While most of the focus on meeting "EU" targets has been on the generation side of power we shouldn't forget that transport and heat weigh heavily in that equation.  These are often seen as lagging behind generation but it is good to see some positive moves and talk about transport.

The call to avoid contracts for cities is understandable as the bigger companies do not have a requirement (at this stage) to convert their fleet or deploy new vehicles using alternative fuel but those companies are also looking at hybrid buses.

The Big Lemon Bus Company is also looking to raise funds in partnership with Brighton Energy Co-op to deploy two solar powered buses in and around Brighton - see tweets down the side for more info.  Not only is this a lovely example of low carbon transport but also shows how communities can get involved in projects which are not just generation focussed.
