Charging & Infrastructure WEBINAR - 14th September

Charging and infrastructure remains a prominent discussion point and also a concern because it dictates commercial EV use viability. As a result this gathering of thought leaders focuses on strategy and planning and asks, is the infrastructure there to keep your vehicles on the road?

Are there enough chargepoints in the right places and are they the right chargers for you? And then consider the application of innovative solutions. What is out there and what will work?
