Jaguar Land Rover announce huge electric vehicle investment

Jaguar Land Rover has announced a huge investment to build electric cars in the UK.

The investment will be centred around the Coventry car maker’s plant in Castle Bromwich, the home of Jaguar, but other plants will also benefit.

Dr Ralph Speth, chief executive of Jaguar Land Rover, said: “The future of mobility is electric and as a visionary British company, we are committed to making our next generation of zero-emission vehicles in the UK.”We are co-locating our electric vehicle manufacture, electronic drive units and battery assembly to create a powerhouse of electrification in the Midlands.”

The news was welcomed by the Government and the trade union Unite.

Business Secretary Greg Clark said: “Today’s announcement is a vote of confidence in the UK automotive industry – protecting thousands of skilled jobs.

“It reflects our determination for the UK to be at the forefront of the development and manufacturing of the next generation of electric vehicles.”
Our sister website BusinessLive is running a live blog on Jaguar Land Rover’s announcement today You can find it. He added: “JLR’s announcement recognises the strength of the excellent workforce at Castle Bromwich and acknowledges the efforts of many parties, including the government and the Mayor Andy Street, to invest and build a sustainable future in the region for advanced manufacturing, safeguarding jobs and skills.”

The investment, which was revealed in the media earlier this week , marks the run-out of the existing XJ, which was made at Castle Bromwich.

It comes in the wake of an agreement by employees to work a four-day week at the Birmingham site.

The agreement was drafted between the company and Unite and hailed as a deal that would secure the future of the Castle Bromwich plant and pave the way for future investment. Employees will still work a 37-hour week.

Huge electric investment, what the credit rating downgrade means, Slovakia update and F-Type spy shots – your Jaguar Land Rover digest Unite’s assistant general secretary for manufacturing Steve Turner said: “Today’s trailblazing announcement by Jaguar Land Rover is testament to the skill and hard work of Unite members and shop stewards.

“Once again they have pulled out all the stops to secure the new investment needed for this new model which will be the first UK built all-electric executive saloon.

“Not only is it a fantastic boost to the UK car industry, but it ensures that Jaguar Land Rover’s Castle Bromwich site remains a powerhouse of the regional economy providing a living for thousands of workers and supporting many more in the supply chain.

“This is a proud day for our members and Jaguar Land Rover.

“The Government and Theresa May’s replacement as prime minister must make sure it is not the last for the UK’s world beating car workers and their families. ”

The Castle Bromwich plant, near Junction 5 of the M6, employs around 2,500 workers.

It produces the XE, XF, XF Sportbrake, F-Type and the current XJ models.

Jaguar Land Rover said the transformation of Castle Bromwich will be “the most significant in the plant’s history”.

The new electric vehicles will be based on the company’s Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA).

Mr Speth said: Convenience and affordability are the two key enablers to drive the uptake of electric vehicles to the levels that we all need. Charging should be as easy as re-fuelling a conventional vehicle.

“Affordability will only be achieved if we make batteries here in the UK, close to vehicle production, to avoid the cost and safety risk of importing from abroad.

“The UK has the raw materials, scientific research in our universities and an existing supplier base to put the UK at the leading edge of mobility and job creation.”

Jaguar Land Rover was the Jaguar I-Pace, which is made under contract by Magna Steyr in Austria.

Batteries for new electric vehicles will be made at a new factory being built in Hams Hall in Warwickshire, while the electric motors will be manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s engine plant near Wolverhampton.

The news of investment will come as a welcome shot in the arm for Jaguar Land Rover, as the firm battles the triple woes of falling sales in China, declining demand for diesel vehicles and ongoing uncertainty over Brexit.

Earlier this year the company announced plans to cut more than 4,000 jobs and later posted losses of £358m (or £3.6 billion if a writedown on the value of assets was taken into account) for the 2018/19 financial year.

Rumours have persisted of a tie-up with, or takeover by, French car maker PSA Group, though Jaguar Land Rover has recently signed a partnership deal with BMW to produce electric drive units (EDUs) for the next generation of electric vehicles.

