The electric vehicle (EV) market in the UK is growing, but perhaps not at the pace that it needs to if we’re to meet our net-zero targets by 2030. The recent transport decarbonisation strategy issued by the UK government sets out plans to encourage the uptake of EVs and the upcoming ban on sales of petrol cars is encouraging more people to choose EVs, but critics and questions remain.

The purpose of this webinar is to take a closer look at the benefits of EV ownership for the drivers, the community and the planet. Our panel will discuss why EVs are different from internal combustion engine-powered cars and give their thoughts on the government’s strategy for a sustainable transport system.

We will look at the barriers to EV ownership, in particular, the perceived issue of access to charge points. We will discuss the options for this, the current infrastructure, the BRD model and how the innovative tech platform, Co Charger fits into it.

Co Charger is helping communities take control of their EV charging needs by creating networks of EV owners who can share charge points, encouraging more people to make the switch to electric and meaning the value is retained by the community. In the webinar, you will have an opportunity to learn about how it works, the business model and growth projections and why they are raising funds via a share offer on Ethex to help them achieve their vision.
