The long-awaited Transport Decarbonisation Plan is to be published today (14 July), with key focuses being smart charging and phasing out the sale of petrol and diesel heavy goods vehicles (HGVs).
The Department for Transport (DfT) has partnered with national disability charity Motability for the development of new accessibility standards for electric vehicle (EV) charging.
The government has a “mountain to climb” to reach its goals of phasing out new petrol and diesel cars by 2030 and for all new cars to be zero-emission by 2035.
SSE have called for mandatory switching of fleets to electric by 2030 in a letter to the Department for Transport (DfT).
The government has unveiled £12 million in funding for electric vehicle (EV) research and development (R&D) alongside plans to support the switch to electric vans.
A new government fund is to help pay for connection costs to enable the installation of high-powered charging (HPC) at motorway sites across England.
Emissions reductions 'need to start being delivered', DfT says as it outlines decarbonisation priorities
The government has outlined its priorities for its Transport Decarbonisation Plan, slated for publication in Autumn 2020.
The government is looking into making information on all public chargepoints openly available in a standard format for the first time, it says.
Transport minister George Freeman has confirmed the Department for Transport's (DfT) intent to consult on the ICE ban date, stating he would like to be able to bring "tangible" measures to COP26.