Limekiln Wind Farm consent will look to create up to 200 jobs

Limekiln Wind Farm consent will look to create up to 200 jobs

New Caithness onshore wind project, Limekiln Wind Farm granted Scottish Government consent will look to create up to 200 jobs during the construction phase.

Developers of Limekiln Wind Farm, Infinergy and Boralex, have been given the green-light to start building the 21-turbine, 90 megawatt (MW) development south of Reay in Caithness.

The project consent submission claims it could bring £39m to the Scottish economy and £14m to the Highland economy.

Limekiln Wind Farm Construction

Limekiln Wind Farm, which developers also claim could bring £5.8 to Caithness and North Sutherland, is due to begin construction in 2021.

It’s also been suggested that the project could deliver £315, 000 a year over the 25-year of the wind farm.

UK-firm Infinergy and Canadian company Boralex said they expect the development to be fully operational by 2022.

Patrick Lemaire, Boralex’s president and chief executive, said: “The Limekiln Wind Farm is our first project in Scotland, and we are delighted to be making our first step in diversifying our portfolio across Europe.

Infinergy and Boralex announced the execution of a 50-50 joint venture agreement in October 2017, aimed at developing a pipeline of onshore wind projects, including the Limekiln Wind Farm project in Scotland.

Esbjorn Wilmar, managing director of Infinergy, said: “We are delighted that the Scottish Government has given consent to Limekiln Wind Farm.

“We always knew that the site was an excellent one, and would ultimately prove its credentials, which includes being sited outside a Wild Land Area, through the planning process.”

Mr Lemaire added: “We believe this project will contribute to reduce carbon emissions to help meet the Scottish Government’s ambitious electricity generation targets and also provide significant investment and economic benefits to the local area as well as helping address the very real climate emergency we all face.

“We look forward to taking this project forwards toward the next steps of financing, construction and operation.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson: UK will lead the world in delivering net zero

Prime Minister Boris Johnson: UK will lead the world in delivering net zero

In his inaugural speech to Parliament new Prime Minister Boris Johnson reaffirms commitment to new UK zero emissions target

The new Prime Minister Boris Johnson used his first address to Parliament to explicitly back the new net zero emissions target his predecessor set into law in the final few weeks of her premiership.

Boris Johnson, who supported the target when asked on the campaign trail but made little specific mention of his plans to tackle climate change, today promised the UK would become a global leader in the low-carbon transition. “Our Kingdom in 2050… will no longer make any contribution whatsoever to the destruction of our precious planet brought about by carbon emissions,” he said. “Because we will have led the world in delivering that net zero target.”

Such an explicit message of support for the ambitious target will be greeted with relief by environmentalists, who have been wary that Prime Minister Boris Johnson may prioritise cutting green regulations and rolling back environmental standards to boost post-Brexit growth.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson Supports Electric Vehicle (EV) Industry

Prime Minsister Boris Johnson appeared to double down on support for the clean growth agenda pioneered by the government under Theresa May, in particular repeating his support for the UK’s electric vehicle (EV) industry. “We will be the home of electric vehicles, cars, even planes, powered by British-made battery technology being developed right here, right now,” he said.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson Supports the Development an £80m Battery Industrialisation Centre

The UK is in the process of developing an £80m Battery Industrialisation Centre in Coventry. But although the centre will develop battery chemistry, electrodes, cell design, modules, and battery packs, it will not manufacture battery cells commercially – they still have to be shipped in to the UK.

Jaguar Land Rover Gigascale Plant

Carmakers including Jaguar Land Rover, which earlier this month confirmed plans to build the all-electric Jaguar XJ in the UK, have called for the UK to develop a gigascale plant capable of producing battery cells at scale and securing the UK’s position as a leading destination for EV manufacturers.

Yet meeting the net zero target will require an extensive policy overhaul across all areas of government, not just transport, particularly given the UK is not currently on track to meet its medium-term carbon reduction targets that are still based on the previous 80 per cent cut in emissions by 2050 target.

