DfT “Driving the Future Today” strategy is ‘shot in the arm’ for low carbon vehicle deployment

The new strategy signals a major change in the way vehicles will be powered in the future and reaffirms the government's commitment to provide new opportunities for the motor industry to help grow the UK economy. 


In response, Roger Putnam CBE, ITM Power non-executive chairman and former chairman of Ford of Britain, commented: ‘I am delighted to see this announcement. In my 40 years in the automotive industry, this is by far the largest Government commitment to low emission vehicles I have ever seen.

‘This a significant shot in the arm for low carbon vehicle deployment in the UK, including the roll out of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and the hydrogen infrastructure that will begin to be deployed in the next 18 months.’
