star this property answer text <p>In December 2018, the Government published a green paper consultation on its new aviation strategy, Aviation 2050. The strategy proposes a comprehensive approach to tackling aviation’s carbon emissions, taking into account the UK’s domestic and international obligations to ensure that aviation contributes its fair share to action on climate change. The white paper will be published later this year and will take into account recent advice from the Committee on Climate Change.</p><p> </p><p>The Government supports a range of measures to achieve its 2050 vision of reducing aviation carbon emissions, including efficiency improvements in technology, operations and air traffic management, use of renewable fuels and market-based measures.</p><p> </p><p>Recently, the Government extended eligibility for rewards under the Renewable Transport Fuels Obligation (RTFO) to aviation fuels, and is making available up to £20 million of matched capital funding to projects that will produce low carbon waste-based fuels to be used for aviation and Heavy Goods Vehicles through the Future Fuels for Flight and Freight Competition (F4C).</p><p> </p><p>The UK was instrumental in reaching agreement on the global carbon offsetting measure for aviation (CORSIA) in 2016 and continues to be actively involved in negotiating for a scheme that is environmentally effective and robust. The green paper also states that the UK will encourage ICAO to agree a long term emissions reduction goal at its 41st Assembly in 2022.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises that it is vital that quick and easy payment is provided at rapid and high-powered chargers to make ad-hoc, longer journeys fast and hassle free. In 2017, the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Regulations included requirements that infrastructure operators had to provide ad-hoc access to public chargepoints and specified which types of connectors had to be provided as a minimum for normal and high powered chargepoints. Last year, the Government took further powers through in the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act (AEVA) to set a direction for the infrastructure market. The Act gives the Secretary of State for Transport powers to regulate technical standards of infrastructure to ensure easy compatibility with vehicles, to ensure availability of data on chargepoint locations and availability, and to require provision at motorway service areas and large fuel retailers. To improve customers’ experience of using chargepoints, the Government announced in July 2019 that it wants to see all new rapid and higher powered chargepoints provide debit or credit card payment by spring 2020. We expect the market to respond, and follow the lead of those chargepoint operators, including BP Chargemaster, the largest chargepoint operator in the UK, who have already made a commitment that they will now be providing this facility at their chargepoints. If there is insufficient progress we consider using the powers available in the Act.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to ensuring that more chargepoints are made available, which is why the £400m Chargepoint Infrastructure Investment Fund was announced at the Autumn budget in 2017.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
