Residential Electric Vehicle Charging for Everyone


Online event

Date & Time

Thursday 10 Feb 2022 12:30 - Thursday 10 Feb 2022 14:00


Transport practitioners and policy-makers, particularly those working in UK local governments
Get insight from Oxford researchers as they unveil new policy briefs and discuss how to make electric vehicle charging more accessible

As the UK Government committed to end the sale of solely fossil-fuelled cars by 2030, the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) is accelerating, and with it the demand for charging infrastructure. Meeting this demand among households who can’t charge at home is one of the biggest challenges for local policy-makers across the country. It is not only a question of capacity, but also location and service. What do residents want from local EV charging infrastructure and services? And how can their local authorities support them?

Join us at this webinar designed for transport practitioners and policy-makers, particularly those working in UK local governments, for the launch of three policy briefs by University of Oxford researchers:

  1. Enabling the Acceleration of EV Adoption - discusses regional forecasting of EV uptake and the release of GECCO: the Geospatial Evaluator for EV Charging in Car parks Overnight.
  2. Preferences for public EV charging - shares findings on consumer preferences for public charging in residential areas.
  3. Charging when parking – a social change of routine - highlights the implications of adding EV charging to existing parking routines.

The webinar will also include a panel discussion with policy-makers from Oxfordshire County Council and OZEV sharing their first-hand experience of the challenges they’ve encountered and their successes in implementing public EV charging infrastructure.
