2022-09-19 09:00 2022-09-19 17:00 Europe/London Zemo Partnership's Local EV Energy Infrastructure Forum - Coventry

The inaugural local electric vehicle energy infrastructure forum from Zemo Partnership will discuss the challenges and opportunities involved in the transition to electified transport.

Sales of electric vehicles in the UK are soaring – 1 in 5 new cars are now either fully electric or a plug-in hybrid. With this surge in popularity comes an urgent need to ensure that we have an EV public charging infrastructure capable of supporting this growth, both now and in the future.

There are two key priorities for local authorities to consider:

  1. Providing the right chargepoints in the right place, at the right price.
  2. Being part of a coordinated consumer-focused approach at a local, regional and national level.

This free one day workshop is for all local authority personnel tasked with the rollout of EV charging infrastructure in their area. It is run by Zemo Partnership in collaboration with Coventry City Council and Western Power Distribution.

The day will provide the opportunity to:

  • Hear the first-hand experiences and learnings from Coventry City Council’s public charging programme
  • Ask our panel of experts for help and guidance
  • Meet colleagues from neighbouring LAs
  • Make contact with key public EV charging infrastructure stakeholders

Outline Agenda (full agenda will be published shortly):

  • Setting the scene - Background, national and regional policy positions
  • Local experience - Hear from the host city on their experience so far
  • Regional fleet requirements - Discuss what the transport requirements for the area are
  • Local barriers and opportunities - Discuss with colleagues from the region what shared hurdles need to be overcome and experts in the field share what potential solutions could be implemented.

This is an invite only event.

If you would be interested in participating, please contact Alec Thomson for details
