Resources for local authorities on electric vehicle chargepoints

With the UK Government planning to end the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2035, and the increasing need to take action on climate change and air pollution, local authorities are looking to establish or expand their electric vehicle (EV) charging point provision.

Our resources help local authority officers deliver effective EV charging infrastructure, including webinars, case studies and best practice guidance.

You can also sign up to our Authority Alert newsletter for monthly updates.
