20 April 2009 #SMMT News

In January 2009, Geoff Hoon, transport secretary, announced that government would be investing £250 million in low-carbon vehicles as part of government plans on low-carbon transport. In March 2009, the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) published its initial scoping paper on a vision for a ‘Low Carbon Industrial Strategy’. Within the consultation paper, government sets out the aim of “making the UK a global leader in the development and production of low carbon vehicles”. A final Low Carbon Industrial Strategy will be published in the summer.