Responding to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s statement, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called on the Boris Johnson to respond to the “climate emergency” with urgent policy action. “Will he ban fracking, will he back real ingenuity like the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon, will he increase investment in carbon capture and storage, will he back our solar industry and onshore wind, so devastated over the last nine years?” he asked. “Will he set out a credible plan to reach net zero?”

The Prime Minister’s address came alongside new ministerial appointments, as one of the biggest shake-ups of the Cabinet in living memory continues today.

Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Joining Andrea Leadsom at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is Kwasi Kwarteng, who has been appointed Minister of State for Energy at the Department.

Like his predecessor Claire Perry, Kwarteng will also attend cabinet, but there is no mention of Kwarteng assuming Perry’s clean growth brief, previously part of the ministerial job title. A spokesperson for BEIS was unable to confirm why ‘clean growth’ is not listed as part of Kwarteng’s job title, or whether he will lead on the Department’s climate responsibilities.

Perry relinquished her position as Energy and Clean Growth Minister to take up the role of COP26 President yesterday.

At BEIS, Kwarteng will be responsible for overseeing the UK’s continued transition to a cleaner electricity system, which has to date seen low carbon sources make up around half of the UK’s power needs.

But he will also play a key role in developing much-needed policies to decarbonise the domestic heating system which is currently heavily reliant on gas, as well as boosting home energy efficiency – an issue which the government has faced fierce criticism over in recent weeks.

He will serve under the new Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom, who despite a mixed past track record on environmental policy, has in recent months been a forceful advocate for climate action, the UK’s new net zero emissions goal, and the major rollout of renewables and clean technologies.

A fellow Eton graduate like the PM, Kwarteng moves to BEIS after having served as Under-Secretary in the Department for Exiting the EU since November. Commenting on his appointment this morning, Kwarteng said he was “honoured and delighted” to be joining BEIS.

Theresa May commits to net zero UK carbon emissions by 2050

Theresa May commits to net zero UK carbon emissions by 2050

Net zero UK carbon emissions by 2050

The Prime Minister has announced that the UK will set a Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions target into law, eradicating the country’s net contribution to climate change by 2050. The legislation will amend the 2008 Climate Change Act which set a target for an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 (compared with 1990 levels).

The Government’s plans are a response to the Committee on Climate Change’s recent statement calling for a Net Zero 2050 target.

The 2050 target, in an amendment being put down as a statutory instrument, meaning it does not require a vote of MPs, will be one of the most ambitious such goals set by a major polluting nation.

The commitment, to be made in an amendment to the Climate Change Act laid in parliament on Wednesday, would make the UK the first member of the G7 group of industrialised nations to legislate for net zero emissions, Downing Street said. The legislation will mean that the UK is on track to become the first G7 country to legislate for net zero emissions, with other major economies expected to follow suit. It says that the UK will conduct a further assessment within five years to confirm that other countries are taking similarly ambitious action, multiplying the effect of the UK’s lead and ensuring that our industries do not face unfair competition.

Environmental groups welcomed the goal but expressed disappointment that the plan would allow the UK to achieve it in part through international carbon credits, something Greenpeace said would “shift the burden to developing nations”.

The Climate Change Act has been the foundation of moves to decarbonise the UK economy and this shows that the Government is reaffirming its commitment and further strengthening reduction targets.

“But it’s vital that targets are backed by robust, practical and fair policies that can deliver the objectives. Climate change cannot be an optional extra, it must be front and centre when we’re developing policies in transport, as well as other key areas of the economy.

“Transport is one of the most challenging areas for decarbonisation (as the SMMT’s latest summary, published today shows) and has, so far, proved one of the most intractable. There are real signs of progress – in road transport at least – but much more must be done by Government and all other key stakeholders to ramp up progress and help ensure that the UK is, at least, amongst countries leading the world into a new green, clean industrial revolution.

