On 25 September smartCEM Newcastle pilot site organised a demo event to disseminate the project among local and regional stakeholders.

The event focused on two main aspects of the pilot site:

  • Charging station management, in particular the use of Charge Your Car app to navigate to available charging points
  • EV driving efficiency, to encourage people to drive more efficiently in order to conserve their charge

All the participants had a chance to test their efficient driving skills onboard of a fully electric vehicle, the Nissan Leaf. Dirk Kok from University of Sunderland won the challenge proving his ability to drive the most smoothly.

To learn more about this event, have a look at this video:
