KTN launches consultation on funding for innovation in EV charging systems

Innovate UK and the Office for Low Emission want to provide EV charging infrastructure and wireless charging for electric vehicles. In response to this ambition, the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) will be facilitating three scoping workshops on 30th April (Manchester), 1st May (Bristol) and 3rd May (London), to identify how support for EV charging infrastructure and wireless charging for EVs could be best directed in terms of scope. The workshops will be exploring topics such as barriers to urban charging infrastructure deployment, innovative technologies and business models, opportunities and use cases for wireless charging and the main areas of focus for technology development.

KTN says it is interested in what new technology and approaches may be needed and what urban design approaches could be utilised. It also wants to know where new business models may need to be trialled in order to deliver value to zero emission vehicle drivers and operators in urban areas. KTN wants to hear from anyone with an interest in this area, particularly local authorities, which will have a huge impact on the uptake of this agenda.

However, of equal interest are the views of large, medium and small companies, research organisations or universities, involved in any part of the supply chain including but not limited to automotive, energy, digital, built environment, infrastructure planners and housing and construction companies, business and service modelling and design, and human factors.

KTN is inviting anyone interested in attending the consultation to register their interest. Places are limited so people will be contacted by Monday 16th April to confirm whether or not a place has been allocated. Places will initially be restricted to one participant per company or institution.

The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is a network partner of the Technology Strategy Board, more widely known as Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency. Its aim is to help businesses get the best out of creativity, ideas and the latest discoveries, to strengthen the UK economy and improve people’s lives.
