Northern Powergrid plans EV charging events for councils

Published:  07 November, 2018

A series of events providing information to local authorities on low emission vehicle charging will be run next year by Northern Powergrid.

With a statutory obligation to meet clean air targets and social responsibility to encourage low carbon transport, local authorities are closely involved in the roll-out of EV charging.  

‘We are seeing a significant desire to move away from token charging points that act as ‘Eco-Bling’, Mike Hammond, Head of Connections Services at Northern Powergrid.

‘Many Local Authority personnel have common questions and early ideas on EV charging. As such, there is a growing need for a forum that enables exploratory cross-authority conversations to happen in the company of a technologically-knowledgeable but technology-agnostic team of experts who can share experiences and help ideas become actionable plans.’

Local Authority staff keen to register early interest for the sessions in the new year should email yourpowergrid@northernpowergrid.com.
