PATROL presents electric vehicles workshop

Leading the Charge, London, 2 April 2020

06 March 2020


PATROL is is hosting a workshop on electric vehicles (EVs) in London on 2 April.

The Leading the Charge Electric Vehicles Workshop will look at the emerging landscape surrounding the adoption of EVs, welcoming a series of speakers from inside government, local authorities and stakeholder organisations, as well as the Traffic Penalty Tribunal for an enforcement and appeals perspective.

The PATROL (Parking and Traffic Regulations Outside London) Joint Committee represents over 300 civil enforcement authorities.

The day will explore the government’s objectives for EVs, the funding available to local authorities to encourage EV take up (including support available for making funding applications), as well as a series of local authority case studies exploring their experiences of the challenges, opportunities and solutions of EV adoption in a range of community settings.

Workshop highlights will include representatives from the Department for Transport (DfT), Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and the Energy Saving Trust, providing information on available funding and practical help with bidding applications. There will also be a look at considerations for the enforcement of EV charging and Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) from the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.
