Guest Speaker


New Technology Training and Projects Manager, Tower Transit Operations Ltd

David Yorke
Alternative Energy Sources and Stored Power Challenges.
— David Yorke

David is involved with alternative energy sources, specifically hybrid power and hydrogen systems.

He is a Chartered Engineer and has spent the last 6 or so years developing environmentally friendly low emission power systems for our London buses. Over the last few years he has been lecturing around the world on this subject, as the UK is exporting this knowledge, most recently in Asia.

David is an expert in this area of technology and with the future demands globally. The likes of Tesla are using their stored power technology developed from their exotic sports cars in domestic home solutions, and off grid alternative energy solutions are very topical currently.

Whilst David works for a London based bus company his day to day work is about as far removed from driving a red double decker as you can get!
