The Zero Emission Vehicles Transition Council (ZEVTC)

The Zero Emission Vehicles Transition Council (ZEVTC) recently published its 2022 action plan, detailing how it will collaborate to accelerate the transition to zero emission vehicles (ZEVs).

ZEVTC detailed the importance of ensuring the transition to ZEVs is just and sustainable, highlighting the need for skilled workers for new jobs in the transport and energy sectors.

Additionally, the council agrees that its shared aim is “to make zero emission vehicles the new normal by making them accessible, affordable, and sustainable in all regions by 2030”.

ZEVTC says it will work together on several high priority areas in 2022 to support the transition to ZEVs by overcoming shared challenges, with charging infrastructure noted as the first challenge.

The ZEVTC will set out its vision for global charging infrastructure for light and heavy-duty vehicles, working closely with the private sector, and will launch a taskforce of automotive manufacturers, chargepoint operators and network companies to consider actions required to facilitate deployment.

It also states it will discuss how to ensure electricity grids are prepared to support increased demand for electric vehicle EV charging and explore how increased EV uptake can support balancing grids with greater levels of green power.  This includes flexible electricity agreements that can adapt to these requirements and provide a balanced and logical approach to where the additional power requirements come from and how energy is stored and distributed.
