Cheshire West and Chester Council has arranged everything relating to electric vehicles (EV) to be brought together under one roof in a showcase for business and residents in the borough.

The free ‘understanding how to transition to electric vehicles in business and at home’ event will be held at Ellesmere Port Civic Hall on Tuesday 21 May, with the first two hours solely for businesses, from 8am to 10am, and then open to the public from 10am until 2pm.

With specialist speakers, and around 20 exhibitors, the event will include test drives, forthcoming vehicle releases, grants available, plus how to select and install suitable EV charging.

Stellantis will also be presenting on how their Ellesmere Port plant has been remodelled to support EV production.

If you are a business and coming to the 8am to 10am session, you will need to register for this free to attend event. Anyone attending after 10am does not need to register.

Tickets are available from Ticketsource now.

Local dealers will be there with a range of the latest EVs for test drives.

To take part in the test drives, just download your DVLA licence check before you come, by visiting: This will speed up your registration on the day, though checks on the day are possible if needed, just bring your driving licence and NI number.

The Council has recently secured a £2 million Electric Vehicle Charging Grant. The new funding is expected to enable an initial installation of around 600 chargers, with approximately 300 in car parks and 300 on-street locations across the borough. The initial installation phase will start in late 2024 and is expected to take around five years.

More information about the event will appear on the Council's website
