I mentioned in my previous blog following the Smart Cities conference that although smart city transformation is expanding throughout the UK, cities still face major challenges in making this vision reality.
With smart city technology being adopted across a range of sectors, citizens are now able to make more informed decisions. One of the key challenges is the implementation of charging infrastructure and wireless charging for electric vehicles.
In order to ensure that local government are able to reach their goals, effective collaboration is essential as it will ensure that our resources are being used as efficiently as possible.
Innovate UK and the Office for Low Emission Vehicles are running three workshops on 30th April (Manchester), 1st May (Bristol) and 3rd May (London); where they will work with key parties interested to identify how support could be best directed for innovation in urban systems and designs to provide electronic vehicle charging infrastructure for on-street parking & wireless charging across the UK.
If you are interested in attending the consultation event, please register to indicate your interest.
Here at CCS our Traffic Management Technology 2 framework aligns with the smart cities agenda, meaning we can help you with all of your electronic vehicle charging infrastructure needs as well as an end to end digital solution for traffic management.
