star this property answer text <p>We want an increasing proportion of the electricity used at electric vehicle charging points to be from renewable and low carbon sources. We are taking steps to facilitate this by cleaning up the UK’s power generation and increasing the amount of renewable generation and ensuring electric vehicles play a helpful role in our future smart and flexible energy system.</p><p> </p><p>The Clean Growth Strategy sets out steps the Government is taking to further decarbonise the power sector and the wider economy. Between now and 2050, the Government projects electricity grid emissions will continue to fall with increasing levels of low carbon and distributed renewable generation. To enable these changes in generation, the system is adapting to become more flexible and smarter in order to better manage the new flows in power. Electric vehicles have an important role to play in this transition – offering new opportunities for consumers and the power system. Smart charging will allow charging to happen at times when more renewable energy is available. The department plans to consult on smart chargepoint requirements shortly.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>In 2018 the UK was the second largest market for ultra-low emission vehicles and the fourth largest market for battery electric vehicles. The UK is also global leader in the development and manufacture of electric vehicles; in 2018 a fifth of battery electric cars sold in Europe were made in the UK. So far in 2019, sales of battery electric vehicles have increased significantly, up by 54% over the same period in 2018. Our Road to Zero Strategy sets out a clear pathway to zero emissions, to give clarity and certainty to both industry and motorists.</p><p> </p> more like this

Since then, overall sales of alternatively fuelled vehicles have increased compared to the same period last year. While the sales of zero emission capable plug-in hybrids have decreased since the grant was reviewed, the sales of the cleanest zero emission vehicles have increased by over 50 per cent over the same period.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s vision is to have one of the best electric vehicle infrastructure networks in the world but has not set targets for the number of chargepoints. We want to encourage and leverage private sector investment to build and operate a self-sustaining public network supported by the right policy framework. In many cases, the market is better-placed than the Government to identify the right locations for chargepoints and it is essential that viable commercial models are in place to ensure continued maintenance and improvements to the network. Highways England has a commitment of £15m to ensure there are chargepoints (rapid where possible) every 20 miles on 95% of the Strategic Road Network by 2020. The Government’s grant schemes to support chargepoint infrastructure at homes, workplaces and residential streets, alongside our £400m public-private Charging Infrastructure Investment Fund will see thousands more chargepoints installed across the UK.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is technology neutral, but recognises that the vast majority of vehicle manufacturer plans include plug-in battery powertrains. As set out in the Road to Zero strategy, the Government is also playing a role in supporting the development of the UK’s hydrogen refuelling network.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) recommended in its 2018 progress report that the UK should be aiming for 60% new ultra low emission vehicle uptake in 2030. This is consistent, in terms of carbon, with the ambitions set out in the Government’s 2018 Road to Zero strategy of up to 70% of new car sales to be ultra low emission by 2030 alongside up to 40% of new vans. By 2040, we expect the majority of new cars and vans sold to be 100% zero emission and all new cars and vans to have significant zero emission capability. By 2050 we want almost every car and van in the UK to be zero emission.</p><p> </p><p>Subsequently, the CCC report, published in May 2019, recommended the UK legislate as soon as possible to meet net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050; and that by 2035 at the latest all new cars and vans should be electric (or use a low carbon alternative such as hydrogen). The Government will respond to the CCC’s advice in a timeframe which reflects the urgency of this crucial issue.</p><p> </p>

The freight operating companies will be able to apply for these additional paths in accordance with normal railway industry processes. The freight operators are independent commercial companies and the types of cargo, the tonnages and the routes will depend upon the demand that exists from their customers at that time. Any increase in the number of freight trains that results in a reduction in freight moved by road is likely to lead to a reduction in air pollution and greenhouse gases emissions.</p> more like this
