 Local Elections 2022: ECA calls for better local EV charge point policy
With local elections taking place this Thursday (5 May), the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) is calling on its Members, the wider electrotechnical industry and the public to ask their local election candidates how they plan to cater for the massive rise in electric vehicles in the UK.
ECA's Energy and Emerging Technologies Solutions Advisor Luke Osborne shared a short video calling on viewers to ask their local candidates how they propose to ramp up electric vehicle charge point installation in their area.
ECA is the UK’s largest trade association representing electrical, electrotechnical and other engineering contractors in England, Wales and Northern Ireland at regional, national and European level. ECA member-companies are rigorously assessed before membership is approved.
Member firms have a combined turnover in excess of £6 billion annually. Member firms carry out design, installation, inspection, testing, maintenance and monitoring activity across the domestic and commercial sectors. This ranges from power and lighting to data communications, to energy efficiency and renewables, as well as the design and installation of cutting-edge building control technologies.
ECA’s near 2,700 members range from SME electrical firms to nationwide engineering contractors and building services firms that employ thousands of professionals on major UK projects. ECA members also support over 5,000 apprentices annually.
