UK government called to take action on non EV emissions

The UK government has been urged to introduce a zero emission vehicles (ZEV) mandate to ensure their is a clear path for the increase in ZEV sales.

This is one of the recommendations that has been included in a new report by Energy UK, which states this mandate will require an increase in the share of vehicle manufacturers’ sales which come from ZEVs.

The new report, also suggests how the UK government could help deliver on the current targets for the removal of petrol and diesel vehicles. The report also suggests a ‘Bonus-Malus’ scheme which would ensure ZEVs become more affordable.

Energy UK also asks other policymakers to continue enhancing vehicle carbon dioxide emission performance standards so that emissions which come form non-ZEV sales continue to decrease.

Energy UK’s Head of New Energy Services and Heat Charles Wood said: “As well as making a huge contribution to reducing emissions, the transition to low carbon transport offers real opportunities and benefits for consumers, for UK businesses and the economy and for improving air quality in our towns and cities.”
