An Industry Initiative to Accelerate the Transition to Low Carbon Transport for Business and Consumers
We are an expert provider of professional services enabling the Electric Vehicle (EV) revolution for all market actors. The public policy benefits of EVs – whether that’s cleaner air, reduced climate changing emissions, or a smarter electricity system – are at risk without further intervention in the market.
That’s the conclusion of three workshops comprising over 30 organisations from across the EV value chain.
Electric Vehicle Governance Framework (EVGF):
Industry Empowering the Transition to Electric Vehicles
The uptake of EVs needs to significantly accelerate for the UK to fulfil its responsibility in meeting air quality regulations and legally binding climate change obligations. The challenges market participants face are immense, difficult and span across multiple market segments. Coherent and sustained action by the market and for the market is critical to deliver the swift and viable transition to electric vehicles.
Over the last couple of years, Gemserv has been working with a wide range of EV market participants to better understand developments and trends. In 2018, we established the Electric Vehicle Governance Forum in collaboration with Energy UK and engaged with a wide range of stakeholders through workshops and face to face meetings. As discussions progressed, industry representatives converged towards the view that an agile, accessible and digitally empowered industry-led Electric Vehicle Governance Framework (EVGF) may have a key role to play in supporting the uptake of EVs.
The aim of this EVGF is to deliver robust market governance with clear accountabilities to maximise economic outcome for all participates, including consumers. It will span across all participating industry sectors and government departments, with the aim of securing a common approach to delivering an effective EV market nationally, and going forward, potentially globally.
Gemserv has now launched a consultation to facilitate an evidence based, cross-industry supported approach for the development of the industry-led EVGF. Your help is needed to empower the market to migrate to EVs at scale. We call on all market participants to state what is critical to making this happen. Whether you own an EV, are a business involved in EVs, a public body or anything else in between, we would be delighted to hear your views
We invite responses to this consultation on or before 18 April 2019. If you are interested in responding, or would like further information, please download a copy of this consultation and response form below:
