The Government has announced plans to decarbonise all modes of domestic transport by 2050.
Randolph Brazier, Director of Innovation at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s gas and electricity network operators said:
“As part of the Green Recovery the electricity networks are accelerating £300m of expenditure in the next few years to speed up the roll out of projects like electric vehicle charging points. There’s also a much bigger role to play for hydrogen in enabling cleaner heavy transportation on our roads, rail, seas and skies in the future. Investment is what’s needed – but we can’t wait to make that investment ‘just in time’, we need to be making bold decisions and start laying the groundwork now.”
