    Mobility

    Name SUMP - Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan
    Yes / No
    Remark

    ULEV Delivery Plan; Car Club Strategy; electric bus programme

    Name Mobility City Apps
    Yes / No
    Remark

    TfL Journey Planner has options for walking; City Mapper displays options for walking; no app specifically aimed at alternative fuels

    Name Car Sharing
    Yes / No
    Remark

    Car Club Strategy; Car Club Evidence Summary

    Name Car Pooling
    Yes / No
    Remark

    Car sharing services are also included within the car club strategy, though not car pooling

    EV Charging

    Name Workplace charging incentives
    Yes / No
    Remark

    Workplace charging is encouraged; some parts of the London Plan promote mixed developments, including the provision of charging infrastructure

    Name Use of Renewables to feed infrastructure
    Yes / No
    Remark

    Options are being explored; renewable energy usage is actively encouraged for all charge point operators and in our engagement with stakeholders; the Source London network is planning to increase its usage of green energy

    Name Public charging
    Yes / No
    Remark

    The residential charging network stream of Go Ultra Low City Scheme is devoted to on-street charging; many other chargers are currently located on-street

    Name Payment for use of public chargers
    Yes / No
    Remark

    Private charge point operators apply membership fees, although these membership fees are under revision. For the charging infrastructure under the Go Ultra Low City Scheme, charge points are required to accept payment under PAYG or card. Rapid charge points will cost more to use than standard charge points

    Payment method used varies by charge point operator; primarily membership fees, although it will be required that all infrastructure is interoperable so PAYG can be used

    Name Interoperability between service providers
    Yes / No
    Remark

    This will be a requirement for infrastructure installed under the Go Ultra Low City Scheme

    Name Incentives for infrastructure innovation
    Yes / No
    Remark

    London is involved in projects regarding inductive charging and lamp column charging through the Eliptic project and the Neighbourhoods of the Future element of the Go Ultra Low City Scheme, respectively - one of the purposes of the Neighbourhoods of the Future projects is to trial and test innovative charging technologies and policies

    Name City wide covering of EV charging
    Yes / No
    Remark

    One of the goals of the Go Ultra Low City Scheme is to provide a city-wide charging network covering all London boroughs; private charging networks are also expanding their network coverage - for example the Source London network has made a public commitment to expand from 1,400 charge points to 6,000 charge points by 2018

    Name Charging habits management
    Yes / No
    Remark

    Private network operators such as Source London and Chargemaster's Polar network, along with other private network suppliers, monitor the usage of their charge points, but this data is not publically accessible; the Source London network usage was monitored before it became a private network; all infrastructure installed through the Go Ultra Low City Scheme (and the rapid charging network) will be monitored using the same back office system

    Incentives

    Name Restricted areas use
    Yes / No
    Remark

    London conducted a study where it was concluded that EVs in bus lanes would be detrimental to the overall transport system

    Name Purchase incentives for private entities
    Yes / No
    Remark

    ZEC Taxi and PHV Licensing Requirements have incentives towards new vehicles; there is a 50% ULEV target for car club fleets by 2025, and this is being supported by the deployment of a car club charging network through London's Go Ultra Low City Scheme project (please note that the internet link attached is based on London's original bid for £20m, whereas London was awarded £13m through this scheme, so the proposals were reduced by 35%); smaller schemes to support delivery vehicles within the Neighbourhoods of the Future element of London's Go Ultra Low City Scheme, including consolidation centre elements

    Name Parking incentives
    Yes / No
    Remark

    Borough-dependent - some London boroughs offer free or reduced parking for AFVs, but each London boroough is in charge of its own parking policies

    Name Incentives for infrastructure purchasing
    Yes / No
    Remark

    Go Ultra Low City Scheme (£13m) - investment in a residential charging network, a car club charging network, and a contribution to the existing development of a rapid charging network for commercial vehicle fleets and taxis and private hire vehicles, as well as supporting smaller schemes to deliver innovative charging technologies and policies; National Infrastructure Plan (£10m) - development of a rapid charging network that will address the needs of taxis and private hire vehicles due to changes to their licensing requirements to become zero emission capable vehicles

    Procurement

    Name Procurement Goals
    Yes / No
    Remark

    Mayor's Air Quality Strategy; Mayor's Air Quality Fund (MAQF); different projects within the MAQF such as Low Emission Neighbourhoods and the Zero Emission Network

    Name AFV Policies
    Yes / No
    Remark

    TfL fleet vehicles to be replaced by AFVs; plans for AFV buses as outlined in previous sheet; replacement of council vehicles in some London boroughs
