Funding and Procurement – What CPO business models and funding is available and how to apply

Part of a series, in partnership with Liberty Charge this webinar looks at the funding and procurement options for councils to assist with their on-street EV installation requirements.

The Government will provide £450m of funding to local authorities for the rollout of new electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. It’s part of a £1.6 billion strategy to deliver a network of 300,000 electric vehicles (EV) chargers by 2030, representing a tenfold increase in the current number of publicly available points. £500 million will be invested to bring public charge points to communities across the UK.

The £450 million Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) fund, which will fund projects such as EV hubs and on-street charging solutions.

A pilot scheme for the LEVI fund, launched in March 2022 enabled local authorities to bid for a share of £10 million in funding. There are a multitude of grant funding options as well as 100% privately funded solutions.

The purpose of this discussion was to share ideas and solutions to aid the funding and procurement of your EV charge point infrastructure, and enable the public sector to ask the expert panel any particular questions they had.

Ep 48. Achieving Net Zero - Cllr Abdul Jabbar - Oldham Council

As central government aims for the UK to be net zero by 2050, councils around the country make plans for how to reduce emissions. This episode’s guest, Oldham’s Councillor Abdul Jabbar outlines the importance of coming together to reduce the nation’s carbon footprint, the benefits of achieving net zero, and how Oldham Council are working to do just that.
 

Touching on the role that the public sector can play in sustainability, Cllr Jabbar said:
 

“I think it’s really important that the public sector gives true leadership in this space. I think something like one third of the carbon emissions in the country come from the public sector, so obviously we’re a big polluter in terms of the emissions.”
 

Councillor Jabbar also spoke about challenges being faced by organisations:
 

“I think the biggest one has been finance. Clearly the local government sector in particular has had its grants cut from central government by a huge amount and that’s had a very big impact in terms of our plans to take forward projects in relation to climate change, so that’s a major issue.”
 

To hear what Cllr Jabbar has to say about the mission to achieve net zero carbon emissions, listen to the latest episode of the Public Sector Executive Podcast.
