star this property answer text <p>The offshore wind sector is a success story for the UK. From 2010 the offshore wind’s share of annual UK generation increased over 5% to 6.2% in 2017, with costs falling faster than anyone could have envisaged 10 years ago. The Offshore Wind Sector deal could deliver up to 30GW by 2030 and the Government has committed to work across Government, including aviation, to ensure this is achieved in a sustainable way taking account of users of the sea, aviation and MOD.</p><p> </p><p>Although wind turbines can impact the effectiveness of radar systems, it’s essential that aviation continues to benefit from a high standard of safety, and therefore ongoing cooperation between Government and the windfarm industry will continue to play a key role in ensuring that this remains the case.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s current policy is that the mitigation costs of offshore wind’s impacts on radar should be recovered from those windfarm developers who stand to benefit commercially. Therefore, the wind sector deal is currently dealt with separately from the upcoming aviation strategy.</p><p> </p><p>An Aviation Management Board, in which the Government and relevant bodies such as NATS and the CAA participate, has been established for the Government to work jointly with both the windfarm industry and the aviation sector to find a solution which meets the needs of both industries and ensures a safe airspace. This will ensure cross-Government coordination on radar and aviation policy matters.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

This is available from Table 1308 at the link below:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/transport-expenditure-tsgb13" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/transport-expenditure-tsgb13</a></p><p> </p><p>Please note this table gives absolute changes in the indices and covers 1987 to 2017.</p><p> </p><p>(d) The costs of travelling by air are not available from ONS data. However, DfT estimates are available based on fare data collected from the Civil Aviation Authority passenger survey from 2000. The real cost of the average UK one-way air fare, including taxes and charges, covering domestic flights from 2010 to 2017 decreased by 22%. From 2015 to 2017 the real cost decreased by 7%.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This information is not available. Total greenhouse gas emissions for each mode of transport are published in Transport Statistics Great Britain table ENV0201: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/energy-and-environment-data-tables-env" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/energy-and-environment-data-tables-env</a>. Total emissions for each transport mode are calculated using various methodologies and data sources. Due to the differences in data sources and calculation methods, it is currently not possible to disaggregate total emissions in a way that allows the calculation of comparable average passenger emissions for the different transport modes. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy does produce conversion factors for use in company reporting, covering a full range of activities which produce greenhouse gas emissions, although these figures are not statistically evidential.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government has had a number of discussions with petrol service station operators about the provision of electric vehicle charge points. 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 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. Already, the vast majority of chargepoints now being installed are funded with private money and we want to see this trend continue. The Automated and Electric Vehicles Act gives the Government new powers to mandate provision of chargepoints at Motorway Service Areas and large fuel retailers. The Government will continue to monitor the market and will bring forward regulation using these powers if the market fails to deliver the infrastructure required.</p><p> </p>
