Energy and Sustainable Transport: Funding

Keynes Electric Vehicles Project secured a £120,000 SEEDA grant to develop user engagement with this local low carbon vehicle initiative. For further details, please visit the Low Carbon Vehicles & Innovation in Transport Systems and Services blog.

As part of the £7M MK:SMART project, the OU has a £150,000 package to explore the use of IT systems to support advanced sustainable transport developments.

The OU is contributing towards the E.ON's Thinking Energy smart homes trial in Milton Keynes, which includes exploring the use of electric vehicles as part of a package of domestic energy measures.

The overall objective of the GAMBAS project is the development of an innovative and adaptive middleware to enable the privacy-preserving and automated utilization of behaviour-driven services that adapt autonomously to the context of users. This work has prototypical application in the domain of public transport. For further information on this project, please contact Professor Gerd Kortuem.
