Life in 2030 New Zealand Will Include More Public Transport, Electric Bicycles
Electric-bicycle carts for our shopping and sail-assisted cargo ships for our exports are examples of transport innovations needed for New Zealand to survive a looming oil supply squeeze.
Dwindling supplies by 2030 will put pressure on indigenous transport energy sources - notably hydro-electricity, wind power and biofuels - to keep us moving.
Liquid fossil fuels will be increasingly reserved for high-priority uses such as wholesale food distribution, meaning a greater reliance on public transport for longer urban trips and "personal mobility" vehicles such as battery-powered Segways, bikes or small electric cars for neighbourhood errands.
