JOSEY WARDLEInfrastructure Manager
Profile: Josey Wardle
As a professional engineer, I have over 20 year’s experience of managing projects and my role at Zero Carbon Futures is to deliver Low Carbon Vehicle charging projects for customers across Europe. Projects have included the £7.8M Plugged in Places project which developed a comprehensive network of EV charging equipment across North East England and I am now delivering the national Rapid Charge Network project.
My role as Infrastructure Manager has given me the opportunity to be involved in some of the very first electric vehicle charge point projects in the UK and I still think of Plugged in Places as where it all began.
I wish I’d never done
Ran out of battery and our Peugeot iOn had to be returned on the back of a trailer. I’ve never lived that down especially as I had the team from OLEV as passengers.
“I love speaking to children about the opportunities ahead in low carbon technologies, encouraging the uptake of STEM subjects for the engineers of the future.”
I’m midway through a PhD at Newcastle University which is investigating the future for EV charging.
Zero Carbon Futures has installed almost 300 rapid charge points up and down the UK. Our project manager, Josey, highlights the Top 5 things she’s learnt from the experience.
