Electric Vehicle Charging Competition Briefing - Manchester

Event details
Hear more about the scope for 2 competitions as part of OLEV’s £40m investment in EV Infrastructure, delivered in partnership with Innovate UK.

This competition is split into 2 phases. A first phase feasibility study, followed by a second phase of demonstrator projects, which will only be open to those successful in Phase 1.

  • Wireless electric vehicle charging for commercial uses: feasibility studies
  • Electric vehicle charging for public spaces: feasibility studies

This event will tell you more about the scope for this competition and the application process, as well as offering the opportunity to network and form consortia with other businesses, researchers and organisations with an interest in EV charging and accelerating the uptake of EVs.
