TfGM asked us to advise on the commercial EVCI delivery landscape across the UK and other countries, and provide recommendations that would help Greater Manchester deliver its EVCI strategy.
We worked alongside TfGM and local authorities across Greater Manchester on a three-month study, engaging with stakeholders across the EV charging landscape, and undertaking desktop research and analysis on the market. We carried out around 30 interviews with chargepoint operators, local authorities and sector specialists to understand the challenges in current commercial models and available solutions.
We reported on short, medium, and long-term recommendations to TfGM and the local authorities for how best to meet their strategic objectives and define their roles in the context of their current EVCI delivery. The insight included in-depth market analysis and commentary on key issues facing the sector, including emerging commercial structures, trends in public-private partnerships, and case studies of market leaders around the world.
Our team collaborated with stakeholders to ensure our recommendations were deliverable and took consideration of the ongoing efforts by TfGM, local authorities and their partners.
