’s leading website on clean technology and climate issues. He is a former deputy editor of the Australian Financial Review and a columnist for The Australian. Giles will outline recent trends in renewable technology, particularly the increasing cost competitiveness of solar and wind energy in disrupting the fossil fuel economy.

Coal lobbyist Jeff Holmstead challenged for his attacks on clean air and climate change laws during Politico's Energy and the Presidency event. A Greenpeace activist interrupted the forum to point out that Holmstead's opinions are paid for by polluters like Duke Energy, Southern Company and Arch coal. Transcript below. TRANSCRIPT: "Mr. Holmstead, Southern Company and Duke Energy pay you to block those regulations. They pay you to block climate legislation. They don't want clean energy. You need to be reported as the coal lobbyist that you are. When you were in the George W. Bush EPA you blocked mercury controls on power plants for eight years. Eight years—do you know how many thousands of people may have died as a result of that decision, Mr. Holmstead? You need to be held accountable for that. You need to be held accountable as a lobbyist for coal interests." www.polluterwatch.com/jeffrey-holmstead www./polluterwatch.com/blog/jeffrey-holmstead-coal-industrys-mercury-lobbyist-report

THE CHALLENGE Vehicle emissions create air pollution, which affects the health of the local community. ERS Medical runs the fleet for Barts Health NHS Trust and wanted to reduce their contribution to local air pollution so Global Action Plan (GAP) created Cleaner Fleets, Healthier Streets to tackle the problem. The initiative was part of the Barts Health Cleaner Air for East London Project. HOW WE HELPED The progamme aimed to get ERS Medical drivers to take three driving tips on board: BE A SMOOTH OPERATOR – anticipate the road ahead to avoid unneccessary braking and cornering. TAKE YOUR TIME – gentle acceleration, lower RPM and steady speeds. DON’T BE AN IDLER – don't leave the engine on when the vehicle is stationary. But how do you encourage professional drivers to change the way they drive when they've been doing things this way for years? Entice them with games and competition! We held two Cleaner Air Action Days which challenged ERS Medical team members to compete for the title of most efficient driver and gain poll position on our EcoDriving Simulator leader board. We also created messages that especially appealed to the drivers. Many of the ERS Medical drivers live and work in East London and our surveys showed that ¼ of drivers and their families suffered from asthma, which is caused and worsened by air pollution. So when we talked to them, we explained the link between air pollution and ill-health and showed them how changing their driving habits could help improve air quality in their local community. Drivers were enthused by the day with many pledging to a new social norm of helping to ‘Drive Down Pollution in East London.' Their commitment was captured with posters which are dotted around the depot. As they take to the road each day, branded vehicle air fresherners and keyrings also remind them of the important role that they play in operating Cleaner Fleets to create Healthier Streets.

Eat less meat save the planet - right?? Not quite!! Complex issue and as I say all to frequently - Beware single issue environmentalism!! Explains how you shop and eat can potentially mitigate Climate Change. A comprehensive review of the impact of beef, cattle, methane and Climate Change. This in depth briefing raises challenges to all who have an interest in beef, livestock, land management or the environment. Farmers, livestock & food producers, consumers, land managers, soil scientists and policy makers should find issues for discussion. Intensive and extensive cattle rearing systems are compared and the apparent higher Climate Change impacts of the latter is explored. The validity of Kyoto/ IPCC greenhouse gas emissions calculations is challenged. The historic trends in cattle/ruminant numbers in UK and America are examined and found to be largely irrelevant. The underlying issue of soil management is identified as the significant factor. The deeper impact of nitrogen fertilisers is raised. For the consumer, overseas sourcing and how to reduce the energy cost of beef by 50% is explained -- along with other benefits including offsetting Climate Change. The natural carbon cycle & nitrogen cycle, and the critical function of grassland to offset global fossil fuel emissions is outlined. The importance of grazing cattle and their "waste" in maintaining and enhancing biodiversity and farmland birds is demonstrated. Contrary to reported trends, a 10 year analysis of the grassland soils reveals an increase in carbon sequestration that is significantly higher than generally accepted norms -- factors are discussed. Soil carbon (SOC) and soil organic matter (SOM) are explained and its critical function in enhancing soil fertility and increasing crop yields (20%?) explored -- indicating that there is a very large CO2 bill that is not currently being set against cereals and cattle feed. Grass or Pasture Fed livestock are found to have a significant impact on Climate Change, but concludes that the policy focus should be on an integrated approach to the carbon cycle and soil management. NB.Your inputs, or amendments, that would further discussion and increase the understanding of this complex, but important topic would be welcomed. The causes of Climate Change, the sources and global warming potential of greenhouse gases are explained in the briefing "Energy & Climate Change -- understanding the global drivers" Duration 56 mins The topic -- "Cattle Grassland, Carbon sequestration and soil fertility" commences at 24 mins -- briefing may be split at this point and remaining viewed subsequently.

