Winning ‘Go Ultra Low Cities’ to showcase work at Cenex-LCV2016
Some of the cities that recently won a shared £40m in the Government’s ‘Go Ultra Low Cities’ scheme are to exhibit at next month’s LCV2016 to showcase their work in incentivising EV take-up.
Milton Keynes Council, Nottingham City Council and the cities of Bath and Bristol in West of England were included in the list of winning cities earlier this year, which were awarded the funding to help set up incentives and schemes to encourage drivers to switch to electric cars.
Now the cities will provide visitors to the LCV2016 event on 15 September at Millbrook with a chance to find out more about their work. Representatives from the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) will also be present.
Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol, said: “In the West of England we have a partnership of leading universities and businesses in Bristol and Bath and surrounding areas which are all committed to innovation. The Low Carbon Vehicle event is a great place to hear about the latest developments in this fast moving sector so we are delighted to be showcasing our Go Ultra Low Cities Project, funded by £7m from the Office of Low Emission Vehicles. This project is the next phase of our transformation of powered travel in the city – making electric mobility a more attractive and realistic choice for many people, thereby creating a cleaner and healthier city region.”
In addition to the exhibition, a seminar will be held at LCV2016 on 15 September highlighting the work of the Go Ultra Low Cities and will include presentations from OLEV, Milton Keynes Council, Nottingham City Council and Oxford City Council.
