The Transport Committee has set out a series of recommendations to government to increase electric vehicle (EV) uptake while ensuring the electricity demand of charging can be met.
The UK will need to install public electric vehicle (EV) chargepoints five times faster than the current rate over the next decade, with government tenders recommended to support this.
Current± caught up with the ENA's head of innovation and development Randolph Brazier to discuss the importance of data in the electrification of transport, visibility of EV chargers and the need for the government's Rapid Charging Fund.
Measures to improve the UK's green infrastructure - including the creation of a UK infrastructure bank, a ramping up of electric vehicle policy and funding for hydrogen and carbon capture and storage - have been detailed by the government.
The Renewable Energy Association (REA) has outlined eight principles for the deployment of the government’s £500 million Rapid Charging Fund.
