The Institute for
Carbon and Energy Reduction in Transport
The Institute for Carbon and Energy Reduction in Transport (ICERT) was established in 2008, running until 2013. The following page is an archived resource.
Researchers examined the effectiveness of various technical solutions in cutting the greenhouse gases emitted by cars and other road transport. Their aim was to understand what is needed for the implementation of practical low carbon transport.
Operating at the interface of Engineering Science and Social Science, ICERT used a whole-systems approach to create new transport technologies. Their philosophy was that for any low-carbon transport model to be truly useful it must take account of the interactions between technology and society and the complexity of interactions that need to be understood.
ICERT invented new technologies and approaches and advised governments and industry in order to increase the rate and effectiveness of carbon reduction.
ICERT was an interdisciplinary research programme that examined the effectiveness of various technical solutions in cutting the greenhouse gases emitted by cars and other road transport. They sought to understand what is needed for the implementation of practical low carbon transport. The Institute was led by Co- Directors, Dr Malcolm McCulloch and Professor David Banister both of whom are now Oxford Martin Experts and continue to contribute their advice and research insights to the Oxford Martin School's work on global future challenges.
