Jacob Roberts, Transport Policy Manager at the Association for Renewable Energy and Clean Technology (REA), said:

“We welcome the ambition and steps to ban sales of new ICE HGVs by 2040. The UK does have world leading targets in this area. We do however still need to see the detailed policy and technology roadmap to deliver this, ensuring that we can capitalise on a range of technologies to replace fossil fuel powered HGVs – hydrogen, biomethane, and electric.

“The UK Government’s newly unveiled iconic EV Chargepoint design was also a welcome contribution to the development of EV charging infrastructure. Like any prototype design, it was not without its flaws, but we nevertheless commend Government and PA Consulting for introducing some genuinely new design concepts that industry may well take a closer look at.”
