The Electric Vehicle (EV) Energy Taskforce published a report, making recommendations to the government on EV and energy policy. Published on Tuesday 15 January, the report identified priorities: including the urgency of developing standards and codes of practice to enable interoperability and the sharing of data within the EV sector and with the electricity system. Other priorities identified were: the need for effective local and national planning and coordination to enable efficient investment, mediating the balance between future-proofing and asset stranding; and the criticality of smart charging; underpinned by a resilient network and clear market signals, to reduce the cost of supplying millions of EVs.
