Electric and low carbon vehicles and the infrastructure that accompanies them are not new technology. However they are making up a larger proportion of council fleets and the demand for infrastructure is growing as demand for vehicles increases. This event will consider the technological developments in the sector and what may emerge in future as well as the Scottish policy context with a contribution from Transport Scotland.

It is important to remain abreast of trends in both low carbon vehicles and ESCOs. Clean air and deadlines on the sale of combustion engine vehicles ensure that local authorities must understand the impacts upon them, as large fleet managers of developments in transport and related energy and procurement issues. Equally ESCOs are growing in number as are alternatives such as white label arrangements. Still many officers and councillors from local authorities are not clear about the intricacies of these tools and when to employ them. The proposal for a Scottish government-owned energy company provides a further potential complication.

These events will be of interest to those with responsibility for energy, fleet, infrastructure and assets, fuel poverty, procurement, corporate policy and service managers. Both officers and councillors are invited. There will be opportunities to ask questions, discuss issues, talk about progress at other local authorities and contribute to the debate.
