The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has welcomed the launch of the Office for Low Emission Vehicles’ Plugged-In Places scheme. The new initiative will see £30 million funding made available to support the development of a pilot scheme to develop electric car cities across the UK. Feedback from these pilot schemes will then help to develop the future national charging infrastructure.  Commenting on the launch, SMMT chief executive, Paul Everitt said, “Today’s launch of the Plugged-In Places scheme marks an important development in the transition to a low carbon economy. It will open up new opportunities for UK companies, helping to maintain jobs and create prosperity within the sector, as well as providing new investment possibilities.”Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)
