Making London and the South East EV Ready

Technological developments in the Electric Vehicle (EV) space, alongside government policy support, such as the Road to Zero Strategy, have helped accelerate the uptake of EVs in the UK.

Forecasts suggest between 1.9 to 4.1 million EVs will not only be on our roads but also on our power networks by 2030.

The government's Net Zero report further extends the ambition of carbon reduction, which could accelerate the uptake of EVs.

London has seen the largest uptake and this could accelerate.

How will Transport for London, London’s Taxi’s and other major vehicle fleets along with consumer transition to EV impact our regional power networks?
