    Launch of consultation on introducing green number plates for zero emission cars.



    Electric vehicles may become even greener, the government has announced today (22 October 2019) with the launch of a consultation on introducing green number plates for zero emission cars.

    As the UK moves at pace towards net zero emissions, the initiative aims to raise awareness of the increasing number of zero tailpipe emission vehicles on UK roads, help their drivers to benefit more easily from local incentives like free or cheaper parking and encourage greater uptake of new vehicle technology.

    The announcement marks another milestone for the government’s Road to Zero Strategy, a £1.5 billion package of support which aims to make the UK the best place in the world to own an electric vehicle. Since the strategy’s publication, the UK has seen record numbers of zero emission vehicles registered and the government has marked its intention to be the first G7 country to legislate for net zero emissions by 2050.

    Through the introduction of green number plates, local authorities would have a useful visual identifier should they wish to introduce incentives to promote the use of zero emission vehicles, such as allowing these drivers to use bus lanes and to pay less for parking. A similar scheme was trialled in Ontario with drivers of electric vehicles given free access to toll lanes and high occupancy vehicle lanes. Ontario saw an increase in electric vehicle registrations.

    Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said:
    The UK is in the driving seat of global efforts to tackle vehicle emissions and climate change and improve air quality, but we want to accelerate our progress.
    Green number plates are a really positive and exciting way to help everyone recognise the increasing number of electric vehicles on our roads.
    By increasing awareness of these vehicles and the benefits they bring to their drivers and our environment, we will turbo-charge the zero emission revolution.
    Elisabeth Costa, Senior Director at the Behavioural Insights Team, said:
    The number of clean vehicles on our roads is increasing but we don’t notice as it’s difficult to tell clean vehicles apart from more polluting ones.
    Green number plates make these vehicles, and our decision to drive in a more environmentally-friendly way, more visible on roads. We think making the changing social norm noticeable will help encourage more of us to swap our cars for cleaner options.
    Potential plate designs include:

    • a fully green number plate with black lettering
    • the addition of a green flash on the plate
    • the addition of a green dot or symbol


    The consultation seeks views from industry and the public on a number of aspects surrounding the scheme, including vehicle eligibility, number plate design and the rollout of the plates.
    It follows the Transport Secretary’s recent announcement that he has doubled funding for chargepoints on residential streets, to help make charging an electric car easier for those without access to off-street parking.

    The government is also currently reviewing responses to the consultation on requiring chargepoints to be built into all new homes with a parking space.

    Meanwhile, in the real world, I submitted a Freedom of Information request to Sefton MBC a couple of months ago, asking how many charging points they have provided that are accessible to the public, what their targets are for the next 5 years, and asked for their comments about government grants that are available for on-street charging points, that Sefton have not applied for.

    Re the charging points, there are two at Crosby Lakeside, an unspecified number at Meadows Leisure Centre, and none in Southport.

    They don't have a target for future installations apart from the desire to 'increase' the number.

    They haven't applied for a grant due to 'challenges' in providing and maintaining the on-street charging points, 'particularly given the nature of some of Sefton's streets'. What this 'nature is, is not explained.

    I know I've posted the above before, but I make no apologies for this, because I think it should be shouted from the rooftops just how out of touch our local authority is with environmental matters.

    Southport has a large number of apartment buildings where it is impossible for residents to have a charging point, and would have to rely on on-street points installed by the local authority, but Sefton has apparently no plans to install any.

    Sadly not just a local problem, saw a short piece on TV where a driver had recorded his journey, he was forced into making diversions to virtually double his trip just getting to charge points, he has gone back to a diesel engined car, not the aim surely.

    Oh yes, I realise that, but what gets me is that the government people chastising the public about not buying electric cars just do not realise what it's like in the real world.

    They probably live in detached houses in the leafy shires with a double garage and two charging points.

    What was even crazier the guy mentioned had an app on his phone showing charging points, the trouble was many of them were on private property, plus (something I didn't know) not all charging connections are the same or compatible.
