The Road to Zero Carbon!

Making London - and the South East - Electric Vehicle Ready

Forecast 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 governments 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.
