So logically car park spaces with a charging point will only be available to electric vehicles, reducing the number of spaces available to other vehicles?March 9, 2018 at 9:59 am #145985
The Glyndwr talk was excellent last night with the speaker bringing a number of dimensions to the issue. One of the key points was how new petrol/diesel cars will be a thing of the past in the next 20 years. The energy revolution of cars being a mobile energy source that could be plugged into the house and run household appliances was fascinating. Also charging a car with street lighting without having to plug in seemed futuristic but the technology is already available and just needs scalability to be mainstream.
The science fiction that was in comics 20/30 years ago is certainly now science fact.
To harness these new practices we need visionaries and futurologists within Local Authorities and Welsh Government to plan the future and not just create a solution for the problem of today.
The speed of change around us now is coming so fast with everyday items and services being reinvented every five years. With five year cycles for elections, our political structure does not give politicians the inclination to think beyond their term of office.March 9, 2018 at 11:18 am #146003

Yes I agree but over the next 5 to 10 years over 80% of new cars will be fully electric or part electric so having some charging only bays are needed but how many are Wrexham adding & will they enforce Electric Charging only in those bays?
To stop car park spaces being used up too much its better to have RAPID charging points in petrol stations & supermarkets where you only spend 10 to 30 minutes in & with Rapid charging that will charge your car by 40 – 80%March 9, 2018 at 8:25 pm #146052
So do we need to force builders and developers to fit charging points in new houses. And how will people living in terraced houses and flats charge their cars?March 9, 2018 at 8:43 pm #146054
The talk last night highlighted how cars could be charged from street lights without an electrical connection – ideal for terraced properties.March 9, 2018 at 8:55 pm #146055
Charging from street light is the ideal way to charge but 2 things night hamper that. 1 the street lamp has to be on the road side,majority are on the pavement side close to the houses. 2. If charging over night stopping some toe rag from not stealing the charging cord.
Rapid charge at petrol stations may help us including me that live in a terrace house with & no pavements. Interesting times ahead!March 10, 2018 at 12:18 am #146060
Street charging or cars and how it works NOW!March 10, 2018 at 5:56 am #146061
I bet there’s going to be a good trade in black market cables.April 24, 2018 at 9:16 pm #148142
