The Council of the Isles of Scilly plans to appoint a legal services provider to support a project developing an alternative fuelling network, multi modal travel hubs and mobility platform to encourage adoption of ultra-low carbon transport.
The council is to trial innovative 'vehicle-to-grid' (V2G) technology.
The project is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the central government Local Growth Fund (administered by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership).
The council said: “The GO-EV project requires the support of a Legal Services [provider] in delivering this project. This is an opportunity for a legal firm to get involved in an exciting project at the forefront of electric vehicle technology with behaviour change in the form of a car-sharing scheme at its heart.”
The contract, which is worth an estimated £40,000 to £45,000, is to run from 17 September 2019 to 30 June 2021.
