Understanding how to transition to EVs: event for Cheshire businesses

Businesses in Cheshire can find out how to save money – and reduce emissions – by switching to electric vehicles (EVs) at the ‘Understanding how to transition to Electric Vehicles’ event on Tuesday 21 May at the Civic Hall, Ellesmere Port.

Delegates will hear from a range of expert speakers from organisations including Stellantis, Cheshire West and Chester Council, Green Car Guide, Energy Saving Trust, SP Energy Networks, Groundwork and West Cheshire & North Wales Chamber of Commerce.

In addition to the main presentations running in a session from 8am to 10am, there will be specialist presentations from 10am on subjects such as developing local EV charging infrastructure through the forthcoming new LEVI (Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure) charging network.

Topics covered on the day will include:

  • Update on the latest EVs and how businesses can benefit from switching, including how to save up to 40% on a new electric vehicle through salary sacrifice.
  • How to charge EVs, including selecting and installing suitable EV charging infrastructure.
  • Getting the power to charge EVs.
  • The transition to building electric vehicles at Stellantis’ Ellesmere Port factory.
  • How EVs are a key element in the journey of a business to net zero.

Test drives of the latest electric vehicles will also be on offer, as well as the ability to talk to organisations offering solutions in areas such as EV chargers, renewable energy and sustainable transport.

Event delegates will receive a free Electric Vehicle Business Toolkit, providing essential information for organisations about EVs and charging.
Following the business breakfast presentations, the event will be open to the public from 10am to 1pm.

To secure a free place at the ‘Understanding how to transition to Electric Vehicles’ event from 8am to 10am, which includes breakfast refreshments, businesses need to register here.
