London sustainability scheme ‘could benefit eco-friendly firms’

London firms could soon find themselves involved in a new strategy to encourage electric car use across Europe.

The capital is among 19 European cities and regions taking part in research to coordinate the roll out of electric mobility across the continent.

The Electric Vehicles for Advanced (EVA) cities consortium has given its support to the EU demonstration project to integrate 9,500 electric vehicles into urban environments.

London, as well as companies in the north of the UK, will be taking part in the scheme.

One North East head of strategic economic change Chris Pywell said: “The proposals from the EVA Consortium would greatly increase the number of electric vehicles on Europe’s roads and accelerate the development of key technologies like Smart Grids.”

The announcement follows the publication of WhatGreenCar’s top ten list of the most innovative eco-friendly vehicles on the market this year, including details of potential tax savings in the capital offered by vehicle manufacturers.ADNFCR-2805-ID-19560838-ADNFCR
