1 Electric Vehicles London Samantha Kennedy Transport for London May 2014 1

2 Why EVs in London? Climate Change –Road Transport produces 16% of London’s CO2 –EVs emit ~40% less CO2 using UK grid supply Air Quality –Road transport produces 45% of London’s NOx and 56% of central London’s PM10 –EVs have no tailpipe Low Carbon Economy –Potential to contribute 10-15k jobs and £600m annually to London’s economy by 2025 Journey Times and Trendsetters –90% car journey under 10km –~24% of British EVs are in London

3 National UK Action Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) Cross-government department to position the UK at the global forefront of ULEV development, manufacture and use. This will contribute to economic growth and will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution on our roads. Previous funding = £400m from 2010 to 2015  Infrastructure: including Plugged in Places (PiP) programme to kick start public charging infrastructure  Consumer grants: Plugged in Car and Plugged in Van grants to reduce high upfront costs of vehicles: on going  Research & Development: vehicle technology

4 EV Delivery Plan Electric Vehicle Delivery Plan Launched in Seoul, May 2009 100,000 Electric Vehicles in London as soon as possible Charging Infrastructure Incentives & Information Vehicles

5 Charging Infrastructure No Londoner to be more than 1 mile from public charging point Employee car parks to offer workplace charging points installed by business London Plan 20% of all new development car parking spaces to provide EV charging Comprehensive Public Network –Source London

6 Source London Launched May 2011 Now over 1400 charge points are available across London The largest publicly accessible charging network in the UK All points can be accessed by one smart card Membership £10 and electricity free Siemens delivering back office and IT to facilitate: Call centre for help, reporting issues Maintenance and emergency call out Facilitated by Plugged in Places grant £9.3M over 3 years to March 2013 Charging Infrastructure

7 Partners Part 1

8 8 Partners Part 2

9 Charging Infrastructure Currently over 1400 charge points

10 Charging Infrastructure

11 The EV charging industry has reached a level of maturity where it can continue to develop without the need for public subsidy TfL appointed IER To take over management & operation of Source from Summer 2014 Plans to expand network to 6,000 points by 2018 and move to a pay-as-you-go model Launch event was on 12.3.14 A Sustainable Future

12 Incentives & Information London 100% Congestion Charging discount Free parking in some boroughs National Tax breaks ‘Plug in Car Grant’ - Rebate up to £5000/25% ‘Plug in Van Grant’ – Rebate up to £8,000/20% Cars emitting <75gCO 2 /km FREE Cost of entry from Jan 2011 £10 per day

13 Incentives & Information Visit:

14 Integrating purchasing power Developed 2 procurement frameworks 1.To enable purchase up to 1,300 electric vehicles 2. To enable purchase £30M of electric vehicle charging infrastructure Economies of scale Standardisation and interoperability Both frameworks run until 2015 Incentives & Information

15 EVs and the Olympics Vehicles LOCOG had 200 electric vehicles in their Olympic fleet 116 electric vehicle charge points were installed in and around Olympic venues First time, in the UK, that multiple vehicles have been charged concurrently using multiple charge points Data collected enabled impact on grid and energy usage within depot to be monitored 114,315 miles covered by EV fleet in 4 weeks Vehicles - Olympics

16 Vehicles: TfL Fleets Electric Buses –Currently trialling 2 electric buses –6 more due 2014 –Trialling inductive charging Support Fleet –8 EVs now and 2 more on order –Funding to increase to 120 –Required in contracts (e.g. Victoria Bus Station)

17 Office of Low Emission Vehicles National Infrastructure Strategy (Sept ‘13) Vehicle Uptake Infrastructure Skills Development Smarter Electricity Grid New Funding: £500 million for 2015-20 “Call for Evidence” launched in Nov 2013 to inform development of new UK-wide package with aim to provide:  Market sustainability (move away from public subsidies)  Inward investment and economic benefits for whole UK

18 2015-20 OLEV Funding Package New Funding: £500 million for 2015-20 Main elements of package announced April 2014 including:  £200m for continuation of the Plug In Car & Van Grants  £31m grant support for other ULEVs e.g. HGVs and P2Ws  £35m cities scheme for 2-4 flagship cities  £30m for hybrid & electric buses  £32m for infrastructure incl. rapid chargepoints  £20m for ultra low emission taxis  £4m for gas infrastructure  £100m R&D (vehicles & infrastructure) ~£50m funding unallocated to enable flexibility as technology and market develops (e.g. hydrogen)

19 Research: Plugged in Fleets Initiative Objectives TfL sees commercial fleets as a key area of focus for EVs This initiative was proposed by TfL to try and understand whether there is a business case for EVs in commercial fleets Key findings Summary report published on 23 January 2013 Headline is that there is a clear business case for EVs in commercial fleets, taking into account the current suite of incentives available DfT funding a further 100 fleets nationwide Final report: blications2/Transport-fleets/Research- and-statistics/Plugged-In-Fleets- Initiative-Charging-Forward blications2/Transport-fleets/Research- and-statistics/Plugged-In-Fleets- Initiative-Charging-Forward

20 Vehicles: Zero Emission Capable Taxis Mayor announced aim to require all new taxis to be zero- emission capable by 2018 TfL engaging with taxi manufacturers Public consultation on proposals later this year

21 Research: Rapid Charging Study Feasibility study looking at potential for rapid chargers in London Will investigate locations, business models and challenges for installation Specific focus on needs of taxis and private hire fleets Due to publish spring 2014

22 Proposed Ultra Low Emission Zone for 2020? 22

23 Key questions for Consultation 23

24 Future of EVs in London TfL will apply for support for / direct applications to : –Zero Emission Taxi Fund for purpose built taxis. –Supporting the roll-out of hybrid and electric buses –Support for city initiatives such as for the UK’s first Ultra Low Emission Zone through a number of complementary measures –Dedicated Fleet rapid charging infrastructure –ULEZ implementation costs European Projects We are working with partners across Europe on LEV projects, including Clean Fleets, CAPIRE, FR-EVUE, ICVUE, ZEUS, UNPLUGGED Updating our London Strategy
