London Partner and Co-Leader of the Energy, Environment & Infrastructure Team Mark Richards authored an article published July 13 by PBC Today regarding a possible shift to electric vehicles in the UK. Richards examines the riddle of how to support the massive shift to electric vehicles and the opportunities for the construction industry to take a leading role. “There are inevitably challenges with any technological transition of this scale, especially when the transition involves vast sums for consumers and capital infrastructure in new technologies, but the potential opportunities for the construction industry and wider car and component manufacturing sector are enormous, especially where the UK can take a European lead in battery manufacturing and software,” he wrote. “There has never been a better time for the construction industry to plug-in to the e-mobility sector.”
