Pan-European eRoaming: Five European eRoaming platforms – Hubject, e-clearing.net, Enel, GIREVE and MOBI.E – have declared to join their offers.

Buy ’em: After recently launching its scrapping scheme (we reported), British Columbia now has revived its incentive programme. Starting April 1, anyone who buys an BEV or PHEV will receive 5,000 dollars, for FCVs the Canadian province offers 6,000 dollars.
Greener mobility in Britain: The UK government is to invest 3.9 million pounds (5.8m USD) to promote environmentally-friendly transport. Walking to school is on the agenda together with car clubs and electric bike sharing scheme trials. The latter are to receive 700,000 GBP.
EVs granted: A grant from Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District awarded Monterey County, California, 27,000 dollars towards the purchase of six electric vehicles each. This means the county is left to pay only 855 dollars per Chevy Spark EV and will then have a fleet of ten EVs.
Charging from a pedestal: Leviton launched a new pedestal for workplace charging. The new pedestal system integrates Leviton’s Evr-Green 32-amp electric vehicle charging station with a system that provides single or dual EV mounting options to allow users to charge two vehicles per pedestal.
