ILP helps you make the right feeder pillar choice for your electric vehicle charging plans

Aug 17, 2021 | CPD, Events

The UK is urgently in need of an electric vehicle charging infrastructure, for three major reasons:

  • The sale of diesel and petrol cars will be banned by 2030
  • Major UK cities are already banning petrol and diesel cars in city centres to reduce pollution
  • The Office for Low Emission Vehicles ambition is to have zero emissions on Britain’s roads by 2050

Every street lighting professional has a role to play, and the ILP has stepped up for those considering where to begin.

The Institution has launched a ‘Light, Seen’ CPD session to look at types of feeder pillars, types of electric chargers, and explain points to consider.

The technology behind this will be explored along with a real life case study based in Bristol, UK. This presentation will be of great relevance to electrical engineers, street lighting professionals and those with a role to play in net zero.

The online event takes place on 14 September and is free to attend.

The ILP seeks to be as inclusive as possible, so if you have any concerns about applying for membership / attending our Exterior Lighting Diploma courses, LDC local events or our one-day courses for whatever reason please let us know and we will try to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that you can fully engage with the ILP.
