DAY ONE

Side Event | CENEX  
10.40 – 11.10

What’s next for residential EV charging?

As the election dust settles, all eyes in the EV Infrastructure (EVI) world will turn once again to the delivery of EVI to support the nation’s transition to decarbonised transport.  Project Rapid and the Local EV Infrastructure Fund has been billed as the ‘last big’ public intervention in the on-street, near-home, low-powered arena.  But what will these projects deliver and over what timescales?  And then - will that be it – done and dusted – and over to the private sector to install, commission and operate?  Or will there still be need for public and/or private investment?  This side-event will explore whether further action will be needed and what, where, how and when.