What is the role of oil and gas in future energy supplies? Abstract: Future forecasts of world energy demands show a growth of 30% by 2035, driven by population growth of 1.5bn people This growth in demand is driven by economic growth in China, India and in other developing countries. One of the biggest growth areas is car travel, predicted to double to 1.8bn cars. Forecasts from different sources suggest fossil fuels may still provide up to 80% of world energy supply in 2040. Others challenge those figures, suggesting the growth of renewables is continually under-estimated. Keeping pace with demand is less of an issue than that of the CO2 associated with it. To stay on course for the Paris Agreement of ‘well below 2 degrees C’ requires a major reduction in fossil fuel use. In the UK, progress on emission reduction from 1990 to 2015 has been good. Replacement of coal power generation, initially by gas and latterly increased renewables has enabled the UK to lead the G7 nations performance. Unabated coal will be phased out entirely by 2025. Future alternatives include continued growth in wind and solar power, where costs have fallen considerably. Potentially tidal or small modular nuclear reactors are alternatives, though further research is required to prove these are cost competitive. Later targets in 2028-32 are more challenged and it should be remembered that these ‘80% below 1990 emissions’ targets were aimed at a 2 degrees C, not the more ambitious Paris target. There has been less progress in transportation, which accounts for ​24% of emissions (cars, aviation and shipping). Significant increases in electric vehicles (EVs) are expected, but forecasts vary. The UK government has said diesel and petrol cars will be phased out by 2040. Various car manufacturers plan to offer only hybrids much earlier than this and ING predicts Europe’s 290 million car fleet could be ‘all-electric by 2035’. The National Grid has scenarios which vary from 30% EVs to 100% in 2050, with potentially 18GW of additional power needed. This is 30% additional power, on top of today’s peak demand - how will this be generated? BP’s Energy Outlook however, suggests a more modest rise from ~2.5 million EVs worldwide in 2016 to 100 million by 2035, still less than 10% of a much larger car fleet. It’s clear that the introduction of EVs will be slower in markets with less infrastructure and increased efficiency of conventional engines will be key there. Does this affect UK offshore oil and gas production? In 2015 only 45% of the UK’s gas came from offshore and its’s natural decline through the 2030s probably fits well with the expected move from fossil fuels. The ideal scenario of using existing infrastructure for carbon capture and storage (CCS) however, seems challenged. The government plans to meet the 2050 targets do include however, some greenhouse gas removal technologies or ‘negative emissions’, which are yet to be developed. As geologists we are well accustomed to thinking about ranges, we are used to dealing with uncertainty. The talk, from a ‘non-expert’ in much of this subject will consider – from this array of predictions, what do we need to believe to accept either high or low scenarios and what are the indicators we may see along the way? Speaker: Malcolm Brown, President of the Geological Society After graduating from Kingston Polytechnic (1976), with a BSc in Geology, Malcolm worked in Libya and Saudi Arabia before completing an MSc in Petroleum Geology at Imperial College (1982). He worked at British Gas / BG Group for over 30 years as it evolved from state owned utility to successful international business and was Executive Vice President, Exploration. Malcolm became a Fellow in 1982, served on Council between 2009 and 2012 and became a Chartered Geologist in 2013. He took over as President of the Society in 2016. https://twitter.com/geolsoc #gsllecture https://www.geolsoc.org.uk/

Billabong has traditionally undertaken individual initiatives that, instinctively, are deemed to be beneficial for the environment. These may include support for environment groups, initiation or extension of recycling programs, reductions in the use of packaging materials or the greater use of more environment-friendly fabrics and fibres. In isolation, each project has absolute merit. However, the benefit of such projects and their contribution to the Company's impact on the environment is generally difficult to quantify. In 2006, the growing global awareness of climate change and the shared global understanding of the need to reduce emissions challenged that position. In response to this, Billabong implemented a number of initiatives designed to better understand and analyse climate change risk, measure emissions output and provide the Company with a benchmark from which future improvement could be demonstrated. Central to this was the compilation of the Group's annual carbon inventory (see Carbon footprint). The 2011 Global Conference for Social Change, an initiative of the Foundation for Social Change and the United Nations Office for Partnerships, has recognized Billabong as one of its Leaders of Change, an award that recognizes companies that are committed to the 'pursuit of sustainability whereby environmental and social performance are embedded in the competitive strategy of the firm or organization'. This Case Study provides a snapshot of Billabong's carbon footprinting activities, the challenges, benefits and... future. The University of Queensland SMART initiative is proud to partner with Billabong on such initiatives. Many thanks to JM for all your support.
