TransportEnergy grant programmes consultation announced

Tue 07 September 2004 View all news

The Department for Transport, the Scottish Executive and the Welsh Assembly Government have launched a consultation to seek views on the performance of the clean vehicle grant programmes run by the Energy Saving Trust: PowerShift, CleanUp and the New Vehicle Technology Fund.

The TransportEnergy grant programmes, along with other initiatives - including the introduction of carbon-linked vehicle taxes, EU voluntary agreements and standards, and the establishment of the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership - represent key instruments for delivering the Government's Powering Future Vehicles Strategy.

In particular, the governments invite comments on the possibility of bringing the TransportEnergy programmes together into a new, technology-neutral low emission programme.

LowCVP intends to facilitate a coordinated Partnership response to the consultation. Any comments or suggestions from members should be directed to the chairperson of the relevant working group.

DfT, SE and WAG request that consultation responses be submitted by 29 October, 2004.
