With the requirement set for a "Net Zero" decarbonisation by 2050 the UK has entered into an aggressive programme regarding road transport - for example requiring cessation of sales of new petrol and diesel powered passenger cars by 2030. The talk will outline the possible contending technologies, their pros and cons and the resultant actions that will need to be taken to achieve targets.
