EV charging infrastructure questions answered at Fleet & Mobility Live

Fleet and Mobility Live logo

Delegates to this year’s Fleet & Mobility Live will gain access to a best practice masterclass that condenses 10 years of electric vehicle charging lessons into a 45-minute session.

Fraser Crichton, Dundee City Council corporate fleet manager and Gary Mcrae, former colleague of Crichton and head of electric mobility at Urban Foresight will share their journey with an in depth presentation that will help fleets with their current and future infrastructure and energy plans.

Delegates attending the event, which is free to attend for fleet decision-makers and takes place on October 5 and 6 at the NEC, near Birmingham, will gain access to 20 seminar sessions from over 25 expert speakers across three theatre areas: Operational Excellence, Strategy and Benefits Box.

Both Mcrae and Crichton have helped to establish Dundee as one of the most advanced cities in the world for EVs.

Dundee already has the UK’s largest public sector fleet of EVs and is committing to going 100% electric with all 600 of its cars and vans by 2025.

The city’s taxi fleet is also making the switch and solar-powered charging hubs have been established to aid businesses and residents, with 300 charge points planned.

Crichton says: “We have learnt so much over the last 10 years so the presentation will be in two parts.

“The first will be summarising some of the biggest learnings over that period and then the second half will be looking at how we can plan for the future.”

Mcrae said a lot of the work on planning for depot, workplace and public charging hubs has already been done in Dundee, but the next step is planning for scale.

He says: “What happens when you commit the entire city to making the switch to EV? We’re now in that process of looking to scale things up, so we’ll be talking about that process too.”

Crichton adds that there will be fleets at all different stages of their charging infrastructure journey, but each delegate will find something to take away from the session, no matter their experience level so far.

Both speakers will also be available as part of a Q&A at the end of the session, while Crichton will also be on hand as part of Fleet & Mobility Live’s Ask the Expert area.

The full agenda for Fleet & Mobility Live is now available to view and registrations are open and free to fleet decision makers.

The “establishing a robust EV workplace charging infrastructure” session is just one presentation that will be at Fleet & Mobility Live, with over 18 expert seminar sessions and more than 20 speakers confirmed across both days.

The show will also offer expert views on emobility strategy development, making the business case for EVs, views on the Government’s latest decarbonisation plans and much more.
