Electric vehicles, their many benefits and the importance of introducing more charging points were the focus of a special showcase event in County Durham.
Rev Up the North – Electric Vehicle Charging in the North took place at Durham Town Hall and provided an opportunity for people and businesses interested in switching to an electric vehicle to view a selection of the latest models.
Drivers could also pose questions to a team of experts, including representatives from Durham County Council’s electric vehicle and climate change teams.
The event also offered a chance for organisations working to promote green transport to discuss ways to improve electric vehicle infrastructure in the region. A series of in-person and online workshops were delivered by organisations including the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles, Innovate UK and Northern Powergrid, covering topics ranging from charging challenges to lessons learnt across Europe.Source: Aycliffe Today
