The Department has supported operator trials using biomethane in heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) through our recently completed £20m Low Emission Freight and Logistics Trials (LEFT) programme, delivered with Innovate UK. A final report will be published this month and its conclusions will support the Transport Decarbonisation Plan, which is due to be published later this year.
