Are you involved with the low carbon transport sector?

Do you have an interesting project you’re keen to develop?

How about a £1,000 grant to bring it to life?

EValu8 can offer grants of £1000 to support your low carbon transport innovations. This is a huge opportunity.

We have a limited number of grants; they’re disappearing fast but there’s still time for your business to apply for £1,000.

You’ll be surprised how the grants can be used – market research, promotional activity, consultancy support plus of course, product development.

Look at the details of this £1,000 funding and talk to us about a project you have in mind. Don’t miss out!

LCV 2013 photo

Last week the EValu8 team went along to the premier event of the Electric Vehicles calendar: Low Carbon Vehicle (LCV) event 2013.

LCV is a definite ‘must’ for businesses interested in low and ultra low carbon vehicle technology.

For the second time, delegates arriving by Electric Vehicles enjoyed free charging on site; EValu8 supported the installation of the charging points with APT for the event.

Both days were extremely well attended and gave us a fantastic opportunity to network with all the key players in the industry.

The range of Electric Vehicles continues to grow as a fast pace; many new models were there over the two days, giving delegates a chance to have a really close look at the newest of the EV range. This included the electric Ford Focus and BMW i3.

Included for the first time were scooters and three wheel security vehicles, which featured alongside passenger cars.

We were pleased to see so many people at the EValu8 stand and enjoyed particularly interesting discussion around rapid chargers and the future of the LCV industry.

We’re on the brink of a huge growth in the number fast-charging stations for EVs.

The length of time it takes to recharge an Electric Vehicle is one of the major reasons hindering the widespread adoption of EVs, emphasised by Alastair Hayfield of IHS Automotive.

“Compared to the time it takes to refuel an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle, the recharge time for EVs is incredibly slow” Alastair explains. “If EV auto manufacturers could overcome this obstacle, it could lead to a high rate of adoption from environmentally minded consumers as well as those seeking to cut gasoline expenses. That’s where fast charging comes in.”

Total fast-charging stations for EVs are set to reach 199,000 locations globally in 2020, up from just 1,800 in 2012, reported by Electric Vehicle News. The number of these stations, meanwhile, is anticipated to rise more than threefold in 2013 to 5,900 and then nearly triple to 15,200 in 2014. Overall growth will continue at a rapid pace through 2020.

With faster charging and a growing range of impressive EV models to choose from, driving green is worthy of serious consideration. Funding grants are available to save up to 75% saving on charging point purchase. Talk to EValu8 to find out how we can save you money and start your EV journey.
