Green vehicle plates

Source: IEA/IRENA Renewables Policies Database
Last updated: 21 July 2021

To increase public awareness of cleaner transport and electric vehicle, the UK Government rolled out green number car plates as of autumn 2020.

 

Drivers will be encouraged to switch to electric vehicles through the introduction of green number plates, which will make the identification of zero emission vehicles easier, helping local authorities design and put in place new policies to incentivize people to purchase them (i.e. cheaper parking and cost-free entry into zero-emissions zone for vehicles with a green number plate).
