Motorists in Cardiff who are considering an electric car can apply for a free smart charger through the Electric Nation project, and they can find out more at the ‘FUTURE CAR:DIFF’ event on Tuesday 11 July 2017.


Mike Potter from Electric Nation will be one of the presenters at the event, which takes place from 1.30pm to 5.30pm at St David’s Shopping Centre.

Join leading professionals from business, academia and the public sector on Tuesday 11 July for a half-day interactive event to explore current and future challenges and opportunities that the car presents in Cardiff.

The car has a role to play in delivering a sustainable future but only if city infrastructure, technology and our patterns of use change.

Together we need to face the reality of our relationship and reliance on the car to help tackle the challenges of a growing population, increased traffic congestion and pollution in our city to help create a smart, liveable and sustainable city.


Featuring talks, demonstrations, workshops and networking, this event is an opportunity to share learning, challenge thinking and inspire change!
