EIL Electrify Cuba

UCL Electrochemical Innovation Lab (EIL) Professors Dan Brett and Paul Shearing have run a British Council sponsored workshop on the future of transport in Cuba, hosted at CUJAE Havana, the Cuban technical university. Cuba’s ageing transport fleet creates significant issues with urban air quality, whilst availability of gasoline also poses a threat to the sustainability of urban transport. The workshop, held over 3 days, brought together researchers from Cuba’s leading universities and research labs to formulate research questions in response to Cuba’s sustainable transport challenges, and to explore opportunities in the context of the UK’s Global Challenges Research Fund
