If like me, you've noticed a lot more electric cars on the roads lately, that's probably because there are and the numbers are only going to increase.
In a report published by network operator National Grid Plc’s Electricity System Operator unit on Monday, the number of electric cars on Britain’s roads will jump to 30 million in the next 20 years, helped by government policies to phase out the sale of polluting cars.
And whilst electric cars are going to play a crucial part in the nations goal of reaching net-zero emissions by mid-century, National Grid is also backing additional wind and solar, continued renewable energy generation, heat pumps to replace gas boilers, carbon capture and energy storage technology to help achieve the legally-binding net-zero target we simply need to hit.
So it really is up to industry to make sure that’s technically possible, continued innovation and new investment into greener and cleaner technologies is vital.

Emissions from the power sector will be negative by 2033 as renewable generation and carbon capture and storage technology effectively sequesters more CO2 than plants emit, National Grid said. Levels of natural gas burnt without emissions-removing technology will halve by 2038.
