The Mayor’s EV Infrastructure Taskforce20th August 2018 / Posted by CRP Team
In May 2018, the Mayor launched the Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Taskforce chaired by Shirley Rodrigues, Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy. The 16-member Taskforce, which CRP has been asked to sit on, will provide guidance on how to implement the Mayor’s vision of a zero emission transport network by 2050, focusing on the lack of electric vehicle charging infrastructure that remains an important barrier to the take-up of EVs.
On 17 July, CRP joined the first of three EV Infrastructure workshops and contributed to facilitated group sessions on EV user types as well as user charging requirements. One of the interesting questions was: Is what users want actually what users need? Unsurprisingly, the discussions were animated.
