The UK government has announced the ban of new petrol and diesel cars from sale after 2030. The ban had initially been planned for 2040 but has been brought forward under Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s 10-point plan to tackle climate change.

The 10 points in UK’s green plan are:

  • Offshore wind: Harnessing enough offshore wind to power every home, quadrupling production to 40GW by 2030, supporting up to 60 000 jobs
  • Hydrogen: Generating 5GW of low-carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030 and developing the first town heated entirely by hydrogen by the end of the decade
  • Nuclear: Promoting nuclear as a clean energy source and developing the next generation of small and advanced reactors, which could support 10 000 jobs
  • Electric vehicles: Accelerating the transition to electric vehicles, and transforming infrastructure to support electric vehicles
  • Public transport, cycling and walking: Making cycling and walking more attractive and investing in zero-emission public transport
  • Jet Zero and greener maritime: Supporting research projects for zero-emission planes and ships
  • Homes and public buildings: Making buildings greener and more energy efficient, creating 50 000 jobs by 2030, and installing 600 000 heat pumps every year by 2028
  • Carbon capture: Technology to capture and store harmful emissions away from the atmosphere, removing 10MT of carbon dioxide by 2030
  • Nature: Protecting and restoring the natural environment, planting 30 000 hectares of trees every year, creating and retaining thousands of jobs
  • Innovation and finance: Developing technologies needed for the plan and making London the global centre of green finance
