Fuelling the future: motive power and connectivity


The Committee is examining how Government fuel policy will affect connectivity, capacity and sustainability across all transport modes, including motor vehicles, maritime, rail and aviation, up to 2050.

We are particularly interested in receiving written evidence that addresses:

  1. The effect of Government fuel policy on future road, rail, air and maritime connectivity;
  2. Whether and how the Government is ‘technology neutral’ in its regulation and assessment of alternative fuels, and how its policies on alternative fuels influence investment, research, development and production;
  3. The infrastructure required to develop, produce, store and dispense alternative fuels;
  4. Steps that the Government could take to maximise the utility of the UK’s existing transport stock, while meeting its climate-change commitments; and
  5. The contribution that alternative fuels could make to sustainability, transport decarbonisation and connectivity.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Friday 21 January 2022.
