Electric vehicles help address the immediate issue of air quality in towns like Devizes, but also reduce carbon emissions by making use of renewable electricity generation. In September 2017 Sustainable Devizes held an event to showcase a wide range of electric vehicles from bicycles to cars and even a van.
In October 2018 Sustainable Devizes ran an evening event on converting existing bicycles to e-bikes. The slides from that event are available here. If you have any questions about this, or want to have a go at converting a bicycle then please get in touch.