“Delivering this ambitious new target for a new generation of mobility systems presents big challenges to every player in the transport arena; automotive, energy, government, fleets and, of course, consumers…but together we can – and must – develop, communicate and deliver the plan to get us to Net Zero”.
France proposed net zero emissions legislation this year, while some smaller countries have gone for dates before 2050, such as Finland (2035) and Norway (2030), though the latter allows the buying of carbon offsets.

While the 2050 date was recommended by the UK’s official Committee on Climate Change (CCC), May has rejected its advice on international carbon credits, whereby a country can pay for cuts elsewhere in lieu of domestic emissions. John Gummer, the CCC chair, said last month it was “essential” that such credits were not used.

Doug Parr, the chief scientist for Greenpeace UK, said the target was “a big moment for everyone in the climate movement” and a legacy May could be proud of. However, he said the “loopholes” of allowing international carbon credits would need to be unpicked and the target date moved forward.
“As the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, it is right that the UK is the world’s first major economy to commit to completely end its contribution to climate change, but trying to shift the burden to developing nations through international carbon credits undermines that commitment,” he said. “This type of offsetting has a history of failure and is not, according to the government’s climate advisers, cost-efficient.”

May, who will mark the target on Wednesday by meeting science and engineering students, said it was “the time to go further and faster to safeguard the environment for our children”.

She said: “This country led the world in innovation during the Industrial Revolution, and now we must lead the world to a cleaner, greener form of growth. Standing by is not an option. Reaching net zero by 2050 is an ambitious target but it is crucial that we achieve it to ensure we protect our planet for future generations.”

The plan was endorsed by the CBI’s head, Carolyn Fairbairn, who said such efforts “can drive UK competitiveness and secure long-term prosperity”.
She added: “Some sectors will need clear pathways to enable investment in low-carbon technologies, and it is vital that there is cross-government coordination on the policies and regulation needed to deliver a clean future.”

‘Net Zero’ UK commitment, acceleration of EV uptake

‘Net Zero’ UK commitment, acceleration of EV uptake

The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) report calls for ‘Net Zero’ UK commitment, acceleration of EV uptake

The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has published a landmark report which calls for the UK to adopt a world-leading target of Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The report calls for the target for electric cars introduction to be brought forward and for the accelerated introduction of low carbon technologies for other harder-to-electrify vehicle types, such as long-range trucks.

The CCC says that a net-zero GHG target for 2050 will deliver on the commitment that the UK made by signing the Paris Agreement. It says that the target is achievable with known technologies, alongside improvements in people’s lives, and within the expected economic cost that Parliament accepted when it legislated the existing 2050 target for an 80% reduction from 1990.

The Committee has recommended an earlier target for Scotland (net-zero by 2045), pointing to Scotland’s greater relative capacity to remove emissions than the UK as a whole. The Scottish Government was quick to accept the challenge. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed that the Scottish Government will legislate on the 2045 target. For Wales, the Committee recommends a 95% reduction target by 2050.

The Committee warns, however, that Net Zero will only be possible if clear, stable and well-designed policies to reduce emissions further are introduced across the economy without delay. It says that current policy is insufficient to meet even the existing targets.

Road transport is highlighted as one of the more challenging areas in terms of decarbonisation. In its Technical Report the CCC proposes a ‘further ambition’ scenario in which the ending of sales of non-zero emission cars, vans and motorcycles is brought forward to 2035 at the latest (from the Government’s proposed deadline of 2040). It says that regulatory approval of non-zero emission vehicles limited to 2050 at the latest.

It says that cars and vans can switch, cost-effectively, to electric vehicles and that buses can also change to electricity and hydrogen fuel. The report acknowledges the challenges in decarbonising longer range trucks saying that HGVs should transition to zero emission options including hydrogen and electrification throughout the 2030s but that strong efforts are needed now to determine the best solutions.

