50 charging points and growing: UK city of Sunderland is investing 500 million pounds (857m dollars) in getting people to switch from petrol to electricity. Money will flow into research, as well as into the extension of the city’s charging network – already one of the best in the country. The goal is to become a national hub for the low carbon economy.

Scotland gets three new public charging stations: The new locations are funded by the Scottish Government through Transport Scotland. While the charge point in Dumfries most likely is a DC quick charger, the sites in Annan and Castle Douglas seem to offer AC charging only.

EmiD kick-off: The showcase project “Electric mobility in Dresden” (EmiD) is headed by Fraunhofer Institute IVI and is supported by the city of Dresden, the Technical University of Dresden and local government bodies. Together, they have purchased and will test an electric fleet consisting of 16 electric vehicles to find out what is keeping people from using electric cars.
