The Transport Technology Forum’s Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Working Group is hosting an in-person networking event on Tuesday 28th February – with local authority delegates invited to register to attend.
The event is being hosted by Novuna Vehicle Solutions at its site in Newbury.
The Group has been established to share learnings/knowledge attained through academic research and practical EVCI implemented projects.
Last year the Group, with the support of the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV), launched a simple starter guide aimed at helping local authorities understand the challenges around delivering on-street charging networks for electric vehicles (EVs).
The eight-page document is designed to give authorities an idea of actions required to deliver EV chargers on the public highway. The high-level guidance is written for people familiar with installing equipment on the roadside, but may not yet know what specific requirements they may have to consider for EV chargers.
The guidance is available to view here.
At the next meeting of the group, local authority officers will be given the opportunity to discuss the development of practical experience and evidence-based documents which will create the next short, to the point and succinct high-level framework template that sets out the considerations for the different components required for the delivery of charging infrastructure across the country.
