Derby City Council
Derby City Council has recently been awarded funding from a joint bid with both Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council, which will see the increase of the charge point network across our city, encouraging more electric vehicle ownership and usage across both the business and residential sectors.
Leading by example, the city council are investing in increasing their own electric fleet, and have seen the success of the city’s new car club introduced in Autumn 2015. These complimentary measures will each provide the impetus to develop a low emission zone in the city centre.
Derby City Council is looking to develop a package of business support measures to encourage investment in ultra-low emission vehicles and charging infrastructure at workplaces, that will transform fleet operations and increase green travel options for all employees.
By providing businesses with a range of services from grants to experiential roadshows that are tailored to their unique requirements, and designed to facilitate the adoption of ULEVs, we will enable businesses and their employees to reap early benefits from this emerging market.
We are shaping our vision for a low carbon transport future, a future that will make transport cleaner and greener for our businesses and our city.
