The Mayor of London has announced £1.5 billion for infrastructure projects to kickstart the capital’s COVID-19 recovery. Funding will go to projects designed to help support decarbonisation and create jobs, including ensuring the electricity infrastructure can support the electric vehicle (EV) rollout. Innovative planning tools will be used to identify the best locations around the city for chargers as well as the best times to charge. City Hall is working with companies like UK Power Networks and Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, as well as local authorities to identify green schemes and drive investment.
