New ETI report suggests plug-in hybrid vehicles may be needed to bridge the gap to zero tailpipe emission vehicles

29 August 2019

Jonathan Wills

The HGV sector is a difficult area to decarbonise and the share of UK carbon emissions from HGVs is set to rise by 2050 if no action is taken. Through this research we have identified plug-in hybrid HGVs as a viable next step if overall energy system transition costs are to be minimised.

Changing the purchasing behaviour of fleet operators will also be really important to help investment in new technologies.
