Government has announced plans for all new road vehicles, including heavy goods vehicles, in the UK to be zero emission within the next twenty years.

Randolph Brazier, Director of Innovation and Electricity Systems at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said:

"Today at COP26's transport day the government's raft of announcements marks a visible change for the UK's roads. We remain laser-focussed on delivering the often invisible changes needed to enable this; a smarter, more robust power system and the green gases needed for heavier transport. However, we need deeper collaboration with government and local authorities along with early investment to prepare the ground for this seismic shift."
