Event details

By 2030, it’s anticipated there will be between eight to 11 million hybrid or electric cars in the UK. But how do we develop an adequate electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure to meet this upcoming surge in demand?

David Trousdale, specialist in Electric Vehicles and Charging infrastructure at WSP, discusses targets for EV charge point deployment, EV charging infrastructure in the local context and the challenges that lie ahead.

This event is presented in collaboration with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the largest multidisciplinary professional engineering institution in the world.
