Public charging infrastructure master plan TandE
  • Green-plating zero emission vehicles

    The green number plate ​proposal​ by the UK Department for Transport provides a worthwhile nudge to the growing market for electric vehicles complementing other more important initiatives to encourage purchase like the plug-in car grant and benefit in kind company car tax breaks.

    The battery electric car market is growing strongly and is expected to reach over 3% in 2020
    and approaching 7% in 2021. Initially the green plate will clearly differentiate ZEV’s and their
    drivers providing a visible signal of their socially responsible choice enhancing the appeal of the
    technology. Over time, the number of green plates will increase illustrating the normalisation of
    the technology.