The CCC says that electric vehicles are likely to be cost saving compared to petrol and diesel vehicles before 2030. On this basis, the cumulative costs of passenger transport in the UK from 2018 to 2050 may be lower if the end to sales of cars and vans with petrol and diesel engines is brought forward to 2030, compared to 2040. The chart above shows the cumulative costs (vehicles, fuels  – excluding taxation – and infrastructure) of cars and vans given a decision to end sales in 2030 and one to end them in 2040.

The report says: “it would be desirable to aim for 100% of new car and van sales to be electric by the earlier date, but there is uncertainty about the ability of car manufacturers to supply this volume of electric vehicles”.

The report adds that demand for transport can be reduced by encouraging walking, cycling and the use of public transport instead of car travel and by supporting freight operators to make improvements in logistics.

Including ‘further ambition’ measures, the Committee says that all these measures combined can reduce road transport emissions by 98% by 2050, compared to a 1990 baseline.

The Committee says that the UK could receive an industrial boost as it leads the way in low-carbon products and services including electric vehicles, finance and engineering, carbon capture and storage and hydrogen technologies with potential benefits for exports, productivity and jobs.

Speaking at the report launch at One Birdcage Walk, Westminster, Lord Deben, Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change, said that Britain led the world into an industrial revolution powered by fossil fuels and that it can also lead the world out of fossil fuel dependence. “This is not going to be easy, but it’s a challenge we cannot avoid…and we have to start now.”

The Committee’s report, requested by the UK, Scottish and Welsh Governments in light of the Paris Agreement and the IPCC’s Special Report in 2018, finds that:

  • The foundations are in place throughout the UK and the policies required to deliver key pillars of a net-zero economy are already active or in development. These include: a supply of low-carbon electricity (which will need to quadruple by 2050), efficient buildings and low-carbon heating (required throughout the UK’s building stock), electric vehicles (which should be the only option from 2035 or earlier), developing carbon capture and storage technology and low-carbon hydrogen (which are a necessity not an option), stopping biodegradable waste going to landfill, phasing-out potent fluorinated gases, increasing tree planting, and measures to reduce emissions on farms. However, these policies must be urgently strengthened and must deliver tangible emissions reductions – current policy is not enough even for existing targets.
  • Policies will have to ramp up significantly for a ‘net-zero’ emissions target to be credible, given that most sectors of the economy will need to cut their emissions to zero by 2050. The Committee’s conclusion that the UK can achieve a net-zero GHG target by 2050 and at acceptable cost is entirely contingent on the introduction without delay of clear, stable and well-designed policies across the emitting sectors of the economy. Government must set the direction and provide the urgency. The public will need to be engaged if the transition is to succeed. Serious plans are needed to clean up the UK’s heating systems, to deliver the infrastructure for carbon capture and storage technology and to drive transformational change in how we use our land.
  • The overall costs of the transition to a net-zero economy are manageable but they must be fairly distributed. Rapid cost reductions in essential technologies such as offshore wind and batteries for electric vehicles mean that a net-zero greenhouse gas target can be met at an annual cost of up to 1-2% of GDP to 2050. However, the costs of the transition must be fair, and must be perceived as such by workers and energy bill payers. The Committee recommends that the Treasury reviews how the remaining costs of achieving net- zero can be managed in a fair way for consumers and businesses.

There are multiple benefits of the transition to a zero-carbon economy, the Committee’s report shows. These include benefits to people’s health from better air quality, less noise thanks to quieter vehicles, more active travel thanks to increased rates of cycling and walking, healthier diets, and increased recreational benefits from changes to land use.

In addition, the UK could receive an industrial boost as it leads the way in low-carbon products and services including electric vehicles, finance and engineering, carbon capture and storage and hydrogen technologies with potential benefits for exports, productivity and jobs.

Lord Deben, Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change, said: “We can all see that the climate is changing and it needs a serious response. The great news is that it is not only possible for the UK to play its full part – we explain how in our new report – but it can be done within the cost envelope that Parliament has already accepted. The Government should accept the recommendations and set about making the changes needed to deliver them without delay.”

