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.
