Over 300 business end users (ranging from large retail and food store chains to mid-size and large-size fleet operators, FTSE350 corporates, government agencies through to UK local and regional authorities) took part in LIVE EV Charging Infrastructure AC, DC, V1G, V2G Focus Day (EVCI2022) in June 2022. 

Our latest Ambassadors' Day: Corporate Net Zero event was covered in the news.

Event Format:

Optimal Charging: Leaders or Followers is about accelerating buyer charging infrastructure uptake whilst optimising capacity and capability of their infrastructure in a smart and capital efficient way.

A comprehensive day for corporate buyers and their executive management that supports the UK transition to Net Zero with critical end user content at the heart of discussions. 

Optimal Charging will bring together public and private end users and buyers seeking to gain a deeper knowledge in facilitating, expanding and optimising their EV charging infrastructure and market stakeholders that are pivotal to this market.

Learn from UK landowners, property, fleet and facility operators about charging capabilities they are looking to provide post RIIO-ED2, cross-stakeholder cooperation and their journey into facilitating the required infrastructure, its operation, optimisation and upgrade. Robust discussions from leading industry peers, fast-paced Q&As and fact packed case studies with plenty of opportunity to engage 1-2-1 after presentations and throughout the event.

UK businesses are set to heavily invest in the transition to electric vehicles this year and the next. With £13.6 bn earmarked to be spent to support this transition businesses are installing EV chargers on their premises with almost half of the firms already installed some charging points and more than a third planning to invest in on-site charging infrastructure in the next 12 months.
