Visit Electric Nation at LCV2017

Electric Nation has a stand at the Cenex Low Carbon Vehicle (LCV2017) event which takes place on 6 & 7 September at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire. Mark Dale from Western Power Distribution and Esther Dudek from EA Technology will also be giving a talk about the project, with a focus on presenting the real facts about the need for smart charging as the numbers of EVs in the UK increase.

Electric Nation can be found at stand number C3 100-101, complete with a Tesla hooked up to one of the project’s Alfen smart chargers. Come and have a cold drink and chat to us to find out more about smart chargers and the results of the project so far.
