star this property answer text <p>The Government’s vision is to have one of the best electric vehicle infrastructure networks in the world, growing a network for current and prospective electric vehicle drivers that is affordable, reliable, accessible and secure. The Road to Zero strategy published last year includes new commitments to expand significantly electric and low emission vehicle infrastructure across the country. Government funding and leadership, alongside private sector investment has supported the installation of more than 20,000 public chargepoints. This includes over 2,000 rapid chargepoints - one of the largest networks in Europe. Our grant schemes and our £400m public-private Charging Infrastructure Investment Fund will see thousands more electric vehicle chargepoints installed across the UK. Highways England has committed £15m to ensure there are chargepoints (rapid where possible) every 20 miles on 95% of the Strategic Road Network by 2020. The Prime Minister has asked the Office for Low Emission Vehicles to work with industry to set out a vision by Autumn 2019, for a core infrastructure network of rapid and high powered chargepoints along England’s key road network.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are investing nearly £1.5bn‎ between April 2015 and March 2021 to support the market for Ultra Low Emission cars, vans, HGVs, taxis and motorcycles, and schemes to support charge point infrastructure at homes and workplaces, and on residential streets. This funding also includes grants for research to support the development and deployment of ultra low emission technologies. Government grants for plug-in vehicles will be available until at least 2020, reducing the upfront purchase price of electric vehicles We stated in our Road to Zero strategy that consumer incentives in some form will continue to play a role beyond 2020.Purchasers of ultra-low emission vehicles also receive other benefits, including: lower tax rates, and grants towards the installation of chargepoints. HMT recently announced plans to accelerate the shift to zero emission cars by removing company car tax in 2020-21, 1% in 2021-22 before returning to the planned 2% rate in 2022-23 – a significant tax saving for employees and employers. A number of local authorities also provide additional incentives such as free parking or exemption from the congestion charge. We have also supported the uptake of ultra low emission buses through the Ultra Low Emission Bus Scheme.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government has plans to have high quality infrastructure to support economic growth and prosperity across all regions of the UK. The UK is well placed to be a global leader in hydrogen and fuel cell powered transportation due to our high-quality engineering and manufacturing capability in relevant supply chains. We will support the development of the infrastructure for hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles, recognising that the market is at an early stage of development. We are doing this through initiatives such as the £23m Hydrogen for Transport programme, which will increase the uptake of fuel cell electric vehicles and expand hydrogen refuelling infrastructure.</p><p> </p><p>The Government set out its view on the relative environmental performance of different fuels in the Road to Zero Strategy. This was based on an independently verified assessment of the fuels and technologies available to consumers, with consideration given to both greenhouse gas and air-pollutant emissions over the period to 2050. This analysis suggests that hydrogen fuel cell technology could have a role in supporting the transition to zero emission transport alongside battery electric technology. In the long term, hydrogen may be more suited for use in HGVs and by fleets where range and fast refuelling are key concerns.</p>

star this property answer text <p>On 27 June, a new, legally binding target to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 came into force. This will require ambitious action across the economy building on our Clean Growth Strategy. Whether it is through our global offshore wind industry, our leadership on green finance, or our unrivalled research base leading the charge on electric vehicles, we are showing the economic benefits of how cutting emissions can help to grow our economy.</p><p> </p><p>In the power sector, this will mean significant expansion in low carbon electricity generation, with important roles for renewables, carbon capture usage and storage, and nuclear power. We are already taking action to deliver this through the offshore wind sector deal, a commitment to bi-annual allocation of Contracts for Difference for renewable electricity generation with the third allocation round launched on 29 May, the nuclear sector deal, our review of the viability of a Regulated Asset Base (RAB) funding model for new nuclear power stations, and the CCUS action plan. The planned Energy White Paper will set out more detail on the policy framework that supports our ambitions.</p>

star this property answer text <p>On 28th November 2018, the Government laid before Parliament the document entitled, “EU Exit: Long-term economic analysis” which was intended to facilitate parliamentary scrutiny ahead of the Meaningful Vote on the final deal. The purpose of this analysis was to illustrate high level impacts on the UK from different EU Exit scenarios. It included associated costs for five broad sector groups across the economy, including manufactured goods, which together cover the majority of the UK economy and all traded goods and services.</p><p>We understand the impact that continued uncertainty has on firms and the disruption in the event of no deal and continue to discuss the situation with manufacturers and industry bodies, including Make UK. We are also aware that factories are stockpiling essential parts to try to minimise disruption in a no deal scenario, and we acknowledge that this has an impact on costs. The best way to deliver the certainty that our manufacturers need is to agree a deal that delivers on our commitment to leaving the European Union.</p><p>The Government is committed to leaving the European Union in a way that underpins prosperity and avoids unnecessary disruption for people and businesses across the UK and therefore has been preparing to minimise any disruption in the event of no deal. Since the extension was agreed, departments have advanced their no deal preparations so that we are ready to implement necessary work in the lead-up to 31 October if needed.</p><p>HMRC has written three times to over 145,000 VAT-registered UK businesses who currently trade only with the EU, setting out the actions they need to take, and the changes they need to be prepared for in the event of no deal.</p><p>We have advised hundreds of ports, traders, pharmaceutical firms and other organisations that use the borders about potential disruption, so that they can engage proactively with their supply chains. We have published a leaflet for SMEs, that contains advice on actions to take, provides sources of support, and outlines the changes that may affect businesses when the UK leaves the EU.</p><p>The Government recognises that the manufacturing sector remains a vital contributor to the economy of the UK, driving innovation, exports, job creation, and productivity growth and we are committed to supporting the sector as the UK exits Europe. Through our modern Industrial Strategy and Made Smarter – our key national industrial digitalisation programme – we are building an economy fit for the future. As the 9th largest global manufacturing economy, we are, and will continue to be, a major manufacturing nation.</p>
