Electric Nation took part in an event organised by Go Ultra Low Nottingham to showcase ultra-low emission vehicles on 6 May 2017 in Market Square.
In addition to Electric Nation, many of Nottingham’s EV dealers also participated in the event.
DriveElectric’s Ian Hanton, who was explaining to people about the Electric Nation project, says “The event was very busy and we had lots of people enquiring about our offer of free electric vehicle home smart chargers. The EV manufacturers at the event were also happy to promote the project.”
We’re wondering if Ian checked that the creatures from galaxies far, far away had licences to drive electric cars before signing them up for a free smart charger.
Go Ultra Low Nottingham is a Government funded campaign to promote the use of electric and hybrid vehicles across the Nottingham area.
With its fully electric tram system and the UK’s largest fleet of battery electric buses, newly launched plans for creating a Cycle City and the UK’s first local authority-owned Robin Hood Energy Company, Nottingham is already one of the UK’s exemplar cities for integrated sustainable transport and energy generation.
The Government is aiming that by 2040 every new car and van sold in the UK will be an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV). Nottingham’s vision is to become an exemplar for Ultra Low Emission Vehicles spanning private cars, vans, buses, taxis and commercial fleets as a core part of its sustainable transport system.
Nottingham is committed to working with its local partners, industry and Government to implement measures to drive uptake in ULEVs to address local air quality and environmental health issues, attract inward investment and create job opportunities in the growing low carbon transport technology sector.
