Road To Zero: the Future of UK Mobility Is Electric

The British government’s Road to Zero Strategy leaves no room, not even a mile of road, for polluting vehicles

Phasing Out Fossil Fueled Cars by 2040

Electric mobility in the UK is a serious matter. Each newly built home will have to include a charging point for electric vehicles. The British government has approved a substantial increase in funding for businesses that invest in charging infrastructure for e-vehicles. The UK has declared war on carbon emissions with actions that will expand the network of charging points, including those located at highway service stations, and by raising the price of polluting fuels to discourage their use. The end goal? To bring the sale of petrol and diesel-powered cars and trucks to an end by 2040.

The Future of e-Mobility is Here

Our brand, present in the United Kingdom through EnerNOC and eMotorWerks, is perfectly in line with Downing Street’s new initiative. Enel X is working to cultivate the culture of e-mobility with a quick charge infrastructure plan spread out across Italy and Europe to encourage a paradigm shift in transportation. With the new fast charging stations, which can “fill up” an e-vehicle battery in just 30 minutes, the future of mobility is upon us. The vehicles of the near future are electric, intelligent and respect the environment.

Street lighting will also play a key role in the electric revolution. In the United Kingdom, lampposts will also serve as charging stations for electric vehicles, just like the project that Enel X is planning for Italy. The United Kingdom is offering some notable incentives for all drivers who switch to an electric vehicle by 2020 and is working to install infrastructure across the territory, while incentivizing the purchase of zero emissions cars. The good practices adopted in the United Kingdom are certainly paving the way towards a clean and intelligent future. Without a doubt, the country’s example is worth watching and emulating. After all, as they say in English, a good beginning makes a good ending.
