  • Cycling
  • Motorcycling and potentially electric scooters

The move to EV is happening. Demand will increase, be prepared:  

  • Review car park layouts 
  • Prepare ducting to meet increasing demand  
  • Is there adequate electricity supply? 
  • How will it operate – free charging or payment, slow charging or fast, how are spaces allocated?
