The Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce has outlined 21 key proposals to accelerate the electric transition.
The government-backed initiative was established in 2018 with an aim is to bring together all of the key organisations who will play a key roll in the electric vehicle transition.
The task force has identified 21 proposals to maximise the benefits and minimise the challenges associated with electric vehicles to the electricity networks and EV users.
The group will now focus on turning these proposals into action, which will be implemented through four themed working groups, the proposals include:
- Supporting the delivery of resilient charging infrastructure
- Enabling smart charging by establishing minimum technical requirements
- Giving consumers control of their data
- Coordination of the industry’s consumer-facing information about EV’s, smart charging and services
- Supporting the delivery of high-quality public charging by specifying UK-wide best practice for charge point and infrastructure planning
Kwasi Kwarteng, minister for business, energy and clean growth said: ‘The Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce agenda is an important part of our efforts to electrify road transport and eliminate our contribution to climate change by 2050.
‘I am looking forward to speaking at this event and being a part of the Taskforce’s exciting next phase.’
Rachel Maclean, minister for the future of transport added: ‘Thanks to our £2.5bn investment in plug-in vehicle grants and charging infrastructure there’s never been a better time to switch to electric vehicles.
‘We’re delighted to support the important second phase of the EV Energy Taskforce and I would encourage industry from across the board to get involved.’
