In an open letter on Twitter on Wednesday 16 October, Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG)
on Electric Vehicles (EV) Matt Western has called on the UK’s leading public EV charge point operators “to
embrace ‘interoperability,’ which will help make drivers’ experience more seamless.” In response to the
public letter, Renewable Energy Association (REA) Policy Manager and EV Lead Daniel Brown stated that
while the EV charging industry “has an opportunity to collaborate amongst itself and define how it wants to
tackle the issue of interoperability,” it remains at risk of “governmental and political intervention” if credible
progress is not achieved. He also deemed it “excellent to hear of the agreements that have been signed
between operators to date” with the hope for further industry-led progress in the coming months.
