Go Ultra Low West

EV Policy Dissemination Workshop - 10 September 2019

This event is aimed at policy makers, local government employees and members of the zero-emission mobility community with an active interest in policy development. The organisers intend for the session to be interactive and positively approach issues regarding the need for EV-related policy provision to meet air quality targets, e-mobility solutions and overall ULEV adoption.

On Tuesday 10 September 2019, UWE (University of the West of England) in Bristol will be the host for an exciting opportunity to share with the UK our work in the West of England looking into an emerging EV policy.

This work was commissioned in early 2019 by the Go Ultra Low West project, to provide an evidence piece for the “local plan” regarding policy recommendations associated with Electric Vehicle infrastructure. The overall aim is to develop policy to encourage the uptake of Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles with reference to future proofing for the evolution of new technologies.

As part of the Go Ultra Low Project and through knowledge sharing/exchange, it became apparent that the opportunity to disseminate the findings of this policy development work would be beneficial to many other organisations wishing to develop the same, tailored to their region in the UK.

This event aims to to provide:

  • Recommendations upon which local authorities can base their decision of where on the spectrum towards the optimal EV policy position they wish to be, to meet air quality targets and EV adoption.
  • A presentation from Go Ultra Low West regarding the EV infrastructure roll out successes and lessons including the limitations that the current policy has created.
  • An evidence-based presentation from UWE bringing latest findings from their research
  • A presentation from an E-Mobility solutions provider Ubeeqo / E-Car Club
  • A panel session with all speakers (opportunity for questions)

Registration is via Eventbrite.
