On 4th March OREF met with EV owners to discuss Orkney’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy.
In 2014 OIC produced a strategy that planned how to encourage the adoption of EVs. At that time there were about a dozen. In 2015 we sent our ‘No CO2!’ message written in EVs to the Paris talks. Now there are close to a hundred EVs in the county!
20 people came along to the event and some useful ideas were put on the table along with a great snapshot of local experience. Output from the morning will inform a draft new strategy to help OIC and others get what we need as EV drivers.
Following the meeting, a question came up about how much charging is done on public chargers and how much at home. To answer this question locally we have set up a google poll.
If you are an Orkney EV driver then please use the link above and let us know how you charge. We’ll factor that into the strategy.
