London’s councils are expecting to install over 2,600 charging points across the capital in the next financial year following a call by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and London cab drivers to install more chargers throughout the city.
The roll out of central London’s largest lamp post electric vehicle charging network is nearing completion in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, with over 50 chargers ready for use.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has kickstarted his flagship Energy for Londoners scheme with a series of new initiatives to boost local energy use in the capital.
Chargemaster has laid claim to growing its POLAR network of electric vehicle chargers faster than any other in the country, while Source London is preparing to deploy 1,000 chargers of its own across 20 of the capital's boroughs.
Uber’s new chief executive has said last week’s decision not to renew the company’s license in London is “particularly discouraging” as it will impact efforts to get more electric vehicles on UK roads.
London’s deputy mayor for energy and the environment Shirley Rodrigues has defended City Hall’s decision to tender for a supplier to provide for its Energy for Londoners rather than set up its own licensed company, saying the former would see the benefits get to householders quicker.
Sadiq Khan is to issue a tender for the delivery of an energy supply company in London, suggesting concerns that the London mayor was preparing to row back on a manifesto pledge to create a publicly owned energy company were well-founded.
The number of electric vehicle charging points in London is set to double in the next year after almost £4.5 million was allocated to 25 of the capital’s 32 boroughs to boost charging infrastructure on London's streets.
Sadiq Khan could be preparing to ditch plans for a clean energy supply company using local renewable generation in favour of a white label product run by a third party under its name, according to a London campaign group.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has today unveiled highly ambitious plans for the city’s entire transport network to be zero emission by 2050.
London’s deputy mayor for the environment Shirley Rodrigues has said that the mayor’s flagship energy scheme ‘Energy for Londoners’ is to go live by April.
Over a third of non-domestic buildings in London have the worst energy ratings under EPC standards according to findings by the Association for the Conservation of Energy (ACE).
Sadiq Khan’s efforts to be “the greenest mayor London has ever had” have been bolstered by City Hall’s announcement that it has applied for a licence to supply low carbon electricity.
Transport for London has announced it is to trial wireless charging technology on its hybrid diesel-electric buses.
