The UK government has announced a call for evidence on non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) decarbonisation.
They are seeking stakeholder evidence on areas including decarbonisation options available to NRMM, as well as possible barriers and opportunities to their adoption. Responses will be used to support future policy, in particular the development of a NRMM decarbonisation strategy, which was announced within the government’s Net Zero Growth Plan in March 2023.
NRMM broadly refers to any mobile machine, transportable equipment or vehicle which is not intended for the transport of goods or passengers on the road and is installed with a combustion engine. Examples include construction and agricultural machinery.
This is a joint call for evidence by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ), the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), and the Department for Transport (DfT) to reflect the use of NRMM across multiple sectors of the economy.
The call for evidence closes on Tuesday 26th March 2024, and further information can be found on the UK Government call for evidence web-page.
Responses can be provided online here.
