  • Save the Greys! Local community bids to purchase famous Brighton music venue

    04 December 2017

    Pub-goers have launched a bid to take over one of the country’s best-known and loved live music venues - The Greys in Brighton has been put on the market by Ei Group after the industry giant failed to find the pub a permanent tenant.

    Brighton & Hove Council has declared the pub an Asset of Community Value, and now local residents in the Hanover area of the city have banded together as Friends of the Greys to purchase the freehold and secure its survival.

    Performers at the Greys over the last 30 years have included Damien Rice, Georgie Fame, Martin Carthy, Shirley Collins, ...

  • Ricardo awarded key heavy-duty zero-emissions vehicle project by CARB

    24 October 2017

    Ricardo Strategic Consulting has been selected by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to monitor, collect, and analyze the data for heavy-duty vehicle projects funded under Air Quality Improvement Program and the low carbon transportation Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund.

    The Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) and Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) are initiatives of CARB, and have seen significant investments since their inception in fiscal year 2014-15. A wide range of advanced technology demonstration projects have been carried out under these initiatives, all aimed at helping to pull forward Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) technology in the commercial vehicle and bus transportation ...

  • Ricardo to present innovative approach to marine propulsion design at ISME, Tokyo

    12 October 2017

    At the International Symposium on Marine Engine (ISME) to be hosted in Tokyo on 15-19 October, Ricardo will demonstrate how simulation and optimization technologies originally developed in the automotive sector can be used extremely effectively in the design of future low cost, low emission marine propulsion systems.

    The paper to be presented by Ricardo sets out the results of a study carried out by the company’s marine propulsion experts, in which some of Ricardo’s state-of-the-art computer aided engineering software was used to evaluate the environmental and commercial performance of different marine propulsion system architectures under a range of different usage scenarios. ...

  • Nanoparticles: how small must we measure?

    20 March 2017

    Improving urban air quality is the major impetus for a continuing push towards monitoring and regulating particle emissions. Now attention is extending to include particles significantly below the threshold of current regulation, approaching the molecular range – and Ricardo is spearheading some of the latest research in this area as well as helping industry comply with existing and future regulation.

    In the continuing endeavour to control harmful emissions from motor vehicles, the measurement of particle numbers (PN) is now firmly a part of the European regulatory framework. The introduction of PN standards followed the pioneering work carried out by Ricardo ...

  • Ricardo launches real-world vehicle emissions monitoring service

    20 March 2017
    • Accurate measurement of the emissions of passing vehicles
    • Linked to automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras for individual vehicle identification
    • Data can be used to inform Clean Air Zone and Low Emissions Zone design and policy
    • Highlights the most polluting of vehicles at a given highway location based on actual usage

    Vehicle emissions are the primary cause of air quality standard exceedances in the majority of UK Air Quality Management Areas. Increasing pressure to reduce the impact of pollution from vehicles has led to growing interest in the introduction of ‘Clean Air Zones’ and ‘Low Emission Zones’. However, such mitigation measures are expensive to ...
