Durham County Council launches SOSCI… The Scaling On Street Charging Infrastructure project.

Join Durham County Council for the launch of an exciting new project, designed to implement EV charging infrastructure, for public spaces, across the North East. This FREE TO ATTEND event is open to north east organisations looking to find out more about how running EVs across the region will be feasible, thanks to this innovative new scheme.

Durham County Councilhas been awarded £250,000 funding by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), in partnership with Innovate UK, for an exciting new project to increase the take up of electric vehicles in rural locations. The SOSCI Project will support local communities to install electric vehicle chargepoints in areas where off-street parking isn’t generally available.

Staged as part of the EV Roadshow, part of the UK government’s Green GB Week campaign, the seminars will feature keynotes from Durham County Council, the north east local energy hub, SOSCI partners, and more.

Following the proceedings will be the opportunity to experience the vehicles that will soon become an everyday sighting on the roads across the region, first-hand. Market Place will play host to the EV Roadshow, a showcase of the very latest ultra-low emission cars, vans and even electric push-bikes, with test drive opportunities available too.
