EP13 Beyond Journeys: Tanya Sinclair, Policy Director UK & Ireland at ChargePoint: The story of the next 9 years
💬 “We’re all out there installing EV chargers, but there is no requirement on us to power those charges with electricity from renewable sources. And you think, actually, are we helping meet government’s climate change objectives here or not?” Tanya Sinclair
🎙️ Tanya Sinclair has worked in electric vehicle policy for almost a decade and is currently Policy Director at ChargePoint for UK, Ireland and Nordics.

💡 2.) the ways that we will charge EVs once we have mass adoption
💡 3.) the unique charging challenges for fleet owners, office car parks and mixed occupancy buildings
💡 4.) Lessons the UK can learn from other countries
