Red Diesel Cuts To Make Way For For Electric And Hydrogen

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on the Northern Echo.

It is an article worth reading, as Conservative MPs spread the message of the phase out of red diesel to their constituents.

  • It will be painful.
  • Farmers must be protected.
  • Only one person in the audience had an electric car.
  • The government is expected to enhance electric car incentives and provisions.

It was also disclosed that Teeside will be getting hydrogen-powered trains.

  1. From what I have read, farmers will be protected for some time. This will impact boaters and other off-road users (airports? Generators for events and construction) more immediately, although with the current situation they may be using less anyway. Don’t recall the rail situation nor building heating uses.
