- GET INVOLVED
The automotive industry adds £9.5bn to the UK economy and employs around 380,000 people. British workers design, engineer and build cars that are sold globally. It is clear that there is an environmental and an economic imperative to to change. In the short term we need improvements to existing technologies: efficiency, light materials and drag reduction. Longer-term we need the new, cleaner technology that is still evolving. Electric and hydrogen powered vehicles will increase electricity demand, but through smart management of our networks we can minimise the need for new power stations and maximise the benefits these vehicles can bring in the creation of a greener grid.
