A TRADE show that aims to support the faster roll-out of the UK’s charging network for cleaner vehicles is to be held at Stoke City’s bet365 Stadium in March.
The free event, organised by manufacturers sales agency LB Agency, will take place on Tuesday, March 10, between 2pm and 8pm at the football club’s Waddington Suite.
It has been announced that the ban on selling new petrol and diesel cars in the UK will be brought forward to 2035, under government plans. The new trade show will bring together leading manufacturers to showcase the latest trends in electric vehicle (EV) charging and smart home technology.
More than a dozen manufacturers will be exhibiting at the trade show. Rolec EV will be offering product awareness training sessions throughout the event, at 3pm, 5pm and 6pm.
Organiser Lee Burgess has worked with the electrical industry for the last two decades. He said: “In the UK, we’re seeing a rapid increase in demand for domestic, commercial and public facing EV charging points due to electric vehicle registrations hitting a record high. The aim of the event is to provide electrical wholesalers, specifiers, and contractors with the opportunity to see the latest EV products and energy-saving solutions and speak to the manufacturers first-hand.”
The National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC) will also be offering advice on the new amendment to the 18th Edition wiring regulations. The update, released February 3, enables a more practical solution for electric vehicle charging installations, helping to further support the rollout of the UK’s charging infrastructure.
There will also be an opportunity for business owners to find out about the Workplace Charging Scheme, a grant for up to £10,000 to reduce the cost of having EV charge points installed at their premises.
