In response to lack of support for diverse fuels in the haulage sector, the UK Government has announced an annual subsidy to help.
The Handy Shipping Guide reports
‘£500 million funding package for ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) announced this week has been warmly welcomed, not least by the Freight Transport Association (FTA).
The association has been arguing for the need for financial support for the HGV sector to help invest in alternative fuels and technologies that will reduce carbon emissions and help improve air quality. The FTA responded to the Office for Low Emission Vehicles’ (OLEV) call for evidence on how the new funding package for the period 2015-2020 should be allocated, highlighting the opportunities for the HGV sector to reduce emissions by utilising gas and biomethane as an alternative to diesel.’
