A face to face and livestreamed workshop and electric vehicle experience on 14th and 15th September 2021

About this event

The Energy House 2.0 facility at the University of Salford will be a unique facility for the testing and development of smart and low carbon buildings ( and will make a major contribution to national and regional net zero targets.

The Greater Manchester Clean Air Zone will be introduced in 2022 and when fully implemented will see a daily charge for non-compliant commercial vehicles such as LGVs, HGVs, buses, taxis and private hire vehicles. Looking further ahead, beyond 2030 the Government has announced a ban on the sale of new petrol- and diesel-powered vehicles takes effect. All this will result in an increased uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) which combined with smart charging and smart buildings infrastructure will open up the potential for the future low carbon electricity grid. Combining these technologies with flexible agile tariffs also opens up the potential for cost savings for consumers.

What do these changes mean for your business? What will be the costs and benefits of adopting EVs? What are the practical implications of switching to EVs.

The Energy House 2.0 Team are running a free workshop that will address these questions. It is aimed at small and medium sized businesses in Greater Manchester specifically:

• Trades persons

• Small businesses involved in the sale and lease of vehicles

• Small fleet managers/operators

• Electrical contractors

• Consultants

The workshops will be facilitated by experts in their field and there will be the opportunity to view a range of electric/hybrid vans and cars and charging points.
