The Reducing emissions from road transport: Road to Zero Strategy whitepaper, announced by Secretary of State for Transport Chris Grayling on 9 July, reinforces the UK Government’s commitment to building a cleaner road transport sector and presents both opportunities and considerations for the transport, automotive and energy sectors.

Highlights from the Road to Zero Strategy whitepaper

  • 50-70% of cars, and at least 40% of vans, to be Ultra Low Emission by 2030 – providing some medium term clarity for automotive, energy and transport sectors.
  • Committed to a £1.5 billion support package towards initiatives such as ‘Faraday Battery Challenge’ research, charging infrastructure investment fund, and launching a 2018/2019 Go Ultra Low campaign.

Opportunities and considerations for energy, automotive and infrastructure

The Government's committment to lead on Zero Emission Vehicles' (ZEV) design and manufacturing and commit to research and development is clear. There will be huge opportunities for automotive, energy and infrastructure companies along the Road to Zero.
