‘E-bikes could slash transport emissions by 50% and get Britons back to work’

In the post-coronavirus era, e-bikes could offer a safe way for people to travel and could reduce transport poverty, according to new research

E-bikes could cut carbon dioxide emissions in the UK by up to 50% eliminating about 30 million tonnes per year.

That's according to new research conducted by the Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS) which found that e-bikes, if used to replace car travel, could offer a safe and sustainable route back to work.

University of Leeds researchers suggest even replacing just 20% of car miles travelled with e-bike travel would mean four to eight million fewer tonnes of carbon dioxide emitted each year.
