Net Zero plan
The UK government has committed to aim for zero net emissions by the year 2050 as part of a new plan to tackle climate change. Certain greenhouse gasses are released into the atmosphere when burning oil, coal, and gas; these greenhouse gasses are then trapped in the atmosphere, causing global warming and climate change.
The UK has also committed to provide £620m in grants for EVs and charging points and an additional £350m to aid in the transition from petrol cars to electric cars.
According to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, transport is the number one contributor to greenhouse has emissions in the UK, making up 27% of all greenhouse gas emissions nationwide. Given the amount of emissions petrol and diesel powered transport produces, electric powered transport is seen as the most important step in the UK’s Net Zero plan and the best way to slow down climate change and global warming.

Should you make the switch to an EV?
Switching to an electric car is an investment that works out cheaper over the lifespan of a car. The initial purchase cost of an electric car can be more expensive, but after factoring in the cost or running, maintenance and tax as opposed to petrol and diesel cars, electric cars are cheaper and will save you money in the long run.
On top of the price difference, electric cars are much better for the environment in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preventing global warming.
