The UK government has announced a £37m (€41.13m) investment in engineering projects aimed at improving electric vehicle infrastructure.
The UK engineering investment was announced yesterday, 9 July, the anniversary of the government’s Road to Zero strategy for a nationwide transition to zero emissions transport. The funding will be divided between 12 initiatives, aimed at promoting uptake of electric vehicles by UK residents by upgrading existing infrastructure to support the specific needs of electric vehicle drivers.
Future of Mobility Minister Michael Ellis said: “We’re charging up the transport revolution and investing in technologies to transform the experience for electric vehicle drivers. Ensuring the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles is reliable and innovative is encouraging more people to join the record numbers of ultra-low emission vehicle users already on UK roads.”
