Ban on sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2030 as UK announces “green revolution”

Published on November 19, 2020 by

The UK government has announced plans for what it says is a “green industrial revolution” – in order to deliver the UK target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

From 2030 the sale of new diesel-only and petrol-only cars will be banned, a decade earlier than originally planned.

There will be more money for new nuclear power, including 16 mini nuclear plants.

There’s a target to replace 600,000 gas boilers a year by 2028 by installing low-energy heat pumps.

The UK government has committed £4 billion to the plan — and hopes 250,000 new jobs will be created in the green sector.