Notes to editors

  1. A net-zero target would require a 100% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. It is referred to as ‘net’ as the expectation is that it would be met with some remaining sources of emissions which would need to be offset by removals of COfrom the atmosphere – by growing trees, for example.

On the other hand, Amsterdam Municipality will ban all fossil-fueled vehicles from the city after 2023. At TEMSA, we are one of the handful of automotive brands worldwide that can offer customers multiple electric vehicle alternatives and we look forward to taking a leading role in this transformation.”

TEMSA CEO Hasan Yildirim

The UITP Global Public Transport Summit is the world’s biggest event dedicated to sustainable mobility and chooses a new setting every two years. This year, the UITP Global Public Transport Summit took place on 9-12 June 2019 in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. Covering all urban and regional transport modes across the globe, the Summit combines congress sessions and an exhibition of the latest innovations, solutions and products by the world’s leading automotive companies.

TEMSA, a world leading automotive manufacturer of buses, coaches and midibus with over 50 years of production experience, exhibited three vehicles including two electric models during the Summit. TEMSA introduced its electric buses Avenue Electron, MD 9 electriCITY and public transportation bus LF 12 at stand no. A2120 in Hall A to visitors from around the world.

Yıldırım: “We can’t wait to play a role in the shift toward electric vehicles”

TEMSA CEO Hasan Yıldırım emphasized the major transformation that the automotive industry is undergoing. Yıldırım underlined that urban mobility is going through a massive transformation despite challenges such as high cost of public buses and building the charging infrastructure in cities, “Europe is leading this transformation. With policy support in cities, municipal bus fleets have already started to shift toward electric vehicles. A number of policies including the European Clean Vehicles Directive as well as goals of cities to improve air quality have been important factors. Some European countries have already announced their intentions and strategies regarding electric bus purchases. For instance, England plans to have 6,000 electric buses in London and France 4,000 buses in Paris by 2030. In Norway, 37% of the passenger cars purchased are electric powered. Meanwhile, Amsterdam Municipality announced that all fossil-fueled vehicles will be banned from the city after 2023.”

Yıldırım noted that the global automotive industry is now shaped around smart cities with ecofriendly and silent models, “At TEMSA, we are one of the handful of automotive brands worldwide that can offer customers multiple electric vehicle alternatives and we look forward to taking a leading role in this transformation. The electric vehicles that we have talking about for years are ready to hit the road. For TEMSA, this is not just an investment but also the beginning of a shift to make our cities, our world quieter and cleaner. It is the first step toward a much smarter, much cleaner future.”

Work on electric vehicles and batteries continues at full speed

Yıldırım also provided information about TEMSA’s electric vehicles introduced during the Summit and said that the transformation in the automotive industry also necessitates different solutions for public transportation, “Our Avenue Electron model is one of the latest mobility solutions for smart cities. Thanks to our advanced technology, we are able to offer batteries with capacities ranging from 240 to 360 kWh in our vehicles, allowing our customers to choose according to their planned range and passenger capacity. This is because we are aware that customers today need solutions customized for their institutions. Accordingly, our long years of work and collaborations on electric vehicles and battery systems continue at full speed.”

12-meter Avenue Electron with 85-passenger capacity

The 12-meter, 35-seat Avenue Electron with 85-passenger capacity, the latest electric model of TEMSA exhibited at UITP is now available for orders. The vehicle’s driving range is 250 kilometers and the battery is fully charged in three hours. With R&D studies on Avenue Electron ongoing, the plan is to extend the range from 250 kilometers to 350 kilometers.

An electric alternative for narrow roads and rough conditions: MD9 electriCITY

The first 9-meter electric vehicle MD9 electriCITY that TEMSA exhibited at the Summit is developed by taking into account narrow roads and relatively rough road conditions. Ready for serial production, this vehicle has a driving range of 230 kilometers, with air conditioning running and average passenger weight. In the next generation of this vehicle, the range is extended to 300 kilometers and the battery pack can be fully charged in two hours.
