Martin Garratt, CEO at Cambridge Cleantech comments: "We are delighted that the Brunel Motorcycle Team are able to demonstrate their latest clean technology. Low carbon transport design is a major part of thinking for the smart cities of the future and the electric motorcycle will show that it can be fun too."

The Brunel Motorcycle Team is from Brunel University in West London and is led by Dr Koen Matths who is responsible for the overall running of the team and is chief designer. Koen has an electro-mechanical engineering background and is a Lecturer in the School of Engineering and Design at Brunel University. His experience is in engineering design, mechatronics, materials and manufacturing. As part of his current research portfolio, Koen is partnering with the composites, racing and aerospace industry to contribute to low carbon transport design innovations in general and to sustainable motorsport design solutions in specific. Koen is an experienced motorcycle road rider with track experience and is able to translate the rider feedback to the design engineering team.

At the Conference, there will also be a fascinating session on the new technologies for the smart cities of the future and an outlook on international opportunities in the cleantech sector, before finishing with match-making between our cleantech innovators and the innovation hungry corporates, Xylem and Johnson Matthey.
