The Energy Unit within the Ministry of Communications, Works, Energy and Labour is about to embark on an Electric Vehicle (EV) Pilot Project.
The objectives of the EV Pilot project are as follows:
As indicated in the objectives above, one aim of the EV Pilot Project is to gather information on individuals' thoughts towards EVs and the drivability of EVs, through short surveys and driving interaction.
Another aim is to measure the impact of the islands topography and temperatures on the performance of an EV. The information produced will be used to assess the practicality of owning an EV, as well as people's willingness to make minor changes to their mode of transport.
ln order to move this study forward, the Energy Unit is inviting willing and able individuals who are interested in participating in this EV Pilot Project to communicate their interest via email to CartvO@sov.msor BurkeK@sov.ms.
Participants will need to undergo an initial driving session before being accepted into the study. Your participation will help us greatly improve the accuracy of the study. Interested persons are asked to indicate their willingness to participate in this pilot project on or before Wednesday 8th January, 2O2O.
