Electric-hybrid engines to clean up Venetian transport

Electric-hybrid engines to clean up Venetian transport
Engineers from the University of Southampton are helping to develop an electric-hybrid engine for Venice water taxis this summer to provide cleaner, greener transport. Venice, a UNESCO World Heritage city, has approximately 20,000 leisure craft and 550 taxi boats serving some 32m visitors every year. All are currently diesel-powered meaning Venice suffers from high levels of air and noise pollution which affects the water, architecture and health of both residents and tourists alike.

Study shows metering's immediate effect on water use habits

University of Southampton research has shown consumers reduce their water consumption by 16.5% after they receive a metered connection – based on the study of a five-year programme to install nearly half a million water meters in the south-east of England. This reduction is far more than the national average of 10% and is typically achieved very quickly after a meter is installed.
