Road to 2030: Delivering on the commitment to decarbonised transport
Date: Thursday 24 June
Time: 09.30 - 10.30
Last year the Prime Minister brought forward the ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans to 2030, alongside which he announced that from 2035 all new cars and vans would be zero-emission.
A Government Green Paper, expected in the next few months, will explore possible courses of action to deliver on these announcements, kicking off a decision-making process that will be fundamental to decarbonising road transport and meeting our climate change targets.
As well as finding out everything you need to know on zero emission vehicle (ZEV) policy in 2021, join this Energy UK Breakfast Briefing to hear from leading experts on:
- The policy levers that are available to Government to increase the uptake of ZEVs and phase out the internal combustion, and their pros and cons
- The main challenges to phasing out the internal combustion engine
- The role of the upcoming Green Paper and what to expect in it
- What role hybrid technologies should play (if any) in decarbonising cars and vans
Confirmed speakers include:
- Katie Black, Joint Head, the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles
- Greg Archer, UK Director, Transport and Environment
