Under the Breakthrough Agenda, 40 nations have committed to coordinate the global introduction of clean technologies, including clean electricity and electric vehicles.
The UK, US, China, India, the EU and Australia are among the group who have signed up to the Breakthrough Agenda. The first five breakthroughs will be clean electricity, electric vehicles, green steel, hydrogen and sustainable farming. The aim is to make these affordable and available to all nations by 2030 and create 20 million new jobs.
We have seen this work with solar panels and LEDs and now we need to see the same for electric vehicles and green energy. Transport is the single biggest contributor to carbon emissions here in the UK, yet a vital part of people’s lives. We need to see greater adoption of electric vehicles to reach net zero and we look forward to seeing how the agenda can help drive this forward.
